Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry are quite possibly the most adorable couple in sports–though Gabrielle Union might have something to say about that–and they took their adorable ass relationship and their adorable ass family to the cover of Parents magazine, where the soon-to-be 2-time reigning NBA MVP admitted that he once leaned in to try to kiss Ayesha, and it didn’t go very well.

“It was friends vibes,” she said, “until I dodged his first kiss.”

“Yep,” Steph admitted, “I struck out.”

In the full interview, which you can read here, Steph and Ayesha discuss their social media fame, Ayesha’s cooking prowess, Steph’s super dad relationship with a rapper that also has kids, and of course, their wonderful family. Or, you could just keep reading up on the greatest shooter of all time tossing up an unmistakable air ball when he first went in for the kill shot on the love of his life. Go on, Mrs. Curry:

He was in mid-conversation and came flying at my face like a thief in the night,” she said. “So I was like, ‘No.’ Then I thought, ‘Oh, I didn’t know this is what was happening.’

Really Steph? Like a thief in the night? Still, we won’t play ourselves. It’s pretty clear who got the last laugh here.

This guy.
