Jordan’s spokeswoman Estee Portnoy confirmed the twins’ birth with a statement through AP. “Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival,” Portnoy said.
Michael Jordan, who turns 51 next Monday, already has three children — two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine — all from his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy, whom he divorced in 2006.
The six-time NBA champion, 14-time All-Star and five-time league MVP and his new wife Yvette Prieto, a former model, met six years ago and got married last April in Palm Beach.
Congratulations to the Jordan family on their newest additions!
