yvette prieto michael jordan getty Yvette Prieto, Michael Jordan's new fiancee, used to date Julio Iglesias Jr.Michael Jordan announced Thursday (Dec. 29) that he had asked girlfriend Yvette Prieto to marry him and she said yes. But just who is this stunning beauty?

Prieto, 33, is a Cuban-American model who has previously been romantically linked to Julio Iglesias Jr., older brother to Enrique Iglesias and obviously son of singer Julio Iglesias.

Julio Jr. said of Prieto in a 2003 story in Hola! magazine (translated by Google), “I can count on one hand the girls I have dated seriously. Yvette is the third and … the third time’s the charm. She’s a fantastic girl and I like her. Aside from her beauty, which is obvious, she is loving, simple and very good person.”

Hola! also reports that Prieto studied business and worked for her father’s company before jumping over to modeling. She began doing commercials and soon moved over to bikini shots for calendars.

Prieto and Jordan reside in Florida and have been together for three years. One thing’s for sure – he better have a prenup. No offense to Prieto, but Jordan was taken to the cleaners when he and first wife Juanita divorced in 2006.
