Amar'e Stoudemire Used Twitter To Alert The World He's Engaged

New York Knicks fans would love Amare Stoudemire to put a ring on it, but not exactly like this. On Sunday, the Knicks’ star power announced that he’s tying the knot with girlfriend Alexis Welch, broadcasting the news via Twitter. The tweet, along with a photo of the ring, read:


“Paris, the food, & lights were very romantic. When she said yes, it was surreal. I’m still floating. ‪#engaged‬ ‪#blessed”


Stoudemire also chose some interesting and dapper threads for the special night, as per this Deadspin post. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but it looks like Amare’s right hand is all better from his famous bout with a glass fire extinguisher case after Game 2 of the Knicks’ first round playoff ouster to the Miami Heat.


No word yet as to when or where the wedding is, or where the bachelor party will be (probably Israel), or who will ultimately be on the guest list. All I know is that I hope Mike D’Antoni and Carmelo Anthony are among the groomsmen. That would be spectacular.
