Michael Jordan and Wife Welcome Twin Girls


Michael Jordan and Michael Prieto have twins

Congratulations to basketball legend Michael Jordan!  This past Sunday (Feb. 9), the 50 year old and his wife of one year, Yvette Prieto, welcomed identical twin girls into the world.

MJ, who turns 51 next week, married Yvette in Palm Beach last spring. The twins make a total of five children for the retired player, who has three children with ex-wife Juanita. Perhaps he should start a team of his own.

Jordan’s spokeswoman Estee Portnoy tell The Associated Press, “Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival.”

This is a very good month for the NBA superstar whose team, the Charlotte Bobcats, are currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and have a shot to make postseason finals for the first time since he took over as owner in 2010.
