PIC: Knicks' Star Amar'e Stoudemire Is Engaged to Alexis Welch
She said "Oui!"
Amar'e Stoudemire, New York Knicks captain, proposed to the mother of his three children, Alexis Welch, in Paris on Saturday.
After the couple spent the day taking a private tour of Paris, the six-time NBA All-Star popped the question outside their penthouse Le Meurice Hotel Belle Etoile Royal Suit overlooking the Eiffel Tower.
"I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place. I am so happy she said yes and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife," Stoudemire, 29, said in a statement to Us Weekly from Paris.
Welch's engagement ring was designed by Stoudemire with Los Angeles-based celebrity jeweler Shayan Afshar.
The couple met in 2002 and plan to say "I do" in 2013.
