According to CNN on Thursday, December 29, 2011, Jordan‘s publicist, Estee R. Portnoy, confirmed the Jordan-Prieto engagement to them but no wedding date has been set yet.

As noted in reports, Michael Jordan has been dating Prieto, 32, a Cuban-American model, for about three years. The couple is being seen together publicly in major golf events.

Jordan, 48, who is being considered as the greatest NBA player of all time, retired from basketball in 1993 but played again in 2005. He retired for the second time on January 13, 1999.

However, Jordan decided to play again in 2001 but this time for Washington Wizards and played his last NBA game in 2003 at the age of 40.

Michael Jordan was once married to Juanita Vanoy in September 1989 in whom he had two sons, Jeffrey Michael, 23, Marcus James, 21, and a daughter, Jasmine, 19; but the couple divorced formally after 17 years of marriage.

Jordan and Vanoy filed for divorce in January 2002, citing irreconcilable differences, but reconciled shortly thereafter. They eventually divorced in 2006 and Juanita reportedly received a $168 million.

Jordan, 6′ 6″, led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships and has been a major endorser of Nike shoes; and became a Charlotte Bobcats majority owner in 2010.
