Steph and Ayesha Curry celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary on Tuesday, and while we’re sure they have something fancy planned to commemorate the occasion (they did just take Riley to Paris for her 7th birthday, so the sky is the limit), the most they did publicly on the actual day was gush over each other on social media. If you were expecting deep and romantic notes, they definitely didn’t disappoint.
“My baby, my love, my life. What can I say,” Ayesha wrote. “This is us 8 years married in, loving each other for 11 and we somehow still find reasons and things that we love about each other every day. Each day with you is the ultimate blessing. Getting to do life with you is an infinite sea of bliss. Through our ups and downs we only become stronger and that is the ultimate key. When the trauma becomes the triumph you win! I love you for ever and always constantly giving the ultimate glory to God. Here’s to 8!”
Steph also shared a Boomerang video of them toasting one another with shots while lauding Ayesha, saying “that’s my baby right here.”
“This wasn’t today but this was the vibe to celebrate 8 years of officially doing life together. Growing strong through all the ups and downs,” he said. “Life is all about perspective, and my perspective is clear! That @ayeshacurry…..that’s my baby right here….love you and thank you for being my Proverbs 31:10-11 everyday!”
In the Bible, Proverbs 31:10-11 reads, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.”
Steph and Ayesha said, “I do” on July 30, 2009 and since then, they’ve welcomed daughter Riley, 7, daughter Ryan, 4, and son Canon, 1. Though they’ve been married for eight years, they were together years prior after meeting at a church youth group when they were teenagers.
“Putting ourselves first, and making sure that we make time for date nights and for each other. That’s been very important, as hard as it is,” she said. “Because when you become a parent, you want to put your kids first, and we do, but we do it second to our relationship. Because ultimately, when our relationship is good, the kids are happy and they’re thriving and our family life is good. We have to put that into perspective and realize that it’s not us being selfish, it’s making sure we set a strong foundation.”
