The 28-year-old took to Instagram this week to share a sultry, shirtless photo of her husband Steph, showing off the athlete’s chiseled abs and tone physique.
“Candid and all mine. Thank you Lord! Appreciate what God blesses you with ladies,” she wrote on the photo.
In the pic, the NBA champion is shown looking off into the distance while kneeling in the sand with a football.
Ayesha continued praising her husband in the photo’s caption: ” ‘Can’t keep my hands to myself’ … Selena couldn’t have said it better. Oh my heart. Oh my glory. Oh my Waikiki. Oh my yay area. OH! #MCE national husband appreciation day/ he’s gonna get me for this one.”
Ayesha has long been Steph’s number one fan and the love birds opened up about their relationship to PEOPLE last month, revealing that they aren’t too comfortable with their status as many’s ‘#RelationshipGoals.’ ”

“I don’t like people looking at someone else’s image,” Steph said.
“We want to represent the right things because that’s who we are, but we don’t like when people say ‘#RelationshipGoals’ and stuff. I want people to understand they have to live their own lives the way they want to and not just do what we do.”

So you like (okay, love) rosé, right? But you’ve probably only been enjoying the pink wine out of glass. Well, news flash: You’ve been missing out.
The popular summer sipper is extremely versatile—meaning you could be incorporating it into some of your favorite foods every day. To get you started, we enlisted the help of the executive chef at VANDAL, Jonathan Kavourakis—who partnered up with chef Chris Santos and the Giant Rosé Picnic and Music Festival Pinknic in New York this weekend to create gourmet picnic baskets for guests—and offer five unique ways to show you how.
1. Rosé and Strawberry Flavored Popsicles
2. Wine Reduction Sauce
“Mix rosé, salt and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and reduce until it is a syrup. Make a nice meat and melon platter and drizzle the the reduction over it as you would a balsamic reduction.”
3. Rosé Salad Dressing
Kavourakis suggests topping your favorite salad with this sweet vinaigrette. “Substitute half of the vinegar you would use to make a vinaigrette with rosé,” he says, adding it works especially well on bed of arugula with some goat cheese and champagne grapes.

4. Wine-Infused Fruit Salad
“Cut up seasonal fruit of your choice, and mix it with rosé and simple syrup,” he says. “Let it sit for a couple hours and the fruit will absorb the rosé and be tender, sweet and delicious.”
5. Rosé Sorbet
Not only is Kavourakis’s sweet treat delicious but it’s “very refreshing on a hot summer day,” he says. Start by boiling 1 quart water in a medium saucepan. Mix in 1 cup sugar, 6 grams sorbet stabilizer and ½ teaspoon salt. Simmer for 6 minutes then take off heat. Add 3 cups wine and 1 cup orange juice; strain. Chill and process in ice cream machine or freeze in an baking dish about 2 hours, stopping to scrape the mixture with a fork every 30 minutes.

A Kansas man is free after serving 17 years in prison in what officials think was a case of mistaken identity.
Richard Jones, 41, was exonerated and released on June 8 after serving a majority of his 19-year sentence for aggravated robbery in Kansas City. Jones learned that a man who may have been the true culprit was in the same prison — and realized the man looks just like him, ABC News reports.
“I hope and prayed every day for this day to come,” Jones told ABC. “When it finally got here, it was an overwhelming feeling.”
Jones was just 24 years old when he was convicted of trying to steal a woman’s purse in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart in Roeland Park, the ABC reports. He was given the lengthy sentence despite having an alibi and despite the fact that no fingerprints or DNA evidence ever linked him to the crime.
His conviction was based on two flawed eyewitness accounts, according to the Washington Post. The victim described her attacker as a thin, light-skinned man black or Hispanic man with dark hair and a police photo lineup showed Jones alongside five dark-skinned, black men.
After more than a decade of failed appeals, Jones learned that a man named Ricky Amos was also an inmate at the Lansing Correctional Facility. Jones then told staff at the Midwest Innocence Project and the University of Kansas School of Law that he was often mistaken for the man he’d never met.
“It made a lot of things understandable for me concerning this whole case,” Jones told ABC. “I just looked at how much me and this man looked alike and it was unbelievable.”
Like Jones, Amos is light-skinned with dark cornrows. The two also have similar facial hair and features.
“I believe it was a striking resemblance,” Jones added. “It just blew me away.”
ABC reports that a judge ordered Jones’ release last week after witnesses, including the robbery victim, said they couldn’t tell Jones and Amos. The judge ruled that, based on the new evidence, no reasonable juror would have convicted Jones.

Although Amos has denied any involvement in the robbery, an investigation showed that Amos lived near where the suspect in the robbery was picked up the day of the crime, the Kansas City Star reports.
Amos was never charged or found guilty because the statute of limitation for the crime has passed.
Still, Jones is happy to be a free man.
“I couldn’t let someone’s mistake make me waiver in my faith and ever make me shy away from what was real and what the truth was, and that was I was innocent and I knew it,” he told ABC.
When he was released, Jones hugged and thanked the officials who helped in his case, and he was shown in photos embracing his 2-year-old granddaughter.
