According to the NY Post, NBA Baller Amar’e Stoudemire and his fiancée, Alexis Welch, were a part of the mass of engaged couples who rushed out to jump the broom on 12/12/12 and make their special day even more special by occurring on a day that won’t come around again.

The couple, who has been dating, probably off and on, since 2002, got engaged this summer in Paris, and reportedly tied the knot yesterday in a super-private ceremony on the rooftop of the Knicks’ apartment.

Sources say the couple was inspired by the special 12/12/12 date, and wed in front of their three children — Amar’e Jr., Ar’eand Assata — and a few other family members. “Less than seven other people were there, no Knicks teammates. It was just about them,” a source said.

As has become the trend among celebs lately, the couple is planning a much bigger and more extravagant celebration that everyone can attend, the source added:

“They are planning a big bash next year for friends and family to have a great time.”

On Twitter, Amar’e also confirmed the news, by tweeting this pic of their wedding rings and saying: “12.12.12 now has a special & spiritual meaning for us.”

Congrats to the newlyweds!

    How sad for a black woman to marry a black man three babies later and being dogged by him. He simply married a woman who is willing to be in an open marriage. It must be his money! SMDH.

    Congratulations, we need to commit to making our families stable and marrying. The life of the babydaddy and baby momma needs to stop.

    Congrats to them. I really hope they don’t make in Judge Toler’s court getting a divorce. I hope she and him does not think the marriage is going to be a cake walk.
