Michael Jordan is a new dad again after all these years... x2!

The 51-year-old NBA superstar and his wife, Yvette Prieto Jordon, 35, welcomed identical twin girls last Sunday, February 9, in West Palm Beach, Florida. And the names are... Victoria and Ysabel.

“Yvette and the babies are doing well," the couple's rep, Estee Portnoy, said, "and the family is overjoyed at their arrival."

Victoria and Ysabel are the first children for Yvette, and the fourth and fifth for Michael, who's also dad to Jeffrey, 25, Marcus, 22, and Jasmine, 21, with former wife Juanita Vanoy.

Yvette and Michael started dating six years ago, got married last April and announced their pregnancy in November—they didn't, however, reveal they were having twins.


Michael actually turns 51 next week—something tells me it's going to be a busy birthday. Happy Birthday, Michael!

After a legendary run as an NBA star (five-time league MVP, 14-time All-Star, etc.), Michael is now the majority owner of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats.

Congrats to the family!
