Michael Jordan Is Engaged To Longtime Model Girlfriend

Congratulations are in order for your favorite 90s basketball player: Over the holidays, Michael Jordan asked his longtime model girlfriend Yvette Prieto to marry him, and she said yes!

Page Six reports that like the rest of America’s recently engaged couples, Jordan and Prieto got engaged on Christmas Day. No word yet on when the two plan to actually tie the knot — or what the engagement ring looks like — but they’ve been dating for years now, so we’re sure whenever it happens it’ll be a lovely event.

Jordan, of course, is known for his long stint with the Chicago Bulls and his extensive work with Nike (and that awful half-animated movie with the Looney Tunes), but Prieto is kinda famous in her own right. She’s apparently modeled for Alexander Wang and was seen hanging out with fashion-world teen obsession Peter Brant Jr. at the tents in September.

The 32-year-old model an the 48-year-old sports mogul have been dating since 2008 and living together in Florida since 2009. And we hope their marriage goes better than Jordan’s marriage to his first wife, Juanita Vanoy. The two divorced in 2006 after having three kids and 17-years together — and Vanoy got a huge $168 million settlement. We hate to squash the romance out of this happy news, but maybe this time Jordan will have his legal team put together a prenup.
