Amar’e Engaged – Amar’e Stoudemire is known for his style when he’s not hustling as a power forward for the New York Knicks. This same style was transferred into designing a beautiful engagement ring for his longtime girlfriend and mother of his three children Alexis Welch.
“I wanted to design the right ring for her. I am having a great time looking over and seeing the engagement ring on her finger now,” said Amar’e of the sparkler designed by Shayan Afshar reportedly worth over one million. The beautiful couple sealed their commitment in Paris at the Le Meurice Hotel, overlooking the Eiffel Tower (same hotel Beyonce, Jay-Z and Blue Ivy Carter are currently staying).
The basketball star shared with People magazine,
“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.”
How sweet!!! He also shared on Facebook,
“The moment was surreal. I’m still floating. It’s great to allow someone, you truly trust and know, to take care of your heart. We have been deeply in love with each other for longer than most marriages last. Yesterday, day and night, was truly the best I ever had. The weather was great, the restaurant was fabulous, the city lights were so romantic. When she said yes, a tear fell from my eye.”
Absolutely beautiful. We’re sure their three children are ecstatic. Congrats to Amar’e and Alexis!!
