Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto honeymooned in Greece just seven months ago, and now the two are expecting their first baby together. The couple wed in Palm Beach, Florida on April 27th in front of 300 friends and family members. Famous names like Robin Thicke, Spike Lee, Tiger Woods, Usher and Patrick Ewing graced the exclusive guest list.
Since the honeymoon ended, Jordan–who is 50, and Prieto, who is 34–have very clearly been getting down to business. A rep for Michael Jordan confirmed the pregnancy to Us Weekly.
It certainly didn’t take long for Twitter fans to start spreading the exciting news. Of course it sort of runs the gamut between genuine congratulations and a bit of sarcasm–but they’re spreading it just the same.
Michael Jordan is going to be dad again. The NBA legend’s new wife Yvette Prieto is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Michael Jordan has three children from his marriage to Juanita Venoy, which ended in 2006. They were married for 17 years and have two sons–Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, as well as a daughter, Jasmine, who is 19.
How do you suppose it will be for Michael Jordan to once again embrace parenthood at the age of 50–and more than 19 years after his most recent child was born? A lot has changed in 19 years–including the dad himself.
Congrats to Both Michael and wife Yvette Prieto on the their impending blessed event. Do you predict a 2014 line of Michael Jordan baby wear to hit stores in the very near future?
