Michael Jordan enjoys summer getaway in Italy with wife Yvette Prieto and twin daughters

Michael Jordan and his family are enjoying a holiday abroad.

The NBA legend, 60, was recently photographed taking a boat tour off the coast of Sicily with his wife, Yvette Prieto, and their 9-year-old twin daughters.

Jordan paired his short-sleeve button-up with a white baseball cap and cargo shorts.

The Italy sighting comes on the heels of a recent date night in Nashville, where Jordan and Prieto were seen socializing around the NASCAR Ally 400 race weekend.

Jordan met Prieto, a model who was born in Cuba, at a nightclub in 2008

The couple wed in 2013, and their daughters, Ysabel and Victoria, arrived the following year.

Jordan has three other children from his previous marriage to Juanita Vanoy: Jeffrey, 34, Marcus, 32, and Jasmine, 30.

Marcus is dating Larsa Pippen, the ex-wife of Jordan’s former Bulls teammate, Scottie Pippen.

Last month, Jordan — a five-time league MVP — agreed to sell his majority stake in the Hornets to a group led by financiers Gabe Plotkin and Rick Schnall at a reported valuation of approximately $3 billion.

Jordan will reportedly maintain a minority stake in the franchise.

“In the same way that it’s wonderful that one of our greatest, Michael Jordan, could become the principal governor of a team, he has the absolute right to sell at the same time,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in June during the NBA Finals.

“Values have gone up a lot since he bought that team, so that is his decision.”

Jordan had owned the team for 13 seasons.

The Hornets finished the 2022 season at 27-55 and did not make the playoffs.

The team did not win a playoff round during Jordan’s time as owner and missed the playoffs for seven straight years (although they did make the play-in tournament in 2022).

With the second overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, the Hornets selected Brandon Miller out of Alabama over Scoot Henderson, who forewent college to play for the G League Unite last season.

Jordan won six championships with the Bulls in the 1990s and is widely regarded as either the best or second-best NBA player of all time.
