Yvette Prieto & Michael Jordan Expecting First Child Together!

It’s more happy baby news! Basketball legend Michael Jordan and wife Yvette Prieto have confirmed to People that they are expecting their first baby together. 

The couple married in a lavish ceremony last April which was attended by 500 guests, followed by an even bigger reception with about 1,500 people in attendance. The sports star, 50, and the Cuban model, 34, originally met in a Miami club in 2008.

“He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted,” a source told People of the couple’s wedding. 

No details have been reveled yet about how far along Yvette is or the sex of the baby. The new arrival will have three siblings from Michael’s previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
