We recently found out that basketball idol Michael Jordan, 50, and his young wife, 35-year-old Yvette Prieto, were expecting their first kid together. The celebrity couple now has even more baby news: they’re expecting twins, two identical girls, to be exact. That means that Jordan will soon be a father of five—he already has three grown kids with his first wife.
Jordan and Prieto married in April 2012 after five years of dating. The celebrity couple’s lavish ceremony topped the list of being one of the most over-the-top events of the year, with 500 guests in attendance for the ceremony, and another 1,500 for the reception. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted,” said an insider.
It’s not like Jordan can’t afford to give his wife whatever she wants—he’s still estimated to be worth a whopping $650.0 million. So, there’s no doubt that his new baby girls will also have nothing but the very best when they arrive in April 2014.
