"We're blessed that we were able to extend our family," said Stoudemire.
New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire and his wife, Alexis, are starting off 2013 on the right foot. The couple confirmed to People they are expecting their fourth child late this spring.
“We’re blessed that we were able to extend our family,” said Amar’e. “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 is just as excited despite having morning sickness, “It was just perfect timing.”
Together the couple have three kids, Ar’e, 7, Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4—who are all very excited about their new brother or sister.
The lovebirds also ended 2012 on a good note. They quietly wed each other on the rooftop of their NYC apartment on 12-12-12 after getting engaged in Paris last June. “It was beautiful to have a private ceremony with close family and friends. I planned it,” said Amar’e. “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.”
The father of three says they’re planning a bigger wedding in the summer. “We’re planning a big, extravagant Cinderella wedding for Alexis!”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
