Yvette Prieto is a former model who is most famed for being a spouse of legendary Michael Jordan. Being of Cuban descent, she grew up in Miami. Her parents are Carlos and Maria Prieto. Moreover, Yvette has brother Carlos who runs Sole Fly sneaker store.
Prieto studied business management and worked for her father’s company before launching her modeling career. Due to her petite height, she wasn’t a runway model but participated in commercials and photoshoots instead. Yvette even collaborated with designer Alexander Wang and appeared in the documentary Cuba: An Island Apart.
In the early 2000s, Yvette Prieto was romantically linked to Julio Iglesias Jr, a brother of pop star Enrique Iglesias. She got acquainted with Michael Jordan at a nightclub in 2007 and in 2009, they moved in. The athlete proposed on Christmas 2011. As a result, the lovebirds tied knots on April 27, 2013, at a lavish $10 million ceremony featuring Usher and Robin Thicke as wedding singers. In 2014, the spouses became parents to twin daughters Victoria and Ysabel. Besides, Yvette is a stepmom to Michael’s three kids from a previous marriage.
Despite their 16-year age gap, Prieto and Jordan love each other incredibly and seem to be very happy. As a supportive wife, Yvette accompanies Michael to various events as well as the games of Charlotte Hornets, the star’s basketball team.
A curious fact: like Jordan’s first wife, Juanita Vanoy, Prieto wasn’t featured in The Last Dance documentary. The thing is that director Jason Hehir didn’t think that their interviews were necessary as he concentrated on Jordan’s professional life.
