He proposed to Alexis Welch, the mother of his three kids, in Paris Saturday night.
The NBA star got down on one knee at the Le Meurice Hotel Belle Etoile Royal Suite at about 11pm local time, and handed her a rock worth more than $1 million, reports People.com.
"I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place. I am so happy she said 'yes,' and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife," Stoudemire said in a statement.
The hardware is a 8.5-carat radiant-cut ring and the setting is made up of 3.50 carats of diamonds set in 18-carat white gold. In other words, it's stunning and gigantic.
