Congratulations are in order for Derek Jeter and Hannah Jeter.
The New York Yankees star, 42, and the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, 26, are expecting their first child – a girl – she announced on The Players’ Tribune Monday.
“Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future,” the model wrote. “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.”
And it sound like it’ll be be first of many for the couple.
“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. 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,” she continued. “And if they want to play baseball, well, we’re gonna have a little talk first.”
This will be the first child for the couple who were wed at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California in July 2016.
Congratulations to the Jeter family!
