Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and his wife, Ayesha, have welcomed their latest addition to their family: baby boy Caius Chai, born on May 11, 2024. They announced this in an Instagram post showing a picture of the newborn's hand: "Our sweet baby boy decided to make an early arrival!!".

"He's doing great, and we're finally home, settling in as a family of 6! So thankful!" Caius is the fourth bundle of joy for the Currys, as he joins siblings Riley, 11, Ryan, 8, and Canon, 5. Interestingly, Caius came into this world on the day following Mother's Day, thus adding an advanced level of celebration into the household of the family.

Stephen—one of the most famous NBA players in the Golden State Warriors—took to Instagram on Mother's Day to pay tribute to Ayesha, inscribed by heartwarming images of her with their older kids. He celebrates his wife for brightening their days and giving unwavering support and guidance toward being the best they can be.

Most recently, Ayesha starred opposite Lindsay Lohan in the Netflix film Irish Wish, and revealed her pregnancy news publicly back in March through an essay for Sweet July Magazine. She expressed that despite previously thinking three children were enough, she and Stephen felt compelled to add to their family.

"For so many years, Stephen and I thought we were done," she wrote. "And then, last year, we looked at each other and agreed we wanted to do this again."

Feeling Incomplete

The decision, as Ayesha described, stemmed from a nagging feeling that someone was missing from their lives, a sentiment that prompted the couple to pursue another child.

She recounted always feeling like she had forgotten someone whenever the family prepared to go out, which led them to believe that their family was not yet complete. Further adding to the family's narrative, Ayesha revealed at the Voices of Beauty Summit hosted by Landing International on March 28 that while the idea of having a fifth child seemed daunting, she felt four children would perfectly complete their family.

She humorously shared that she wasn’t pushing Stephen towards a vasectomy just yet, suggesting he should wait until he retires from professional basketball.
