It seems like love was in the air this Holiday Season. Chicago’s former Bull and NBA superstar joins a list of others popping the question this year. Michael Jordan proposed to his long-time girlfriend, model Yvette Prieto, on Christmas day. After dating for 3 years, looks like Jordan now 48-years-old, figured it was time to settle down.
Many remember his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy back in 1989; but after their divorce in 2006 his love life was more discreet. It probably is a good time for him to tie the knot, his three children are now young adults and likely need little financial support.
It would not be surprising if he decides to get a prenup, especially after hearing about the lack of one by Kobe Bryant, who stands to lose $75 million in the settlement. I know it’s not good to think “divorce” before you’re even married, but better safe than sorry!
MJ joins other celebrities getting engaged over the holidays including; country singer Wynonna Judd, actor Matthew McConaughey, and singer John Legend. With all these upcoming weddings maybe it will push our low rate of marriage in the U.S. from 50% to 50.1%!
