The power forward for the Knicks tied the knot with long-time partner Alexis Welch in a secret ceremony at sunset on Wednesday.
Amar’e Stoudemire and Welch, who have three children together, married on the roof deck of their apartment on Jane St., the same one that was flooded during Hurricane Sandy.
The intimate ceremony was attended by a mere 12 guests, signifying the special date they tied the knot: 12/12/12.
“They decided to do this because of the date, and they wanted to do something spiritual and private for themselves,” says one insider, who adds that the couple plan on throwing a bigger wedding this summer which Stoudemire’s teammates, who were not aware he was getting married, will be invited to.
The couple kept their plans under lock and key, playing coy about the details.
