Ayesha Curry‘s tampon got caught out this weekend. The cookbook queen and wife to basketball player Steph Curry was looking red hot in her Saturday Instagram update, but the figure-flaunting outfit was only the half of it.
Ayesha, 30, did point fans right to the tampon in her caption – and no, it wasn’t being used – but the result only seemed to see users love this star more. The caption nailed the post, this mom was being honest, and Instagram is absolutely on-board with it.
Ayesha’ photo was a bedroom one, with the author and media personality seen standing amid rows of shoes and railed clothing as she shot the camera a gaze from in front of a mirror.
Ayesha was on fire with her look. She’d opted for a super-tiny and bandeau-style crop top in elasticated black, pairing the ab-flashing upper with a shiny pair of metallic pants in icy blue.
Ayesha posed looking confident and sexy from behind a pair of shades – anyone looking at the snap likely wouldn’t have spotted the tampon being held in Ayesha’s right hand.
“Tampon… but make it fashion. (dang mirror ?),” Ayesha captioned her picture.
Aeysha definitely got a response with that update. The post clocked over 196,000 likes in 18 hours, also bringing in some celebrity likes – Gabrielle Union, Jordyn Woods, and Olivia Munn all left a like.
Responses seemed to see everyone amused.
“??? I say Skip the clutch and just carry it ??” was a reply from singer Katie Torwalt.
Kelly Rowland replied: “LMFAO?.”
“I’m amazed that you can wear a crop top while on your period ?,” one fan wrote, with countless others also leaving cry-face emoji.
Comments to celebrity updates can often be short and simple – a sexy snap will easily bring in long strings of emoji.
Users were out with words for this post, though.
“You are so real!!!” one fan told Ayesha.
“Love seeing this post of normal life,” another added.
“Hottest tampon photo I’ve ever seen” was yet another comment picking up on the caption.
Ayesha is known for keeping it real on Instagram. The star may have tagged luxury brand Versace in her photo, but the holier-than-thou attitude isn’t something you’ll find on this mother’s social media.
Ayesha is busy, juggling a high-profile career, a celebrity wife status, plus the three kids she shares with husband Steph.
Speaking to Refinery29 last year, Ayesha was asked what advice she’d be passing onto her kids. Alongside saying she’d want her little ones to know that “the world is their oyster,” Ayesha related her motto.
“And from my mom, just to work hard. Tune out the naysayers, and regardless of what happens, if you’re passionate and your conscience is good and you have a pure heart, things will ultimately usually work out. And to know that everything’s okay!” she added.
Ayesha has 7.1 million Instagram followers.
