Opening up on the Red Table Talk show on Facebook, Ayesha did frankly admit that sometimes she does doubt herself in the relationship. "Something that really bothers me, and honestly has given me a sense of a little bit of an insecurity, is the fact that, yeah, there are all these women, like, throwing themselves [at him]," she revealed.

The couple have three children together, and when Steph recently took to Instagram to share a rare photo of Riley, eight, and Ryan, five, and, two-year-old Canon, fans were obsessed!
