Legendary NBA star Michael Jordan is a happily married man.

The former Chicago Bulls star turned Charlotte Hornets and NASCAR team owner married his current wife, Yvette Prieto, back in 2013.

However, that was not Jordan's first marriage.

Michael Jordan, who won six championships over the course of his professional career, was previously married to Juanita Jordan.

The legendary Chicago Bulls star and his former wife, Juanita, were married from 1989 until 2006. They began dating in 1984, at the start of Jordan's professional career.

Michael and Juanita had three children together during their marriage.

Michael and Juanita were married for nearly two decades, though their public relationship had some rocky moments at times. Juanita initially filed for divorce back in 2002, though the couple was able to reconcile at the time.

Ultimately, though, Michael and Juanita ended up getting divorced a couple of years later.
