Ayesha Alexander and Stephen Curry met in a youth group at Central Church of God in Charlotte, which both their families attended.
After high school, Ayesha moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. While Stephen was in Los Angeles for a basketball camp, he sent her a Facebook message asking her to hang out.
“She tried to play me off, saying we could hang out another time if I was ever back in town,” Stephen told Carolina Bride in 2012. “She didn’t know I was coming back the next week.”
Once Ayesha moved home to Charlotte, the two officially started dating. Stephen was still attending Davidson College, and Ayesha continued her acting career – including a role on the series “Whittaker Bay” and a spot on “Hannah Montana.”
The two had been dating for a couple of years when Stephen proposed. They married on July 30, 2011.
