The 30-year-old father of three, who is of Jewish faith, was said to have celebrated their union in a “tiny ceremony on his Manhattan apartment rooftop”, attended by a select group of family members and friends.

Plans of a bigger ceremony are rumoured to be taking place next year.

Several of Stoudemire’s fans shared their congratulations on the social networking, with one writing: “WOW! ! Those are some beautiful rings!!!! God bless! [sic]”

In the past Stoudemire has been romantically linked to US singer Ciara, who was spotted at several of his games in 2011.

Their alleged romance ended last last summer.
