Congratulations to New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire and his wife Alexis who are expecting their fourth child this spring. They couple just got married in NYC on December 12.
Amar’e, 30, told People, “We’re blessed that we were able to extend our family. We’re both huge on having a nice size family. It was something we’ve been talking about for a while. It happened naturally and at the right time so it all worked out.”
Alexis, 29, added, “It was just perfect timing.”
They already have three children together — Ar’e, 7, Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4. Alexis says the kids are “very, very excited” and “They just keep guessing if it’s a boy or a girl.“
Amar’e revealed more about their wedding.
“It was beautiful to have a private ceremony with close family and friends. I planned it; I wanted to have something that was more spiritual where we could really understand what being married means. It was a great way to end 2012.”
Adds Alexis, “We included the children in our ceremony as well. That was very important to us. It’s something they’ll always remember.”
She also tells the mag, “As soon as Amar’e walks into the door those kids are all over him. He’s like a big kid. He’s a great dad.”
