Wow! The WNBA better make some room because Michael and his wife of eight months, Yvette, are expecting identical twin girls. Congratulations!
First comes love, then comes marriage, and sure enough, then comes a baby — or in this case, two babies! After Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto announced on Nov. 30 that they were expecting a little bundle of joy, a new report reveals that the couple are actually having identical twin girls. How exciting!
Michael Jordan’s Expecting Twins — Wife Yvette Prieto Pregnant With Twin Girls
Yvette and Michael are in for double the fun! The basketball legend’s wife of eight months is pregnant with twins, and the pregnancy is going “just fine,” TMZ reports.
The twins will be their first children together. Michael, 50, has three children — Jeffrey, 24, Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19 — from his previous 17-year marriage with Juanita Venoy.
A rep for Michael confirmed on November 30 that he was preparing to be a dad again, according to Us Weekly.
Michael Jordan & Yvette Prieto’s Massive Wedding
MJ married Yvette, a 34-year-old Cuban-American model, in April in what was one of the most lavish wedding ceremonies of the year.
They said their vows at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-By-The-Sea Church and were joined by over 300 guests, including Usher, Tiger Woods, Robin Thicke, Spike Lee, and many more.
Afterwards, the couple held their reception at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla. The tent where the reception was held was 40,000 square feet, bigger than the massive mansion MJ had built earlier in the year. And over 1,500 people were invited to the party.
“He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted,” a source told People at the time.
Well, now he’s given her twins, too! So we’ll go ahead and say he accomplished that mission.
Congratulations, MJ and Yvette!
