The Currys are casting their vote for Biden.

Stephen Curry and wife Ayesha Curry are endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden — and they will appear Thursday night during the Democratic National Convention in a pre-taped video with their daughters, Riley and Ryan.

The video, a preview of which was shared early with PEOPLE, will show Ayesha, 31, and Stephen, 32, explaining their support of Biden and also talking with their girls about politics and race in what the campaign is describing as a "candid look at a family conversation."

"We want to ensure that our kids live in a nation that is safe, happy, healthy and fair," Ayesha (whose lifestyle magazine Sweet July is published by PEOPLE's parent company, Meredith Corp.) says in the video.

"And so this election—," she continues, before her NBA star husband jumps in: "We’re voting for Joe Biden."

Elsewhere in the video — which was produced by the Currys' AC Brands, SC30 and Unanimous Media along with Swing State Strategies — Stephen asks his daughters: "What would you say if you knew that Joe Biden was going to have a woman as his vice president?"

"Surprised and happy," Riley replies.

Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, is the first Black woman and first person of Asian descent on a major party's ticket.

She accepted her historic nomination in a speech Wednesday night; Biden will do the same Thursday, closing out the DNC from Wilmington, Delaware.

Stephen Curry previously endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
