Michael Jordan and his wife have welcomed two new girls into the world. The former basketball star’s wife gave birth to twins, Victoria and Ysabel, on Sunday in Palm Beach, Florida.
The identical twin girls mark the fourth and fifth kids for Michael Jordan, but the first two with his current wife, Yvette. His other three children-Jeffrey Michael, Marcus James, and Jasmine, all came from his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy. The two of them divorced in 2006.
It was previously announced that the couple were expecting twins, and the couple, who resides in Charlotte, North Carolina are excited about the two new members of their family. They met six years ago, and were married on April 27th of last year.
They were married in West Palm Beach, while the reception took place at a private golf club. The wedding had around 300 guests, and included former NBA star Patrick Ewing, Spike Lee, Tiger Woods, and others. Jordan owns a home nearby, where the family will spend much of their time.
Michael Jordan’s spokesperson reported the news, saying, “Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival.” Jordan will be 51 years old next Monday, while his wife is 35 years old.
He also made headlines recently with the Charlotte Bobcats, and as the team owner, he has been heavily involved with the team since their creation. Before that, he was known for his lengthy career in the NBA as a star for the Chicago Bulls, where he won six NBA championships and was a 14-time NBA All-Star.
It was recently announced that the team in Charlotte would be returning to their old name of the Charlotte Hornets, and they would also be bringing on a new logo, one that looks much tougher than before.
Apparently Michael Jordan and his wife had twins. Saw an article about it and one of the commenters said, "A Pair of New Jordans." Hah!

The name became available again after the New Orleans Hornets changed their name to the Pelicans. The Bobcats are also currently in eighth place in the Eastern Conference with a chance to make the postseason for the first time.
The former basketball star and model are happy with the arrival of their two new babies, and had previously done a good job of hiding the fact that they were expecting twins.
