The greatest player in basketball history is set to become a grandfather.

Jasmine Jordan, the 26-year-old daughter of former NBA star Michael Jordan, announced on Christmas Day that she's pregnant.

The child of the Chicago Bulls' legend is welcoming her first child into the world with former Syracuse standout Rakeem Christmas.

The couple announced earlier this year that they were engaged to be married.

Syracuse.com had more on the happy couple:

Jasmine is the daughter of Michael Jordan, widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time and currently the owner of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. Jasmine, like Christmas, attended Syracuse University; she co-headlined SU’s Orange Madness in 2012 with Scoop Jardine and graduated with a degree in sports management.

Christmas was a starter on the Syracuse team that reached the 2013 Final Four. As a senior in 2015, he led the Orange in scoring (17.5 points per game) and rebounding (9.1 per game). Christmas played two seasons in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers and most recently played pro ball for the New Zealand Breakers of the National Basketball League (NBL).

Congrats to Jasmine, Rakeem and soon-to-be-grandpa MJ!
