All about Riley! Stephen Curry’s daughter Riley Curry might be just two years old but she’s a total superstar in the making.
The adorable tot stole hearts and headlines at Thursday, July 16’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards show held at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Westwood, CA. There as her dad Stephen’s date, the sweet little girl wore her hair in a top knot and rocked a cute pink t-shirt and white shorts combo as she walked the red carpet with her pop.
But it was inside the show that little Riley really turned heads — upstaging her NBA star dad every time he won an award!
The first time she heard her father’s name called out (for Clutch Player of the Year) she totally froze. “Riley had the cutest reaction,” and audience member tells Us Weekly. “[Stephen] lifted her up to move her off his lap and she stayed kind of frozen for a moment. Then as he started walking up to the stage, she started clapping for him — such a proud daughter!”
Although the little cutie made the most of the commercial breaks (dancing to the music on her dad’s lap) she didn’t have long to wait until Stephen won a second gong (for Sickest Moves). This time Riley was starting to get the hang of things.
“Stephen gave Riley a high-five before walking to the stage to accept,” our observer says. “Riley tried to follow him twice but was caught by a girl in the Curry party.”
Having gained in confidence, the little tot was completely certain what she wanted to happen when her dad’s name was called out for a third time (this time for Best Male Athlete) — she was going up too!

Not that her new-found confidence lasted that long! “She kind of hid between her dad’s legs and the podium,” the audience member says. “She was much more shy on stage than she was in her seat.”
But when dad Stephen got the crowd to wish her a happy birthday, little Riley relaxed a little, and even high fived Nick Cannon as he presented her dad with his award.
It’s not the first time Riley’s shared the spotlight with her famous dad. Last month, Stephen’s adorable daughter hitched a ride on the Oakland Warrior’s victory parade float having been his super-cute mascot throughout the basketball season.
