NBA legend Michael Jordan's wife has given birth to twins, according to reports from the Associated Press cited by

Yvette Jordan, who has been married to the Chicago Bulls icon since April 2013, gave birth to identical twin girls Vicoria and Ysabel in Florida on Sunday.

Mother and children seem to be doing well, with Jordan's spokeswomen Estee Portnoy having made the joyous announcement public.

"Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival," she said.

Jordan is one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, having shot to global fame during his ludicrously successful stints with the Bulls.

The 50-year-old, who also played briefly for the Washington Wizards and even tried his hand at a career in professional baseball, won six NBA championships in the 90s and cemented his enduring legacy with five regular season MVP awards and six final MVPs.

14-time All-Star Jordan - who was only the third overall pick behind Hakeem 'The Dream' Olajuwon and Sam Bowie in the 1984 NBA draft - eventually retired from the sport in 2003 and is widely considered to be the best player ever to grace the court.
