Congratulations to retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and his wife, model Hannah Jeter – the couple are expecting their first child together!
Hannah revealed the happy news in a post on The Players’ Tribune, where she explained, “Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future.”
She also revealed they’re having a girl, as evidenced by Derek holding an insane amount of pink balloons, with Hannah noting: “He already has a name in mind – he’s set on it. (We’ll see.) He’ll say when he calls me during the day: ‘So, how are you and so-and-so doing?’ ‘That’s not the name yet, sweetie.’ Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him.”
Hannah also looked forward to her wishes for their children, explaining: “Derek and I will want our children to understand that the lives they’ve been given are so fortunate, in so many ways. We’ll want them to learn to help others, and to care for others, and to give back to the world.”
She added, “We’ll let them know that they are strong and smart, and that they can do anything they put their minds to. I hope they’ll be honest like their father. I hope they’ll be stubborn like me. I hope that they know what they want and won’t settle for less. And if they want to play baseball, well, we’re gonna have a little talk first.”
Derek and Hannah were married in July 2016 after dating for three years.
