The New York Knicks forward and his wife — who just married on Dec. 12, 2012 — are set to welcome another child late in the spring! Congrats to the happy family!

Amar’e Stoudemire and his wife Alexis had a big year in 2012 — they got engaged in Paris in June and got married on top of their New York City apartment on Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12) — and now are ringing in the new year with happy baby news!

“We’re blessed that we were able to extend our family,” Amar’e, who is a forward for the New York Kincks, told People. “We’re both huge on having a nice size family. It was something we’ve been talking about for a while. It happened naturally and at the right time so it all worked out.”

The couple, who already have three children together — Ar’e, 7,Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4 — say their kids also can’t wait to add a fourth.

“They’re very, very excited,” Alexis told the magazine. “They just keep guessing if it’s a boy or a girl.” And if the NBA star has his way, they will find out the gender sooner rather than later — he said he can’t wait to see if it’s a boy or a girl!

And while the athlete is on the road playing for his team, he says his wife keeps the household and the family together. “She does it all,” he said. “She does such a phenomenal job with the kids. I’m just here to be the big teddy bear.”

But she insisted he’s more than that. “As soon as Amar’e walks into the door those kids are all over him,” she said. “He’s like a big kid. He’s a great dad.”

Congrats to Amar’e and Alexis! What do YOU think about them having another baby HollyMoms?
