It’s another Gossip Extra exclusive: A source close to Jordan tells me His Airness agreed to undergo a vasectomy reversal at his new wife’s urging!
Jordan, 50, married longtime gilfriend Yvette Prieto in a lavish ceremony at Bethesda-by-the-Sea, then celebrated with a giant party on the golf course of The Bears Club in Jupiter.
“That was part of the deal of them getting married,” said a source close to the Charlotte Bobcats, the NBA team owned by Jordan. “Yvette was pretty adamant about having children with Mike. He had the vasectomy as his first marriage ended.”
Officially, Jordan has three adult children with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy: Former University of Central Florida basketball players Jeffrey and Marcus Jordan, 24 and 22; and daughter Jasmine, a Syracuse University student.
According to doctors, reconnecting a man’s reproductive plumbing does not guarantee that he’ll be able to have more children. It does, however, increase the chances by 30 to 50 percent, depending on the time elapsed since the vasectomy.
Estee Portnoy, Jordan’s spokeswoman in D.C., denied he had a vasectomy, or reversal. But she wouldn’t comment on the retired ball player’s future plans when it comes to ninos.
