Canon's birth marks a very eventful summer for Stephen Curry, as he helped the Golden State Warriors win the NBA championship, the team's third in the last four NBA seasons, back in June.

Stephen Curry's two daughters, Riley and Ryan, made headlines during the Warriors' playoff run after Ayesha posted a picture of the two sleeping during Golden State's 101-92 Game 7 victory over Houston for the Western Conference championship.

The Curry family is well known across the Queen City as Stephen's father Dell played 10 seasons for the Charlotte Hornets.
