Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, not to be outdone by any Duggars, Clooneys or Knowles-Carters, is back in the news. His wife, supermodel Hannah Jeter, just confirmed that she is pregnant with their first child.
Jeter, in a rather bizarre post on The Players Tribune, wrote, “I think people assume that—because I was a relatively well-known model—dating a famous baseball player wouldn’t have been an adjustment for me. But trust me, not all levels of fame are created equal. When Derek Jeter walks into a room … the whole room takes notice.”
(Yes, what a difficult adjustment that must have been, Hannah. Do go on.)
“Paparazzi followed us at times. People interrupted us during meals. The only way to maintain some sort of privacy—to be together, just the two of us—was to stay in.”
(And make babies. We got it.)
“It’s funny: You don’t see many photos from the early part of our relationship…and that’s why. We rarely went anywhere.”
(Hannah, you know that nobody is worried about this, right? I mean, not to burst your relatively well-known model bubble, but you haven’t exactly been on our radar one way or another. I mean, yay on the babe and all, but chill, honey. It’s all good.)
Jeter included a photo of her five-time World Series champion fella holding pink balloons. (Hannah, you’re not quite as subtle as Bey, but we appreciate the heads-up on the gender.)
And it sounds like Derek Jeter wears the baby-naming pants in this family: “He already has a name in mind—he’s set on it. Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him.”
Hannah, you’re the one pushing this junior shortstop into the world through your supermodel vagina. We say hold out for whatever name you like. Papa Jeter will be fine.
