Congrats to the ever-growing family!
Original story (11/30/13): Time to bust out the baby Air Jordans, because hoops star Michael Jordan and his wife, Yvette Prieto have a little one on the way!
Us Weekly reports that Michael and Yvette are expecting their first child together after seven months of marriage. Michael has three children — basketball player Jeffrey, 25, Marcus, 22, and Jasmine, 20 — from his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy, whom he divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage.
After meeting at a Miami nightclub in 2008, Michael, 50, finally popped the question to model Yvette, 35, on Christmas Eve 2011.
The basketball legend, 50, and Yvette, 35, wed on April 27 in Palm Beach, Florida at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in front of a crowd of 500 family and friends. Later that day, another 1000 guests including Usher, Robin Thicke, Spike Lee, Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn, Patrick Ewing, and Michael’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen, joined the party at the Bear’s Club in nearby Jupiter.
While there’s no word yet on Yvette’s due date or the gender of the baby, we’re guessing it’s a safe bet to start looking for an extra-long crib and some number 23 onesies now.
