Michael Jordan and his second wife, Yvette, welcomed the birth of identical twin daughters in Florida on Sunday.

The Associated Press reported Tuesday that Estee Portnoy, Jordan’s spokeswoman, confirmed the Feb. 9 births of Victoria and Ysabel.

“Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival,” Portnoy said in a statement.

Jordan and Yvette Prieto, a former model, dated for a number of years before getting engaged in December 2011. They were married in an elaborate Florida wedding ceremony back in April 2013 and word of Yvette’s pregnancy first surfaced last November.

The children are Jordan’s fourth and fifth. The Bulls legend divorced his first wife, Juanita, in 2006 after 17 years of marriage. They have three children — Jeffrey (25), Marcus (23) and Jasmine (21) — together. Both Jeffrey and Marcus played college basketball and Jasmine is currently in college.

After a Hall of Fame career that included six championships with the Bulls in the 1990s, Jordan retired from basketball in 2003, becoming majority owner of the Bobcats in 2010.

Jordan, 50, had relocated to Florida with Yvette, 35, in recent years. Back in October, he decided tried to auction off his Chicago-area mansion after it failed to fetch its original $29 million asking price. The house did not receive any bids that met the auction’s $13 million reserve price.

“My kids are grown now and I don’t need a large house in Chicago,” Jordan told the Wall Street Journal at the time. “It was time for some warmer weather down at my new home in Florida.”

Once you go white--you don't have to fight all night.

Sisters HATE it when ANY black dude jumps the fence. I predict bitterness that will last over a decade. Congratulations Yvette. I hope you don't expect Mike to be any more faighful than any other professional athlete. Michael is no Grant Hill when it comes to fidelity.

@outlander I doubt his first wife really cared about him, but it is possible. This women is a gold digger, so she doesn't really care. Any woman that would marry a Rich Well Known player is an idiot and gold digger.

@outlander  Well Mike was with a "Sister" for 17 years and look now she is a multimillionaire thanks to Mike, it don't really matter if he married a black chick, white chick or any other race if she has the traditional american women values like how majority of american women are regardless of race marrying them is a huge gamble and now he has two kids with her and now she's just one court visit away from seeing her worth TRIPLE!!!!

@MPOWELL0405 @outlanderSome women like to pretend women like this are looking for a faithful man, which is comical at best. If she was looking for a good faithful man she would not have married a famous playboy. She was looking for a paycheck. Cold in the Heart, with morals that don't exist! BTW he is also an idiot, but we all know that. 


Michael Jordan is my favorite Basketball Player, but as far as a person I truly don't understand why women reduce themselves down to being a notch, then you see stories like this and remember they are just playing the lottery!
