Michael Jordan can forget about sleeping for a while.

Jordan’s wife, Yvette, gave birth to identical twin girls, named Victoria and Ysabel, on Sunday in West Palm Beach, Fla. Jordan, who will turn 51 on Monday, and his 35-year-old wife were married last April.

“Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well,” Jordan’s spokeswoman, Estee Portnoy, told the Associated Press, “and the family is overjoyed at their arrival.”

The children are the fourth and fifth for Jordan. He had two sons (Jeffrey Michael and Marcus James) and a daughter (Jasmine) with his ex-wife Juanita.
