In just a few months, the Curry family will have enough members to make a basketball team! Ayesha Curry announced via Instagram on Friday that she and husband Steph Curry, already parents to daughters Riley, 5, and Ryan, 2, are expecting their third child sometime this year.

"Heyyyy how did this happen?! Curry party of 5. Feeling very blessed ... and very sick. Yippie! #curryfor3 😍 " she captioned a series of two photos in which she strikes a confused expression while looking at her belly in one, then smiles at the camera in the next. In both, she wears wide-leg linen pants and a white T-shirt emblazoned with the word "PREGGERS" (the same shirt that Beyoncé once wore while pregnant with her twins last year, according to People).

The cookbook author and her NBA husband, who married in 2011 after meeting when they were teenagers, spoke about their plans to grow their family in the June 2016 issue of Parents. "[Steph] would have three more kids right now if he could," Ayesha said at the time, though Steph added that, for the time being, he was perfectly content focusing on the two kids they already had. "I think about the milestones from my childhood, and what it will be like to watch our kids go through them," he said. "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." The Golden State Warriors point guard continued, "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."

Ayesha, 28, also shared her love for 29-year-old Steph's parenting style. "The thing I love about him is that he's not too cool for school," she said. "He'll get down on the floor and play with the girls. He'll put on dress-up clothes if he has to, and he's very patient, which is something I'm not. We balance each other out."
