Stephen Curry and his wife Ayesha have three children, daughters Riley and Ryan and son Canon. From Riley’s viral press conference moments to his family’s adorable Instagram posts, Curry’s role as a father and his achievement always makes headlines.

In honor of his birthday, here are 6 out of more quotes about fatherhood from Stephen Curry.

On Becoming A Parent

“You learn something from them every single day. They give you a reason to wake up in the morning, regardless of whether work is going well or not. Your biggest responsibility, obviously, is being a parent, and it’s just so much fun every single day when they change so fast and you’re trying to keep up. You get to share so many experiences with them and I’m enjoying every minute of it.”

On Fighting For Equality

“Riley and Ryan are growing up so fast. And with Ayesha and I suddenly seeing things through the eyes of these daughters of ours, who we brought into this world, and now are raising to live in this world … you know, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the idea of women’s equality has become a little more personal for me, lately, and a little more real. I want our girls to grow up knowing that there are no boundaries that can be placed on their futures, period. I want them to grow up in a world where their gender does not feel like a rulebook for what they should think, or be, or do. And I want them to grow up believing that they can dream big, and strive for careers where they’ll be treated fairly. And of course: paid equally. And I think it’s important that we all come together to figure out how we can make that possible, as soon as possible. Not just as ‘fathers of daughters,’ or for those sorts of reasons.”

On The Lesson He Wants His Kids To Learn

″[I want them to] be confident in themselves and understand that they are unique … There’s something about them that God’s put in their life that’s going to make them stand out, so embrace whatever that is. As they go through life, that’s hopefully what sparks their success.”

On Watching Children Grow Up

“I think about the milestones from my childhood and what it will be like to watch our kids go through them. Taking Riley to her first day of school was a whirlwind. I can’t imagine what middle school is going to be like, and high school, and graduation. All those little checkpoints are going to be fun, and there will be ups and downs along the way. Watching our children go through those life experiences will be amazing.”

On Staying Connected

“FaceTime helps me a lot. I feel like I’m at home even though I’m not. My girls get to see me, and Riley is at the age where she asks where I am and when I’ll be back, counting down how many ‘sleeps’ until Daddy gets home.”

On Raising A Son

“Earlier this summer, a few weeks after the season ended, Ayesha and I were blessed with the birth of our third child, Canon ― our first son. And one of the things that has been most on my mind, since then, is the idea of what it means now to raise a boy in this world. I already know, just based on his gender alone, that Canon will probably have advantages in life that his sisters can only dream of. How do you make honest sense of that as a parent? What are the values, in this moment, to instill in a son? It’s a lot to think about. But in the end … I think the answer is pretty simple. I think you tell him the same thing that we told those girls last week at our camp: Be yourself. Be good, and try to be great ― but always be yourself. I think you teach him to always stay listening to women, to always stay believing in women, and — when it comes to anyone’s expectations for women ― to always stay challenging the idea of what’s right. And I think you let him know that, for his generation, to be a true supporter of women’s equality ― it’s not enough anymore to be learning about it. You have to be doing it.”
