12.12.12 will forever be a special day for Amar’e Stoudemire and his family. The NBA player and his longtime girlfriend Alexis Welch married in a secret ceremony yesterday.
“12.12.12 now has a special & spiritual meaning for us,” the New York Knicks basketball player tweeted Wednesday along with a photo of the couple’s wedding rings.
The New York Daily News reports that the couple tied the knot in front of 12 guests, which included their three kids Amar’e Jr., Ar’e and Assata.
“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.
