Michael Jordan, 50, is expecting his first child with wife Yvette Prieto, the sport legend’s rep has confirmed to PEOPLE.
Jordan fans are not surprised at this news because of a report in Jose Lambiet’s Gossip Extra that broke the news of his surgery to reverse a vasectomy.
Michael and Yvette met at a Miami club in 2008 and tied the knot last April at a ceremony in Palm Beach, Fla., attended by 500 guests.
Later, about 1,500 joined the couple at a lavish reception at a nearby golf-course community in Jupiter, where Jordan owns a 38,000-square-foot home. Robin Thicke and Usher were among the star-studded performers at the fête.
Jordan has three adult children from an earlier marriage, two boys and a girl.
