When news broke that Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto gave birth to twins this week, the first thought everyone had was, Who is Yvette Prieto? Surely you remember the hottie who has been with His Airness since 2008 and you definitely remember their wedding in April of 2013, a party that reportedly cost $10 million. Well, if you’ve never actually figured it all out, here’s everything you need to know about the mother of Jordan’s twins:
She’s a 34-year-old Cuban-born model who has been dating the 50-year-old Jordan since 2008. The couple moved in together in 2009 to a three-bedroom home that cost less than $300,00 in Kendall, Fla., a suburb of Miami. Prieto reportedly filed for bankruptcy in 2002 and Jordan helped her get her financial life in shape, even though she has modeled for multiple major designers, including Alexander Wang.
If you’re wondering if Jordan is Prieto’s first celebrity lover, he’s not. She actually dated Julio Igelsias, the brother of singer Enrique Iglesias, before pairing with Jordan. Considering the two have been together for almost six years now, she’s really good-looking and she’s the mother of his two youngest children, it’s safe to say they’ll be together for a while. Jordan was married to his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, for 13 years before they divorced.
Now the greatest and most popular basketball player of all time is again happily married and a new dad. You now know everything there is to know about his new bride and the mother of his two youngest children. Your life is complete now, right?
