Michael Jordan was an ex American basketball player. He was the powerhouse behind the Chicago Bulls team. Although Michael's professional life is very well known, his personal and love life is a little secret. There are probably some things you may likely not know about Jordan's current wife Yvette Prieto. This article will tell you more about her.

Michael's first wife Juanita Vanoy gave him three celebrity offsprings, but Michael and Juanita's relationship ended in 2006. After splitting from Juanita, Michael met Yvette Prieto, a former model living in Miami, Florida. Michael and Yvette are now married but they keep their relationship super private.

Like they say, nothing is hidden under the sun. So what are some of the things we know about Yvette Prieto?

Yvette Prieto was born on March 26, 1979 in Cuba, but she grew up in Miami Florida which is the perfect place to celebrate her Cuban Heritage. In Miami, she worked as a model for designers like Alexander Wang. Given her stature of five 5ft 6, she probably did a lot of print jobs as opposed to runway work.

Prior to her meeting Jordan, Yvette was used to the spotlight. She dated Enrique Iglesia's brother Julio Iglesias Jr. Julio certainly wasn't as famous as his brother, but he did find some success with music and television work. Being a model at the time, Yvette was assumed to be the perfect companion. But their relationship did not last.

In 2007, just one year after divorcing Juanita Vanoy, Michael met Prieto while visiting a Miami nightclub. Given how they met, it's obvious that Michael was initially attracted to Yvette's outer beauty. However, considering how long they've lasted for over 13 years, he's someone who appreciates her incredible character as well.

Yvette and Michael's 2013 wedding was super lavish. They had a palm beach wedding ceremony which featured a beautifully decorated 40 thousand square foot tent for dancing, food and fun. Moreover, Robin Thicke and Usher were wedding singers.

When Michael and Yvette were wedded in 2013, Yvette was 34 years old and Michael was her first husband. So Yvette was second in line to Juanita Vanoy (Michael's first wife), and the mother of three of his children. Luckily for Yvette Prieto, Michael and Juanita are pretty chill co-parents. They don't have much drama.

Meanwhile, Yvette's ex Julio Iglesias Jr has only great things to say about his former partner. Apparently she's beautiful inside and out and has a big heart. It's rare for someone to speak kindly about his or her ex. Michael is surely a lucky man. One of the things Michael Jordan appreciates about his wife is her love for basketball.

Michael Jordan is a basketball legend, it only makes sense that he can't stay away from the game. He's the current owner of the Charlotte Hornets basketball team. Michael frequently watches basketball games and his wife regularly accompanied him to enjoy the game.
