How Did Michael Jordan & Yvette Prieto Meet?

To regain something of a familiar structure in my life, I tuned into ESPN’s 10-part documentary The Last Dancewhich hit Netflix July 19. The limited series follows Michael Jordan’s time with the Chicago Bulls during its final championship season of 1997-98Since most of the programs I usually watch, like sporting events, are on hold, this series has been a lifeline after a long week of WFH life. Since the series focuses on the past, you can expect to not see any of Jordan’s present—director Jason Hehir planned it that way. “I wasn’t interested in the opinion of any wife or kids in this,” said Hehir to The Athletic’s Richard Deitsch. “We had the storytellers we wanted, and I felt like we had the story covered from every angle. “

While I totally respect his decision, I’m also very nosy! Here’s everything you need to know about Jordan’s wife Yvette Prieto.

Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto met in a nightclub in 2007.

Before meeting Jordan, Prieto was a Cuban model who grew up in Miami; she’s worked for designers like Alexander Wang. Before she met Jordan, Prieto dated the brother of singer Enrique Iglesias, Julio Iglesias Jr., according to The Bleacher Report.

Like many couples in the 21st century, there’s something about finding love under multicolor techno lights, and this is exactly what happened to Jordan and Prieto. In 2009, they moved in together in a 5,500-square-foot home in Miami. They announced their engagement in 2011.
