Ayesha Curry opens up about botched plastic surgery after second child

Ayesha Curry

Ayesha Curry has made some headlines during the postseason due to her openness with the public.

Unafraid to publicly share some of her insecurities, Curry, the wife of two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, said in an interview with Red Table Talk last week that she wished she had more attention from 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,” Ayesha said. “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?'”

Now a week later, in an interview with Working Mother, Curry discussed the botched plastic surgery she underwent after the birth of her second child, Ryan. Ayesha says she underwent the plastic surgery to help her postpartum depression.

“I didn’t realize at the time, but after having 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,” Curry told Working Mother. “So I made a rash decision. 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. 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?”

Both admissions from Ayesha are along the same lines; she’s acknowledged insecurities about her appearance. It takes a lot of courage to make these admissions public, especially when she received some backlash for asking for male attention, though she’s not new to the harassment.

Despite her postpartum depression after the couple’s second child, they had a third child who was born last year. Ayesha says they are probably done growing their family.
