It’s a boy for Amar’e Stoudemire!

The New York Knicks forward and wife Alexis have welcomed their fourth child — a son — Stoudemire, 30, announced via Twitter on Wednesday.

“We are proud to announce we added a healthy baby boy to the Stoudemire team,” he writes. “Alexis and the baby are doing great. #Blessed”

The couple, who married in December in New York City, shared the pregnancy news in January.

The newlyweds are already parents to children Ar’e, 7, Amar’e Jr., 6, and Assata, 4.

“As soon as Amar’e walks into the door those kids are all over him,” Alexis tells PEOPLE. “He’s like a big kid. He’s a great dad.”

How do you pronounce those names and how many of each? I can tell he’s got at least two sons, now. What are the other two?
