Why Ayesha Curry Took Daughter, 8, to a (7-Mile!) Black Lives Matter Protest: 'Not Sugarcoating'

Meanwhile, the kids have "been loving" having extra family time amid the coronavirus pandemic, when "they've had both" Ayesha and their basketball star dad "home 24 hours a day, seven days a week, month in and month out."

"Right now I think they're really enjoying everything, and when we do have to start traveling or start to go back to work outside of our home, I think that's going to be the tough part," Ayesha says.

She also feels like "a very lucky woman," as Steph "has actually been waking up with the kids every morning, and I get an extra 20 minutes of sleep, and that has been life-changing. For the first time in eight years, I'm the one to get the extra sleep. So that's been really special."

"For a while, [our routine] was looking like Zoom school every day, because the kids were still in school," Ayesha says. "So just balancing work, both of their Zoom schedules, cooking 'round the clock for everybody — that's been wild. I've always cooked with passion and made sure that dinner's on the table. But during this time it's been breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, every single day. We've just been at home, trying to keep it together."
