It was revealed earlier this month that NBA legend Michael Jordan and wife Yvette Preito were expecting their first child together, but reports now claim their joy will be doubled by the birth of twins.

Jordan and Prieto, who married earlier this year, are having identical twin girls, according to TMZ, although it has not been made public when the Cuban-American model's due date is.

The Chicago Bulls icon, who retired 10 years ago, married Preito - 16 years his junior - in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach back in April, with the bash attended by the likes of Tiger Woods, Usher and Robin Thicke.

Jordan and Prieto have been together for five years with the 34-year-old his second wife, having split from Juanita Vanoy in 2006. Vanoy received a divorce settlement of $168 million.

The couple had three children during his 17-year marriage to Vanoy; sons Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19.

Jordan, meanwhile, failed to sell his famous Highland Park mansion when it was made available at auction on Tuesday, with no bidder willing to meet the $13 million reserve price.
