Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and his wife Hannah Davis announced on The Players’ Tribune that they are expecting a baby girl.
Jeter’s wife Hannah didn’t really know much about him when they first met. In the piece “The Derek I Know” on the website, she went into detail and thought of him as a pitcher before knowing about his background.
“I know it sounds strange that I didn’t know he was a shortstop. When a mutual friend introduced us while I was at dinner with my mom in New York, I didn’t really know who Derek was at all…
Derek and I met during the off-season, and I think that was a lucky break. It let us spend some time together away from New York. I didn’t have any preconceptions about who he was, and I didn’t need much more to go on than this: I had met the nicest guy, and I wanted to get to know him on my own terms. Not Google’s.”
She never knew how much he meant to Yankee fans and his 20-year career. But when they finally got married, everything changed. Jeter looks happier than ever despite being a star in New York who did it the right way. They still didn’t decide the name of the baby yet, but is that really a surprise?
“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.”
