Michael Jordan, 50, and His Younger Wife, Yvette Prieto, Welcome Twin Girls

Michael Jordan Welcome Twin GirlsAt the age of 50, Michael Jor­dan is offi­cially a father for the fourth (and tech­ni­cally the fifth) time. His younger wife, 35-year-old Yvette Pri­eto, gave birth to twins on Feb­ru­ary 9. The celebrity cou­ple wel­comed iden­ti­cal daugh­ters named Vic­to­ria and Ysabel. “Yvette Jor­dan and the babies are doing well and the fam­ily is over­joyed at their arrival,” said Jordan’s rep.

The celebrity cou­ple first started dat­ing back in 2008 and cel­e­brated their mar­riage five years later with a $10 mil­lion wed­ding recep­tion. Yvette Pri­eto, a for­mer model, is enter­ing moth­er­hood for the first time, but Michael Jor­dan already has three kids from his pre­vi­ous mar­riage to Juanita Vanoy. The old­est of his three kids is only 10 years younger than his wife.

Here’s another tid­bit to help put their age dif­fer­ence in per­spec­tive: Yvette Pri­eto was only ten years old when her famous hus­band helped the U.S. men’s bas­ket­ball team with the gold medal at the 1984 Sum­mer Olympics.

What do you think: Is 50 too old to still be hav­ing kids?
