“We’re blessed that we were able to extend our family. We’re both huge on having a nice size family. It was something we’ve been taking about for a while. But it happened naturally and at the right time so it all worked out,” Stoudemire tells People.

Alexis adds, “It was just perfect timing.”

The couple already have three children — Ar’e, 7, Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4. Alexis says all the children are “very, very excited,” adding they can’t wait to know if it’s a boy or a girl.

The couple plans to have another wedding this summer, after the NBA season is over, which Amar’e says will be a “big, extravagant Cinderella wedding for Alexis!”
