Amare Stoudemire is a hopeless romantic! New York Knicks star went down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend and mother of his three children, Alexis Welch, during a romantic dinner at a hotel suit overlooking the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France on Saturday night (June 2).
â€œI have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place,” Amare said. “I am so happy she said ‘yes,’ and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.â€
OMG. Who said romance is dead? Amare offered his fiancÃ©e a stunning 8.5 carat diamond ring set in a delicate white gold band designed with the help of jeweler Shayan Afshar that is reportedly worth over a million dollars.
Amare shared how happy he was as a newly engaged man on Twitter. â€œParis, the food, & lights were very romantic. When she said yes, it was surreal. Iâ€™m still floating. #engaged #blessed.,â€ he wrote.
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple!
