Rumors have often swirled around NY Knicks star power forward, Amar’e Stoudemire and the latest one is a lot more positive than we’ve seen in the past from this baller. Stoudemire’s made a honest woman out of his three-times over baby’s mother, Alexis Welch. I’ve always loved these two together and it’s beautiful to learn they’ve decided to make their bond, unbreakable (cue: Alicia Keys).
Surrounded by only close friends and family the two long-time loves created their union on 12/12/12–a date that is very special one for the couple, so they had a ceremony on the roof of their apartment in downtown New York City. Love is in the air and we’re so happy for the Stoudemires!
According to NY Daily News:
That’s amore for Amar’e — he’s a married man.
The power forward for the Knicks tied the knot with long-time partner Alexis Welch in a secret ceremony at sunset on Wednesday, Confidenti@l learned only hours later.
Amar’e Stoudemire and Welch, who have three children together, married on the roof deck of their apartment on Jane St., the same one that was flooded during Hurricane Sandy.
The intimate ceremony was attended by a mere 12 guests, signifying the special date they tied the knot: 12/12/12.
“They decided to do this because of the date, and they wanted to do something spiritual and private for themselves,” says one insider, who adds that the couple plan on throwing a bigger wedding this summer which Stoudemire’s teammates, who were not aware he was getting married, will be invited to.
The couple kept their plans under lock and key, playing coy about the details.
