Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto Having TwinsBy: Daryl Nelson - December 19, 2013
Ex-basketball great Michael Jordan has been known to reach double figures on the court, now he’s expecting double bundles of joy, as he and his wife Yvette Prieto have recently announced they’re expecting identical twin girls, according to TMZ.
Word first came on Nov. 30 that the married couple was expecting, and up until this point they’ve done a pretty good job of keeping news of their twins under wraps.
Prieto is a 34-year old Cuban-American model and Jordan at 50 years of age already has three grown children with former wife Juanita Venoy.
Prieto and Jordan tied the knot back in April of this year at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Fla and reportedly the 300-person event ran the couple a cool $10 million, which is most likely just a drop in the bucket to Jordan, who still earns $80 million a year, according to Forbes.
In other Jordan news, the Tar Heels alum failed to unload his 56,000-square-foot mansion in the Chicago area during a recent bidding. The asking price for the colossal sized home was $13 million, which dropped from the original asking price of $29 million back in 2012.
The lavish digs include 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, a cigar room, a beauty parlor, a billiard parlor, a library and a basketball court just for starters and it sits on 7-acres of land in Highland Park, Ill.
Currently, Jordan and Prieto share a 28,000-square-foot mansion in Jupiter, Fla., which holds 11 bedrooms, a state-of-the-art gym and other luxurious amenities, so there’s no doubt there will be plenty of room for the newly married couple and their twin girls.
According to a TMZ source, mother and the two babies are doing “just fine,” however they’re hardly providing any information about the delivery date and other details, which is probably a smart move for the celebrity couple.
