Michael Jordan's Kids Celebrate Their Brother Marcus' Birthday with Rarely-Seen Family Photos
Michael Jordan's children Jeffrey and Jasmine took turns to wish their brother Marcus a happy birthday as the latter celebrated his 30th birthday.
Jeffrey Jordan and Jasmine Jordan paid tribute to their brother Marcus as he celebrated turning 30 on Thursday. In her post, Jasmine shared a picture that showed her and Marcus as little kids.
In the snapshot, Jasmine was riding a toy car on a wide road clad in a white top and sky-blue pants while Marcus walked beside her. He wore a black top and jean shorts, which he matched with white-and-black sneakers.
In the caption to her post, Jasmine wished Marcus a happy 30th birthday, adding that she has been rolling with him since they were kids and that she loves him.
Marcus's older brother, Jeffrey, shared several pictures from their childhood, showing their close bond. The first photo showed Marcus looking at three of his father, Michael Jordan's NBA Championship trophies.
The second picture saw Jeffrey and Marcus all smiles as they posed, while the third snapshot featured them playing basketball. In the next photo, the look-alike brothers posed inside a car.
The last picture in Jeffrey's post was an image of him and Marcus posing on the latter's eleventh birthday. He captioned his post with birthday wishes for his brother.
Fans got to see the extent of the NBA icon's competitive nature in the docuseries, "The Last Dance"
Jeffrey, Marcus, and Jasmine are the oldest of Michael's five children. The legendary former basketballer shares the trio with his ex-wife, Juanita Vanoy. He and Vanoy were married from 1989 to 2006.
Michael is also a father to twin daughters, Victoria and Ysabel, whom he shares with his wife, Cuban model Yvette Prieto, with whom he tied the knot in 2013.
During his playing days, Michael was very competitive, a trait he passed on to his children. Marcus revealed that his father's competitive edge showed itself even when the former basketballer played pickup games with them.
Michael treated his kids the way he would treat any other player on the court, and his competitiveness sometimes resulted in Marcus or Jeffrey getting injured.
Fans got to see the extent of the NBA icon's competitive nature in the docuseries, "The Last Dance," which chronicled his last season in the NBA and with the Chicago Bulls.
The docuseries also provided Michael's children the chance to know more about their father as they were very young during his playing days and knew little about his fame.
Jasmine has previously revealed she had to Google her father as a child to understand why people were obsessed with him.
Besides his children, Michael is also a grandfather to a grandson, who Jasmine shares with her fiancé, Rakeem Christmas, who is also a basketball player.
