Michael Jordan Is a Dad to Twin Girls

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Basketball legend Michael Jordan and his wife Yvette welcomed twin girls the couple has named Victoria and Ysabel, as PEOPLE.com reports:

His wife, Yvette Prieto Jordan, delivered identical twin daughters Victoria and Ysabel on Sunday, Feb. 9 in West Palm Beach, Fla., his rep confirms.

“Yvette and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival,” spokeswoman Estee Portnoy says.

Jordan has three grown children — sons Jeffrey, 25, and Marcus, 23, as well as daughter Jasmine, 21, with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy, whom he divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage.

The couple announced the pregnancy only in late November, and they did not disclose that they were expecting twins.

Michael Jordan, Wife Expecting First Child Together

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

Michael Jordan, the basketball legend, is expecting his first child with his new wife, Yvette Prieto, PEOPLE.com reports:

After meeting at a Miami club in 2008, the two tied the knot last April at a ceremony in Palm Beach, Fla., attended by 500 guests.

Later, about 1,500 joined the couple at a lavish reception at a nearby golf-course community in Jupiter, where Jordan owns a 38,000-square-foot home. Robin Thicke and Usher were among the star-studded performers at the fête.

“They’ve been planning for months and months,” a source told PEOPLE of the couple’s all-out wedding. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”

This will be Jordan’s fourth child — he has three grown children with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy, whom he divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage.
