Having met Prieto more than six years ago, Jordan, who turns 51 on Monday, married the former Cuban-American model on April 27 of last year in Palm Beach, Fla. The reception took place at a private golf club in Jupiter, Fla., designed by Jack Nicklaus. Jordan owns a home near the course, the AP noted.
Jordon already has three children – Jeffrey, 24, Marcus James, 22, and Jasmine, 19, — from his previous marriage with Juanita Venoy. The couple divorced in 2006.
The 50-year-old basketball legend is considered by many to be the greatest who ever played the game having won six NBA Championships with the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s as well as five Most Valuable Player Awards, ten All-NBA First Team designations, and nine All-Defensive First Team honors among many other accolades during his nearly 20 year career.
Having retired from the NBA in 2003, Jordon remains one of the most sought-after promoters in sports history courtesy of various endorsement deals with the likes of Nike, Gatorade, Hanes and others which in 2012 earned him approximately $80 million, Forbes reported. Jordan
has an estimated net worth of $650 million due largely to such endorsement deals over the years.

The former NBA great is also the majority owner of the professional basketball team the Charlotte Bobcats, which thus far this year is having a less than stellar season with a current record of 23 wins and 29 losses as of Tuesday night.
Jordan also made news in December when he failed to sell his $21 million 56,000-square-foot home
in the upscale Chicago suburb of Highland Park, Ill., after having already lowered the initial asking price by $8 million dollars since it was first listed nearly two years earlier.
