Although she is of Cuba origin, Prieto is an American citizen as well; having spent many years in the States. Detailed information about her parents and family background is yet to be revealed for public consumption and it is not known what her childhood was like as the model is yet to open up about her younger days.

Prieto is a college graduate as well as a business-minded person. She holds a Bachelors’s degree in Business Management from a reputable institution of higher learning in the US. Prior to launching her modeling career, she worked in a slew of companies including Aqua Management, Beet the LBS, and at her father’s company (the name of the company is not known).

According to multiple sources, Yvette decided to pursue a career in modeling because she was unsatisfied with the way things were at her father’s firm and since she became a model, she has worked with several brands, did slews of commercials, photoshoots, and also modeled for elite American fashion designer, Alexander Wang. The Cuba-American superstar is 168 centimeters tall which is not bad for a model.

Apart from her modeling career, Jordan’s wife has also shown a keen interest in politics over the years. She was previously affiliated to the Republican Party but later switched affiliations to the Independents. Her personal net worth is estimated at $1.5 million while the value of her husband’s assets is currently estimated at $1.9 billion.

Fast Facts About Her Family and Marriage To Michael Jordan

Yvette Prieto is blessed with a beautiful family that comprises her husband Michael Jordan and lovely twin daughters. The model met Michael for the first time in the year 2008 at a nightclub in Miami. After seeing each other for some time, things became very serious between them which led to them moving in together in a Kendal, Florida-based 5,500 sq. ft, 3 bedroom mansion which they bought for an estimated $300,000.

Jordan proposed to Yvette during the Christmas of 2011 and subsequently took her to the altar at Episcopal church Bethesda-by-the Sea in the month of April 2013, when they exchanged their marital vows in the presence of 500 guests including their families, friends, and a slew of celebrities like Usher and Robin Thicke. Prieto, who is 15 years younger than Jordan, wore a sheath-style custom-made gown created by J’Aton Couture on her big day while their guests were entertained at a Jupiter, Florida-based golf-course community called the Bears Club.

According to reports, Michael and his second wife filed for their marriage license at the courthouse in Palm Beach County, Florida and also signed a prenuptial agreement to avoid the reoccurrence of a huge divorce payout.

Prieto Yvette and her husband are parents to two beautiful identical twin girls named Victoria and Ysabel. They were born in the month of February 2014 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Since after their birth, their parents have done a good job keeping them away from the media so there is no available information about how they are fairing.

Prieto is also the stepmom to Jordan’s three adult children (Jasmine Mickael Jordan, Jeffrey Michael Jordan, Marcus Jordan) from his first marriage to model-turned-real estate-agent Juanita Vanoy. Micahel and Vanoy divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage. The divorce was labeled one of the most expensive in American history as it cost the legendary basketball player over $150 million, a payout that pushed Juanita’s net worth to $170 million.

Prior to her marriage to Jordan, Yvette previously dated Spanish-Filipino singer Julio Iglesias Jr., the elder brother of celebrated singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias.
