Ayesha Curry must be about to sell something because lately she has been very chatty! The chef and mom of three spoke with Working Mom magazine to reveal that after the birth of her daughter Ryan her postpartum depression was severe. Ayesha’s postpartum led her to get a boob job that she is currently unhappy with!
“I didn’t realize at the time, but after having (my second child) Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while. It came in the form of me being depressed about my body. So I made a rash decision,” said Ayesha.
“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,” she added. “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?”
Ayesha Curry also discussed how once she moved from Canada to North Carolina as a teenager she experienced a culture shock with race. She had grasped the concept of being a Black Woman, and at times doesn’t feel black enough.
“My own community needs to embrace everyone better. Sometimes I feel like I’m too black for the white community, but I’m not black enough for my own community. That’s a hard thing to carry. That’s why my partnership with CoverGirl was special for me because I felt like I didn’t fit the mold [of a CoverGirl],” she adds. “I’m not in the entertainment industry, in the traditional sense. I’m not thin; I’m 170 pounds on a good day. It’s been a journey for me, and that’s why I want my girls to understand who they are—and to love it.”
Ayesha mother is Jamaican and Chinese, while her Dad is Black, but due to her kids fair skin they didn’t realize they were Black!
“Growing up in Canada, I identified as all things,” she says of her childhood in Toronto, where her neighbors were mostly Asian and Indian. “Then I moved to North Carolina at 14, and that was a culture shock. That’s where I realized, I’m a black woman, something I’ve grown into appreciating and loving.” It’s also a lesson she’s passing on to her daughters. “They’re fair in complexion, and they’ve said: ‘I’m not black; look at my skin.’ And I said: ‘No, no, no. You’re a black woman. You have melanin. It’s part of who you are. Our descendants are from Africa. This is what that means.’ It’s been a journey teaching them that.’”
