Michael Jordan Welcomes Twin Daughters Victoria and Ysabel
Michael Jordan has more to be happy about than just the improved play of his NBA franchise.
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.
The couple announced the pregnancy in November, although they never publicly confirmed that they were expecting twins. After meeting six years ago at a Miami club, Jordan, 51 next week, and Prieto Jordan, 35, tied the knot last April.
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.
He won six NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and was a 14-time All-Star and five-time league MVP.
Jordan is the owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, who are currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and have a chance to make the postseason for the first time since he took over as majority owner in 2010.
