Ysabel Jordan Biography
Ysabel Jordan is an American celebrity kid. She is one of the twin daughters of famous celebrity couple Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto. Her father, also known by his initials, “MJ,” is an accomplished American former professional basketball player. He is the main owner and the chairman of the American professional basketball team ‘Charlotte Hornets’ of the ‘National Basketball Association’ (NBA). Ysabel’s mother has made her mark in the entertainment industry as a famous Cuban–American model. Ysabel and her twin sister, Victoria, shot to fame even before they were born, soon after their parents announced that they were expecting their first child together. Although her parents wish to raise the twins away from the spotlight and the paparazzi, Ysabel and Victoria have remained a subject of attention for both the media and the fans of Jordan and Prieto. The names of the twins were profiled in the ‘Celebrity Babies’ section of ‘People’ magazine.
- Ysabel hit the headlines of several tabloids and earned the interest of millions even before her birth. This is because her father, Michael Jordan, is a celebrated former professional basketball player. Jordan is regarded as one of the greatest basketball players in history and has achieved several individual feats in his basketball career. He was made a member of the ‘FIBA Hall of Fame’ in 2015. He is considered the first billionaire player in ‘NBA’ history and the third-richest African–American. Thus, when he and his second wife, Yvette Prieto, announced on November 30, 2013, that they were pregnant with their first child, it was quite obvious that the child would attract attention from both the media and his fans across the world. However, at that time, the public and the media did not know that the couple was expecting twins. When Jordan and Prieto welcomed Ysabel and her identical twin, Victoria, to the world, it was a surprise for all. Ysabel’s name was chosen by her parents. The name means “gift from God” in Spanish and “devoted to God” in Latin. The word “Ysabel” is also similar to a word in Italian language that means “consecrated to God.” Born into fame, Ysabel and Victoria had their names profiled by the popular American weekly magazine ‘People’ in its ‘Celebrity Babies’ section in February 2014.
- Ysabel and her identical twin, Victoria, were born on February 9, 2014. Ysabel is of American descent from her father’s side and Cuban descent from her mother’s side. Her parents, Jordan and Prieto, met while dancing at a club in 2007 and were in a long-term relationship before Jordan proposed to Prieto on Christmas 2011. The two married at the ‘Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church’ on April 27, 2013. Ysabel’s mother is a Cuban model who has modeled for American fashion designer Alexander Wang. Prieto has also featured as herself in the documentary ‘Cuba: An Island Apart.’ As her parents prefer not to divulge much about the whereabouts of the twins and try to keep them out of the limelight, not much is known about Ysabel and her twin sister.
- Ysabel has two half-brothers, Jeffrey and Marcus, and a half-sister, Jasmine, through her father’s first marriage to Juanita Vanoy. Jeffrey is a former basketball player. He has played for the ‘University of Illinois’s ‘Illinois Fighting Illini’ and the ‘University of Central Florida (UCF) Knights.’ Marcus, too, was a college basketball player and has played for the ‘UCF Knights’ men's basketball team. In May 2019, Ysabel became an aunt when her half-sister, Jasmine, and the latter’s husband, American professional basketball player Rakeem Christmas, had a son.
