NY Knicks captain Amar’e Stoudemire spent his weekend in Paris taking in the Watch The Throne concert….and getting ENGAGED! He popped the question to the mother of his three kids, Alexis Welch, with a million dollar ring.
People.com reports Amar’e whipped out the 8.5-carat radiant-cut diamond ring, worth $1 million, in their penthouse suite at Le Meurice Hotel. Overlooking the Eiffel Towel of course. The setting has 3.50 carats of flawless diamonds set in 18-carat white gold. And he surprised her with the proposal after spending the day taking in a private tour of the city and a romantic dinner.
“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 told PEOPLE from Paris.
Amar’e gushed about his romantic night tweeting:
Paris, the food, & lights were very romantic. When she said yes, it was surreal. I’m still floating. #engaged #blessed
