Derek Jeter, legendary former New York Yankees shortstop, is reportedly off the market!
It’s rumored that Jeter, five-time World Series champion, has proposed to his supermodel girlfriend Hannah Davis. The couple has been linked romantically since 2012; they’ve kept their relationship largely private and didn’t make their red carpet debut until the 2015 Met Gala.
In September 2014, Jeter told NBC News that one of the reasons he retired from Major League Baseball is because he’s ready to start a family.
“Who knows when it’s gonna be?” he said. “But I look forward to it.”
Jeter, 41, has been linked to many female celebrities in the past, including Vanessa Lachey, Jordana Brewster, Mariah Carey, and Minka Kelly – whom he dated for three years immediately before meeting Davis. Jeter, however, has never been engaged or had kids. In a January 2015 interview, he hinted that he was beginning to have a change of heart.
“I just know that I personally couldn’t have done it while I was playing,” Jeter told Steiner Sports Marketing. “I was too selfish to be able to juggle a family and kids. But I look forward to it happening.
The couple hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but a source close to the couple told NY Daily News that they were ready to tie the knot.
“She already has the ring,” the source said. “The family is very happy because they really like him.
