    Steph And Ayesha Curry's Love Story Will Make Your Heart Hurt

    Ugh, they're so cute.

    Steph and Ayesha Curry have proven time and time again that they are #RelationshipGoals, #FamilyGoals, #LifeGoals, #ALLTHEGOALS.

    So when the couple recently sat down with Parents magazine, it was no surprise that they had even more #Goals-worthy things to say, including the details of their love story.

    Steph and Ayesha met when they were teens through their church’s youth group. And though Steph was always low-key interested in her, Ayesha’s parents didn’t allow her to date in high school.

    A few years later, Steph, a college junior in North Carolina, attended the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, where Ayesha was pursuing an acting career.

    So Steph contacted her via Facebook and asked her to hang out. "I mean, it was friend vibes … until I dodged his first kiss," Ayesha said.

    "He was in mid-conversation and came flying at my face like a thief in the night. So I was like, No."

    Their real first kiss took place in the driveway of Steph’s parents’ house in Charlotte, North Carolina — the same place he ended up asking Ayesha to marry him.

    Recounting the day, Steph said, "Yeah, it was like The Notebook. The plan was to act like we were going to a family cookout. So we pulled up to the house, and I stopped in the middle of the driveway, got down on my knee, and went into my spiel."


    As for why they decided to get married in their early twenties (Steph was 23 and Ayesha 22), Steph said, “I knew I had found the right woman and I wanted to start a life with her.”
