Sydel Curry-Lee Shares Her Journey To Becoming Pregnant Following Infertility Issues

Baby makes 3.

Former volleyball star Sydel Curry-Lee is basking in her pregnancy following a long, tedious journey of trying to get pregnant. Sydel, who is the sister to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, married her brother's teammate Damion Lee in 2018 and they began trying to get pregnant three months later.


"We were like OK, 'I love you, you love me, and we've spent a lot of time together even before we were married, so let's just try and have a baby,'" she said on her YouTube channel in June.

However, it wasn't that simple. After eight months of trying naturally, Sydel became pregnant, but she unfortunately miscarried.

"I would test multiple times a day every day, and when doing that, I noticed my positives kept getting lighter and lighter and just ended up disappearing, and so that was kind of heartbreaking. My progesterone levels wouldn't stay high enough to have viable pregnancies, so I ended up losing those embryos in the early stage," she said. "That's what a chemical pregnancy is, like an early miscarriage."

Due to a number of unsuccessful attempts, the couple decided to do IVF treatments and they documented the journey in a three-part video series.

The couple started IVF in November 2020 and after two rounds Sydel finally became pregnant. "Finding out by myself and then surprising my husband was really really special to me. We were really excited, really proud of ourselves, and very thankful," she shared.

Following the IVF series, Sydel documented sharing the exciting news with her family, including Steph and Ayesha Curry, her doctor appointments and the couple's gender reveal (they're having a boy!) In late October, Ayesha threw Sydel an elegant baby shower with an adorable teddy bear wall.

Thanking her sister-in-law, she wrote, "This day! I can't express enough how much love & support I've felt through this journey. The thoughtfulness put into this day as we get close to meeting baby boy was so special! Thank you @ayeshacurry for loving on me and your nephew 🤍 I left that event feeling grateful for the tribe of women that I have here in California and I'll never take that for granted."

It looks like Sydel is ready to give birth any day now. Just last week, the podcaster shared a black and white image with hubby and captioned it, "Finish line 🖤 with you @dami0nlee."

Congrats to them!

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
