The NBA Knick player has had many ups and downs with the mother of his children, Alexis Welch. He has three kids with the beauty but they would break up and get back together over their 10 year relationship. Stoudemire even dated singer Ciara for a bit but he realized it was time to get his act together and make an honest woman of the mother of his children and real love.
The baller took Welch to Paris where he got down on one knee and proposed, he even shared that he teared up when she said yes. Stoudemire did not skimp on the ring either, he proposed with an 8.5 carat radiant cut ring, worth more than $1 million dollars. The engagement ring was designed by celeb jeweler Shayan Afshar. The couple announced they will be walking down the aisle in 2013.
The only problem with this engagement announcement? The haters. As in Ciara. Who posting a picture of herself wearing a bunch of diamond rings the very day the news was made public. Bitter, eh?
