Riley also posed for some pictures alongside her daddy on the red carpet prior to the show, and it looks like she’s not the only mini-me in attendance. Riley actually managed to steal a few headlines during her father’s magical championship run.
During Thursday’s Kids’ Choice Sports Awards, Stephen’s name was announced as the winner for Clutch Player of the Year award and Riley could hardly believe it.
The little girl, who is about to turn 3, has upstaged her father in a public place yet again.
The toddler’s jaw dropped in amusement as her dad’s name was being called to snag the award. “[Stephen] lifted her up to move her off his lap and she stayed kind of frozen for a moment”.
She’s not even 3.
“To all the kids out there, dream big”.
“Stephen gave Riley a high-five before walking to the stage to accept”, the observer said.
The recently retired New York Yankees star was the recipient of the Legend Award at the prizegiving, which honors the best athletes in sports.
Curry left his daughter in her seat to receive that award, but perhaps that was because he knew he’d have more opportunities. After he thanked the fans for the award, he told the audience to wish Riley a happy birthday.
