He may be out of the running for an NBA championship ring this season, but Amare’s finally made it official with another type of ring. The 29-year-old Knicks baller proposed to his girlfriend of 10 years () with a FAT rock and uber romantic proposal.
reports Amar’e whipped out the 8.5-carat radiant-cut diamond ring, worth $1 million, in their penthouse suite at Le Meurice Hotel. Overlooking the Eiffel Towel of course. The setting has 3.50 carats of flawless diamonds set in 18-carat white gold. And he surprised her with the proposal after spending the day taking in a private tour of the city and a romantic dinner.
Stoudemire told PEOPLE from Paris.
Amar’e gushed about his romantic night tweeting:
Paris, the food, & lights were very romantic. When she said yes, it was surreal. I’m still floating. #engaged #blessed
