It’s one of the oldest raps, and Michael Jordan is living it. First comes love, then comes marriage, and then comes Michael Jordan and his new wife Yvette Prieto and the baby carriage.
Yep, at age 50, His Airness Michael Jordan is going to be a dad again. No. 23 and Prieto, 34, are expecting their first child together, reports Us Weekly. The couple were married in April after dating for five years.
Jordan has three kids from his previous marriage with Juanita Vanoy—25-year-old Jeffrey Michael Jordan, 22-year-old Marcus Jordan and 20-year-old Jasmine M. Jordan. Their 26-year marriage ended in divorce in 2006. Since several paternity suits have surfaced with people claiming Air Jordan as their father. Most of these lawsuits were later tossed out in court.
After winning six championships with the Chicago Bulls, Jordan joined the Washington Wizards for two seasons before retiring for his third time. He’d later become the first former professional basketball player to have a majority stake in a league franchise in 2010 taking over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Best of luck to the happy couple! — Charley Rogulewski
