Who is Ysabel Jordan?
Ysabel Jordan was born on 9 February 2014, in the USA, and is best known for being the daughter of National Basketball Association (NBA) icon Michael Jordan and his second wife Yvette Prieto. She was born as twins alongside her sister Victoria – the two are the first children from her father’s second marriage.
The Wealth of Ysabel Jordan
How rich is Ysabel Jordan? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is potentially over $1 million through the wealth of her father. Michael Jordan has an estimated net worth of over $1.65 billion, earned through success in basketball and business. As she grows up, it is expected that her wealth may increase.
In 2013, Ysabel’s parents announced that they were expecting, though they didn’t know yet that they were going to have twins. The couple were followed constantly by the media over the last few months of her pregnancy, so they decided that they should implement a lifestyle that would keep them away from any publicity. This is so that they could raise their kids without much interference from the media and public in general.
Eventually, she was born alongside her twin sister Victoria, and they are identical twins. The name Ysabel means Devoted to God and in Italian Consecrated to God. Their father is NBA icon and legend Michael Jordan while their mother is model Yvette Prieto who is originally from Cuba. They would join their fathers’ three children from his first marriage, all of whom were already in their 20s by the time the twins were born. Michael’s first marriage was to Juanita Vanoy, and they were married for 17 years before divorcing in 2006.
Michael Jordan or MJ is best known for his career in the (NBA) in which he played mostly for the Chicago Bulls. He is named the greatest basketball player of his time, and one of the greatest athletes in his generation. He is considered the reason why the NBA became highly popular from the 1980s to the 1990s. He was initially drafted as the third overall pick by the Chicago Bulls, and entertained crowds especially with his leaping and shooting ability.
He would go on to win three titles with the Bulls from 1991 to 1993, but he abruptly retired to try his hand at minor league baseball. However, he returned in 1995, and would help the Bulls win three championships once more. He also helped set the record for 72 regular season wins during the 1995 to 1996 NBA season. He holds numerous accolades and records within the NBA, and has also helped popularize numerous products. He fueled the success of the Nike Air Jordan sneakers and later created his own shoe line which sees him gain a reputed $100 million a year. He was also a part of the film “Space Jam”. He is currently the part-owner and head of basketball operations for the Charlotte Bobcats, which later helped him to become the first billionaire in NBA history.
Second Marriage and Future Possibilities
Jordan had three children from his first marriage, which almost ended in divorce in 2002 before the couple reconciled. However, the couple would finalize a divorce in 2006 and his first wife would gain $168 million as a part of the settlement. Eventually he started a relationship with model Yvette Prieto, who is mostly known for her work with Alexander Wang, and is one of the more popular models from Cuba.
Many are speculating on whether or not the twins would follow the footsteps of their father or their mother. Jordan’s other children have tried their hand at collegiate basketball, but their skills never really transitioned to a professional level. The twins could also follow the footsteps of their mother, especially if they acquire desirable physical attributes which are common in most high profile models. For now, they enjoy the wealth that their father has accrued from his playing career, endorsements, as well as his ownership of the Charlotte Hornets. Their father also owns an automotive group which held several dealerships throughout the years.
Away from the Spotlight
Ysabel and her sister Victoria have remained away from the spotlight, as their parent’s desire is for them is to grow up without too much media attention. Their decision has proved successful as the twins have mainly been raised away from the limelight, and many were surprised when a photo of them was released showing them at four years old. It is likely that later on they will inherit a portion of wealth from their father, due to his many businesses and sources of income. Many sources are also commenting that they are already showing qualities that could lead to modelling at a young age.
