DNC 2020: How old is Riley Curry? Ayesha Curry and Steph Curry's daughter backed Biden and broke the Internet
In a video surfaced on the Internet on Thursday, August 20, Riley said that she is 'happy' when asked about how she feels that Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as the vice-presidential nominee
It seems like having political acumen has nothing to do with age which has been proved by Ayesha and Stephen Curry's eight-year-old daughter, Riley Curry. Riley is following the rhythm sung by her NBA player dad and actress mother in supporting Joe Biden for the 2020 presidential elections.
A video surfaced on the Internet on Thursday, August 20, showing Curry's support for Biden as they sit with their two daughters, Riley and Ryan. In the video, the Curry’s are seen asking questions to their daughters and it seems Riley, the elder one, has answers to all. In her innocent and adorable voice, she lets us know that the president’s job is to “keep the environment safe”. When asked about the characteristics of an ideal person to lead America, Riley said that the person has to be “kind” and that they should "take care of earth and people”. Riley said that she is “happy” when asked about how she feels that Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as the vice-presidential nominee. She said there are “not a lot of women” so she will like them to see “working alongside the president and helping him”.
This is indeed an impressionable statement from an 8-year-old and heralds that America must choose wisely for a president. In the recorded message, Riley’s parents say that “We want to ensure that our kids live in a nation that is safe, happy, healthy and fair and so this election we are voting for Joe Biden”. The adorable video which has a jolly good conversation was shared by Joe Biden in a tweet, “[email protected] and @ayeshacurry: Thank you for your support. When I’m president, you and your family are welcome at the White House any time.And, Riley and Ryan, the Vice President will be @KamalaHarris. I think you’ll really like her. #DemConvention."

But the main highlight of the video was Riley, who’s charm and cheerful endorsement of Biden made the Internet swoon. Many said that Riley who is just a kid is actually more mature and “woke” than most Americans given her winsome words. Others joked that is it worth the risk, if someone does not vote for Biden given that Riley has endorsed him publicly. Others are so awed by her that they are ready to support Biden after she supported him. Some called her a “smart and young lady” while for others who were impacted positively by her words, she was the “queen”. A fan wrote, “Riley Curry more woke than 90% the country and she’s 8.”

Another concurred, “Riley Curry will know if you don’t vote. Is it really worth the risk?”

However, some people noticed that the video might be scripted with spoonfeeding of political messages to kids and lamented. “If all it takes is an 8-year old whose millionaire parents feed lines to convince you who to vote for then that explains it”.

Riley, born in 2012, has a younger sister Ryan, 5, and brother Canon, 2. Additionally, she is the granddaughter of former NBA player, Dell Curry, and niece of Seth Curry who plays for Dallas Mavericks. Riley has already stolen the spotlight in May 2015 several times in some press conferences held post-NBA matches where she is seen sitting with her father, post a match. She giggled and waved at a crowd of journalists and provided a dose of entertainment. NBA Family wiki says that she is a child model too.
