The Untold Truth Of Michael Jordan’s Kids


Published -

Hardcore sports fans tend to know plenty of facts about their favorite athletes.

However, there happens to be a fair share of untold truths about Michael Jordan that would surely surprise you, including the fact that the NBA legend has five kids.

Michael Jordan became a father when his first son, Jeffrey Jordan, was born in November 1988. However, when the athlete initially found out about the child, he wasn’t exactly eager to accept his position as a parent. In fact, the baby’s mother, Juanita Vanoy – who eventually became Jordan’s wife, and a mom to two more children with him – had to get lawyers involved before the star would acknowledge his responsibilities.

Although the pair was already engaged to be married, their romance had cooled, and the process had stalled. Juanita hired attorney Michael Minton in July of that same year.

Minton described the situation to The Washington Post in 2002, saying,

“She told me she was pregnant, unwed, and that the father of the child was Michael Jordan. She felt she could not get Michael’s attention or cooperation or response without the retention of a legal representative…He was obviously not being responsive to her needs or the needs of the unborn child. It’s not something that if you ignore it, it will go away.”

That’s what Michael found out when he faced what could potentially be a very public paternity suit, which apparently prompted him to acknowledge that the baby was his. Although Michael got his own team of lawyers involved, he reportedly admitted paternity within a few months.
