Ayesha Curry Reveals How Daughter Riley Got Her 'Nae Nae' Skills

According to her mom, all the rhythm in the family comes from dad.

Riley Curry, the adorable 3-year-old daughter of Golden State Warriors MVP Stephen Curry, made headlines when she busted a move to Silentó's hit "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" back in July, and again in September when her dad and Jeremy Lin joined in.

Now we finally know where she got her skills.

Her mom Ayesha Curry, who stopped by HuffPost Live to discuss her partnership with Tj Maxx, admitted she couldn't take the credit for Riley's indisputable "Nae Nae" abilities.

"The rhythm, it’s not from me. I don’t have a rhythmic bone in my body," Curry told host Nancy Redd on Tuesday. "But the word on the street is that her personality is just like mine was when I was growing up. ... But her dad has some rhythm! So she might get the rhythm from him. But she’s definitely her own person."

And as for the "Nae Nae" moves themselves, it turns out Riley learned the dance at her preschool.

"So get this, she goes to Montessori School and I showed up one day and they said, 'Look what we learned!' And so she learned it at school! [It's] kind of hilarious, and it's been a wrap ever since," she said.
