Amar'e Stoudemire is now just one kid short of a basketball starting lineup. On Wednesday, May 22, the New York Knicks player announced that his wife, Alexis Welch, had given birth to the couple's fourth child, a baby boy.

The proud dad, 30, shared the happy news via Twitter. "We are proud to announce we added a healthy baby boy to the Stoudemire team," he tweeted. "Alexis and the baby are doing great. #Blessed."

Together since 2002, the athlete and his wife are already parents to two daughters, Assata and Are, and son Amare. They got engaged in Paris in June 2012, when Stoudemire presented Welch with an 8.5-carat diamond. Six months later, they married in a secret sunset ceremony in New York City.

"12.12.12 now has a special & spiritual meaning for us," the basketball player tweeted shortly after the couple said their "I dos."

Looks like 5.22.13 will be a memorable occasion going forward, too!
