Congrats are in order! NBA player Amar’e Stoudemire of the New York Knicks and his wife Alexis are expecting their 4th baby together. Back in June, Amar’e proposed to Alexis in Paris with a one-million ring and this past December, the twosome officially tied the knot in a private ceremony on the rooftop of their NYC apartment building.
“We’re blessed that we were able to extend our family,” Amar’e told People.Com exclusively. He then added, “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.” “It was just perfect timing,” adds Alexis, who says she’s had some morning sickness but overall, “can’t complain!”
Amar’e and Alexis who already have three kids together — Ar’e, 7,Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4 say everyone is excited.
“They’re very, very excited,” says Alexis. “They just keep guessing if it’s a boy or a girl.” And it won’t be long before the sex is revealed, “I can’t wait to know what it is,” says Amar’e. “As soon as Amar’e walks into the door those kids are all over him,” says Alexis with a laugh. “He’s like a big kid. He’s a great dad.”
