Sonya and Dell Curry are ending their marriage after 33 years.
The parents of NBA stars Stephen and Seth Curry have been separated and Sonya finally filed for divorce in June. The pair, who met at Virginia Tech University and wed in 1988, also share daughter Sydel.
“After exploring a trial separation over the past year and much thoughtful consideration, we have decided to end our marriage. As this comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus and desire is for our family’s continued happiness,” Sonya and Dell, 58, tell PEOPLE. “We are so thankful for all the many blessings and successes! We stay committed to and supportive of our children and grandchildren and will remain on connected paths. We ask that our privacy be respected and prayer for our family as we move forward.”
Once the news got out, pretty much every available man on social media decided they would shoot their shot at Stephen Curry’s mom, because let’s face it….She is gorgeous for her age.
