New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire is now engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Alexis Welch, after popping the question on Saturday night in Paris.
According to a report published online on People on Sunday, June 3, 2012, Stoudemire asked Welch for her hand in marriage while overlooking the Eiffel Tower lights outside of their penthouse at Le Meurice Hotel Belle Etoile Royal Suite at 11 p.m. local time .
“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 was quoted as saying by People.
Stoudemire presented Welch with an 8.5-carat radiant-cut ring, worth more than $1 million, that he designed with celebrity jeweler Shayan Afshar.
They plan to get married in 2013, reports said.
