There is good news for baseball lovers and fans of New York Yankees. Retired captain and the legend of the Yankees, Derek Jeter and his wife Hannah Davis Jeter are now parents to their first baby who they welcomed on Thursday. The news was tweeted by his sports website, The Players’ Tribune, which congratulated the new mother, Hanna, for the birth of her baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter.

Derek is now a parent and a proud owner of Miami Marlins

The Bronx Bombers also congratulated them, and they were anxious to meet the baby. Baby Bella is the first child of the baseball player, 43-year-old Jeter, and Hanna, 27, who is a popular swimsuit model.

Not only will the new father and former shortstop begin his parental responsibility but also exercise his managerial duties as the owner of the Miami Marlins which he bought from Jeffrey Loria.

Jeter and Davis started dating in 2012 and got married in July last year at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California. The retired Yankee announced in February this year that their baby girl was on the way. Jeter’s wife posted on his website, The Players Tribune, then reported that she was pregnant with their first child and she and her husband Derek were looking to the future. She added that whatever name they would call her girl, she will run circles around her dad.

The couple want their kids to be just normal

The sports couple hope that their kids will live as normal as possible. The supermodel said that their children will be born into an extraordinary situation and will be strong young people.

They don’t want them to be recognized by their father’s name, and achievements and their wish is the kids to know Jeter Derek as just “Dad.” She believes that’s what will make her children unique, and that’s the only connection they will have with their dad which the rest of the world doesn’t have.

Jeter was awarded for his achievements as a former Yankee

Coincidentally, or perhaps a good timing with the great news, The Yankees played against the Boston Red Sox even though they lost. In May, Derek joined Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and Joe DiMaggio to become the 22nd Yankee to have his jersey retired. The Yankees had dedicated for him a plaque in his honor at the Monument Park, and he had walked into the field to have a close look. Jeter had retired with the highest record in the franchise of 3,465 hits and was sixth on baseball’s all-time after playing in 20 seasons.

Jeter had received a replica of his retired number, plaque and a white gold ring with his achievements list and addressed the crowd thanking them for their support. Some of his team mates were not present, but they congratulated him on Twitter. All the best to the new parents.
