Tony Parker, 32, wed fiancée Axelle Francine on Saturday in San Antonio, Texas, PEOPLE reports.

Parker and Francine, a French journalist, began dating in 2011 after the NBA star and actress Eva Longoria finalized their divorce. The couple has been engaged since June 2013 and, in April, welcomed their first child, Josh.

Prior to the wedding, the pair hosted a scaled-down reception at San Antonio’s Cowboy Dancehall for family and close friends.

The point guard also celebrated his new, $43.3 million, three-year contract with the Spurs, saying, “I want to play for the Spurs my whole career, and be a Spur for life.” Parker signed the extension on August 1.
