New York Knicks power forward Amar’e Stoudemire has been sidelined on the bench for weeks due to an injury, but yesterday the star basketball player took himself out of a different type of game.

Stoudemire tied the knot to the woman of his three children, Alexis Welch, according to US Weekly.

In a private sunset ceremony in New York City yesterday Stoudemire and Welch held their wedding on the roof-deck of their apartment in the Greenwich Village neighborhood.

There were 12 guests in attendance, including the newlyweds’ children. The number 12 was the theme for the entire evening.

“12.12.12 now has a special & spiritual meaning for us,” Stoudemire tweeted after the ceremony last night.
