Former NBA professional Michael Jordan got engaged to his girlfriend, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, his rep Estee Portnoy confirmed to the Associated Press.

Jordan and the 32-year-old model had been dating for three years before the basketball player proposed over the Christmas weekend. A wedding date has not yet been set.

This will be Jordan's second marriage. The 48-year-old athlete, who is the majority owner of the Charlotte, North Carolina Bobcats, was previously married to Juanita Vanoy between 1989 and 2006. They have three children, Jeffrey Michael, 23, Marcus James, 21, and Jasmine, 19.

The NBA website refers to Jordan as "the greatest basketball player of all time." He played for the Chicago Bulls between 1984 and 1998 and joined the Washington Wizards from 2001 to 2003.

Jordan also appeared in the 1996 live action/animated movie "Space Jam," opposite Bugs Bunny.
