After breaking things off with his sonsgtress girlfriend and reconciling with his baby’s mother, New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire is now a married man. Stoudemire, who dated Ciara throughout 2011, is officially off the market after secretly tying the knot with Alexis Welch. Welch is the mother of Stoudemire’s three children and the woman he returned to after dating Ciara and reportedly having a brief fling with Amber Rose.
The New York Post, who was given an inside look into the “secret nuptials,” reports that the Knick and his wife wed on the roof of his New York City apartment with less than seven other people in attendance. The pair was apparently inspired by the 12-12-12 date. Stoudemire wore a traditional Calvin Klein tux while the bride and their children wore traditional ethnic garb. The ceremony comes after the NBAer proposed in June. He and Welch have reportedly been on again, off again since 2002.
Stoudemire has since confirmed the good news via Twitter and shared a few snaps marking the ceremony. Check out Ciara’s ex-beau’s wedding photos below. –danielle canada
