NBA legend Michael Jordan and his wife Yvette Prieto are expecting their first child, according to reports from US Weekly and People.

Jordan and Prieto, a former model, dated for a number of years before getting engaged in December 2011. They were married in an elaborate Florida wedding ceremony back in April.

The child will be Jordan's fourth. The Hall of Fame Bulls guard divorced his first wife, Juanita, in 2006 after 17 years of marriage. They have three children -- Jeffrey (25), Marcus (22) and Jasmine (19) -- together. Both Jeffrey and Marcus played college basketball and Jasmine is currently in college.

After a Hall of Fame career that included six championships with the Bulls in the 1990s, Jordan retired from basketball in 2003, becoming majority owner of the Bobcats in 2010.

Jordan, 50, has relocated to Florida with Prieto, 34, in recent years. Back in October, he decided to auction off his Chicago-area mansion after it failed to fetch its original $29 million asking price.

“My kids are grown now and I don’t need a large house in Chicago,” Jordan told the Wall Street Journal at the time. “It was time for some warmer weather down at my new home in Florida.”
