Michael Jordan, Wife Yvette Prieto Welcome Twin Daughters

NBA great Michael Jordan is a father again, of two healthy girls born to her Cuban-American wife Yvette Prieto.

A rep for Jordan confirmed the news in a statement to E! News: “Michael and Yvette Jordan are thrilled to announce that their identical twin daughters, Victoria and Ysabel, were born Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014 in West Palm Beach, Florida.”

The rep said Prieto and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed with their arrival.

The 51-year-old former basketball star and the 35-year-old model announced in December they were expecting. The girls are the first for Prieto and the fourth and fifth for the former Chicago Bulls star.

Jordan has three grown children – sons Jeffery Michael, Marcus James and daughter Jasmine – with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy.

Jordan, who bought a majority stake in the Charlotte Bobcats in 2010, and Prieto, who once dated Julio Iglesias Jr., met at a Miami nightclub in 2008. Jordan proposed during Christmas 2011, and the couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in April in front of more than 500 guests at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida.

They invited another 1,500 friends to celebrate at the Bears Club in Jupiter, Florida, not far from Jordan's 38,000-square-foot home.
