Michael Jordan can now field a full basketball team of offspring.

The Hall of Famer's wife, Yvette, gave birth to twin girls Sunday, EOnline.com reported Tuesday.

According to the website, Jordan's manager told E! News: "Michael and Yvette Jordan are thrilled to announce that their identical twin daughters, Victoria and Ysabel, were born Sunday, February 9, 2014 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Yvette and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival."

Michael Jordan, who will turn 51 on Feb. 17, married the former Yvette Prieto, 34, in Palm Beach, Fla., last August. The basketball superstar had two sons, Jeffrey and Marcus, and a daughter, Jasmine, with his then-wife Juanita. Michael and Juanita Jordan divorced in December 2006.

A six-time NBA champion and five-time league Most Valuable Player, Jordan is currently the owner and chief of basketball operations for the Charlotte Bobcats.
