Who is Yvette Prieto? Michael Jordan Marries Longtime Love

Yvette Prieto is by Michael Jordan's side in a bold red strapless gown, attending the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in 2009.

Yvette and Michael Jordan are sporty-chic in the American colors at The President's Cup Golf Tournament's closing ceremonies in 2009.

Prieto and Jordan are all dolled up, and Yvette keeps it fun and flirty in this ruffled skirt.

Yvette stands out in yellow at the 2012 Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational.

Talk about confidence! Only a woman who knows how gorgeous she is can pull off this all-over leopard print dress.  We love that Yvette kept her hair and accessories simple, key to pulling off such a busy dress.

The beautiful duo laugh at the Jordan's annual event in 2012, clearly a very happy couple.

A white maxi dress paired with flat sandals is perfect for a holiday in Italy.

Yvette looks chic and casual while window-shopping in Monaco. We love the basic white tee and jeans paired with wedges.

We love a girl in classic Chanel bag, and Yvette rocks it well.


We hear wedding bells! On April 27, 2013, Michael Jordan and longtime fiancée Yvette Prieto were married in Palm Beach, Florida.

Now, you may be asking yourself: Who is this lovely lady who has stolen the heart of the basketball icon? Prieto is a 33-year-old Cuban-American woman, and a native of Miami. She is a model who has posed for designers such as Alexander Wang, and studied business in college before working for her father.

She used to date Julio Iglesias, Enrique's older brother, who described her as "loving," "simple" and a "very good person."

Prieto and Jordan announced their engagement in December, 2011, after beginning to date in 2008, two years after Jordan's divorce from his former wife. They've been living together since 2009.

We send our congratulations to the couple, and wish them the best. In honor of their recent nuptials, we took a look at the happy couple over the past few years. Click through the gallery above to see for yourself!
