“I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place,” Stoudemire told People from Paris. “I am so happy she said ‘yes,’ and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.”
The couple, who met in 2002 after Stoudemire was drafted by the Phoenix Suns, plans to get married in 2013.
