One week following the controversy over Ayesha Curry's decision to open up about her insecurities, Ayesha is once again opening up about her struggles in being a mom, maintaining a career, and the black community.
In a new interview with The Working Mom, Ayesha explained her decision to get a boob job after dealing with postpartum depression and the regret she felt after the "botched" surgery.
“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,” she explains. “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?”
Furthermore, Ayesha discussed how the community could do a better job at being inclusive and accepting all different shades of black in the black community and in the world in general.
“My own community needs to embrace everyone better. Sometimes I feel like I’m too black for the white community, but I’m not black enough for my own community. That’s a hard thing to carry. That’s why my partnership with CoverGirl was special for me because I felt like I didn’t fit the mold [of a CoverGirl],” she adds. “I’m not in the entertainment industry, in the traditional sense. I’m not thin; I’m 170 pounds on a good day. It’s been a journey for me, and that’s why I want my girls to understand who they are—and to love it.”
Ayesha went on to explain how she tries to teach her children to be proud and embrace their black heritage regardless of society's stereotypes of what it means to be black. The entire article, Ayesha opened up in depth about numerous topics mothers and women in general will definitely be able to relate too. Read the full interview here!
