Michael Jordan Welcomes Twin Daughters
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Michael Jordan welcomed the birth of his twin daughters Victoria and Ysabel this week saying that both they and their mother were doing fine. He also confirmed that the babies were identical twins.
Jordan has three other children from his former wife Juanita Vanoy. They are Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine. Jordan and Vanoy divorced in 2006. Jordan met Yvette in 2008 and the couple began living together in 2009. The couple married in Palm Beach, Florida last year and had a huge reception afterwards at the Bear’s Club, an exclusive golf course community. The guest list contained the names of over 2,000 people, many of who were celebrities and sports stars.
The twins will be the first children for the couple together and for Yvette and since Jordan’s three other children are grown, he will be starting all over again and likely facing the same fears and challenges as any new dad. The babies were born on Sunday in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Jordan is a basketball legend and played for the Chicago Bulls. He helped bring the team to six NBA championships and was a 14-time All-Star and five-time league MVP himself. He is now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats.
Hopefully Jordan is as good as parenting as he is at basketball and will help Yvette out as much as possible over the next few days as she rests and gathers her strength after delivery. Maybe Jordan can stay on his game by shooting those dirty diapers in the trashcan and pretending like he is making free-throws.
How do you think Michael Jordan will handle being a new dad again?
