"I have been planning my proposal for a while and overlooking the entire Paris skyline seemed like a perfect place. I am so happy she said yes and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife," Stoudemire, 29, said in a statement to Us Weekly from Paris.

Welch's engagement ring was designed by Stoudemire with Los Angeles-based celebrity jeweler Shayan Afshar.
