In February 2014 Michael Jordans and his wife Yvette Prieto Jordan welcomed their twin daughters Victoria and Ysabel Jordan into the world. The twins were conceived in West Palm Beach, Florida, and they arrived exactly 10 months after the official engagement of Michael and Yvette after a six-year relationship sparked in a club in Miami.
Ysabel Jordan Twins
The Jordanian twin’s Victoria and Ysabel Jordan are very similar. Their parents publicly announced that they are expected in November 2013, although it was not revealed that they are expecting twins.
Since they have been together, the couple (Jordan and Yvette) had been victims of constant pressure from the paparazzi. The delivery of Ysabel and Victoria forced the couple to stay away from the media or any such publicity and to do their best to protect their children from the interference of the general public.
Ysabel – Name Meaning And Origin
The name Ysabel is associated with names like Isabel, Yzabel, and Elizabeth. In French, the name Ysabel means “dedicated to God”. It is also similar to the Italian version, which means “dedicated to God”.
Ysabel Jordan Father
There is no doubt that Ysabel’s father, Michael Jordan, has always been rated as the greatest basketball player of all time. Jordan, who is currently 1.98 m tall, was born on February 17, 1963, the same month as his twin daughters.
He is currently the owner of NBA team Charlotte Hornets. Prior to his retirement, Jordan had played 15 seasons in the NBA for the Chicago Bulls and the Washington Wizards. In September 1989, Jordan married his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, and they have a daughter and two sons together.
After filing for divorce twice, the couple finally made it official in December 2006, and Juanita Vanoy walked out of the settlement, which was then recorded as the largest celebrity settlement, with $168 million.
On Christmas 2011, Jordan proposed marriage to his current wife and mother of his twins, Yvette Prieto. Two years later, the engagement couple took her to the Bishop’s Church of Bethesday-by-the-Sea where they were married.

Although it is common for celebrity children to bring in money from sponsorship and other businesses at a young age, this is not the case because their parents have tried to protect them from the media and the constant paparazzi that accompany their celebrity status. As a result, Ysabel Jordan’s wealth currently depends on her father’s performance over the years.
Her father Michael Jordan is currently worth about $1.4 billion, earned through his basketball career, sponsorship deals, and other investments.
