I will keep my first thought to myself and defer to Jocks and Stiletto Jill for the details.

Stoudemire asked Welch for her hand in marriage while overlooking the Eiffel Tower lights outside of their penthouse at Le Meurice Hotel Belle Etoile Royal Suite at 11 p.m. local time. He surprised her with a dinner after they spent the day taking a private historical tour of Paris that included stops at the Louvre and other landmarks.

“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 told PEOPLE

Stoudemire surprised Welch with a 8.5-carat diamond ring – reportedly worth more than $1 million – he designed with the help of celebrity jeweler Shayan Afshar.

Welch was the LONG TIME girlfriend. She has been with Amar’e since 2002 and they have 3 children together. I equate it to a baseball player hanging out in the minors for a decade and now getting called up tot he Majors.

Ms. Welch will now officially be a basketball wife.

Besides Amar’e looking homeless, that was a nice proposal, my only advice……..

    Damn. I equate that to the Royal Rumble. She was an early entry that outlasted many. We thought she was thrown out the ring but only one foot touch the floor.
