Jordan met Prieto in 2008 after he had divorced his first wife, Juanita Vanoy, in 2006. Reportedly the two felt instant chemistry when they met at a nightclub.
Their relationship moved quickly; by 2010, they were living together and engaged the following year. The couple was married in 2013 in a lavish wedding.
For her nuptials, Prieto wore a French silk J'Aton Couture mermaid style dress that was detailed with lace and embellished with Swarovski crystals.
In 2014 they welcomed twin daughters Ysabel and Victoria. At the time, Jordan was 50-years old, and Prieto was 35-years-old. A representative for the couple sent a statement to US Weekly about their daughter's birth saying:
"Yvette Jordan and the babies are doing well and the family is overjoyed at their arrival."
"I told my wife I wasn't gonna [cry] because I didn't want to see that [meme] for the next three or four years."
Before meeting him, Prieto was already accustomed to dating a celebrity. Reportedly, she dated Enrique Iglesias' older brother, Julio Iglesias Jr in the early 2000s.
