Michael Jordan Gets Engaged to His Miami Model Girlfriend

Michael Jordan's Charlotte Bobcats may have lost to the Miami Heat last night, but MJ has officially won something else that's hot and from Miami: the hand of Yvette Prieto. According to Charlotte news station WCNC, Jordan asked Prieto to marry him on Christmas Eve. Obviously, she said yes.


Jordan began dating Prieto, a Cuban-American model, sometime in 2008. The two have been spotted out in Miami through out their relationship, and back in 2009 Jordan plopped down $300,000 for a home in Kendall.

Jordan divorced his wife of 17 years, Juanita, back in 2006. Prieto meanwhile reportedly used to date Enrique Iglesias Jr.
