Ayesha Curry recently opened up about making the “rash” decision to have a breast augmentation after the 2015 birth of her second child with NBA superstar Steph Curry.
“I didn’t realize at the time, but after having Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while,” Curry told Working Mother magazine. “It came in the form of me being depressed about my body. So I made a rash decision.”
The chef and cookbook author revealed during an appearance on The Rachel Ray Show that she had her breasts done in January. The outcome, though, was not what she expected.
“The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn’t want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet,” Ayesha said. “They’re worse now than they were before. I would never do anything like that again, but I’m an advocate of if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgment?”
The wife and mother of three also spoke to the magazine about the criticism she receives about her career and people assuming Steph funds her businesses.
Ayesha made headlines this month after being vocal about Steph having groupies and her feeling undesirable to men.
“Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that, yeah, there are all these women, like, throwing themselves at him, but me, like the past 10 years, I don’t have any of that,” she on Red Table Talk. “I have zero—this sounds weird—but, like, male attention, and so then I begin to internalize it, and I’m like, ‘Is something wrong with me?’ ”
Amid the backlash, the Golden State Warrior defended his wife on Instagram for being “authentic” and “putting [herself] out there.”
