Michael Jordan Engaged

NBA legend Michael Jordan is reportedly engaged to longtime girlfriend and Cuban-born model Yvette Prieto. A spokeswoman confirmed the news that Jordan popped the question on Christmas Day. Prieto is 32 years old, while Jordan is 48. The couple has been dating for more than three years.

If you grew up in Chicago and faithfully followed the Chicago Bulls, you'll always love Michael Jordan. Folks have been heard saying "I want to be like Mike" as they remember the spectacular performances he gave his fans. He kept the championship rings and the big bucks, but the fans got to keep the thrills and excitment of every winning game. I can still hear the all of Chicago bragging on "Da Bulls" and its super star.

Jordan is the current owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, and can often be seen on the sideline of Bobcats games with Prieto. There is no announcement for a wedding date.

This would be Jordan's second marriage. He was married for 17 years to Juanita Jordan. The couple divorced in 2006 and settled for a reported amount of $168 million. They have two sons, Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James, and a daughter, Jasmine.
