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.
