Dribble — er, drum — roll please: Amar’e Stoudemire‘s new baby boy has a name!

The New York Knicks forward and his wife Alexis have chosen Alijah Carsares Stoudemire for their fourth child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The proud parents’ newest addition was born Tuesday, May 21, weighing 7 lbs., 3 oz. and measuring 19½ inches.

Staying true to the family’s first initial trend, Alijah’s moniker follows in the footsteps of his older siblings, sisters Ar’e, 7, and Assata, 5, and big brother Amar’e Jr., 6.

“We are proud to announce we added a healthy baby boy to the Stoudemire team,” the doting dad Tweeted following the birth. “Alexis and the baby are doing great. #Blessed”

Congrats to the family! Love the names though my favorite of the bunch is Assata. Their little girl has some big shoes to fill with a name like that!

Such a beautiful name for their precious little angel. I wish the proud parent and their lovely children lives filled with happiness, good health and blessings! (I loved Amar’e’s tweet… his family truly is blessed!)
