Derek Jeter and Hannah Davis Jeter have just added a third to their team, welcoming a baby girl on Thursday. They have named their daughter Bella Raine Jeter. The news was broken by The Players’ Tribune, which tweeted out congratulations to the couple just after noon on Friday. The tweet read, “Congratulations Derek and @hannahbjeter on the birth of your baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter, born Thursday, Aug. 17.” Mere minutes later, Jeter’s former team, the New York Yankees, followed suit, tweeting, “Congrats to Derek & Hannah Jeter on the birth of their daughter Bella Raine Jeter. We can’t wait to meet her!” The team also added a great gif of the baseball icon tipping his hat to the crowd.
In an interview with People in February, Davis Jeter confessed that her husband already had a name for their bundle of joy, but she was less than thrilled. She confessed, “I don’t wanna tell you, ’cause I don’t think that’ll be the name, personally. We have some brainstorming to do. We have some time.” She added, “I don’t like anything now, that I’m hearing,” she admits. “But that’s probably ’cause I’m just an emotional hot mess lately. So everything, I’m like, ‘Never, I could never name her that!’ So we’ll see.” In that same interview, the model added that she and her husband were really embracing all things girly in preparation for their daughter-to-be. She shared, “[Derek and I] both have two nephews right now [whom] we absolutely adore and we spend a lot of time with, so I’m really excited to buy all the girly fun stuff because we’ve been buying boy things for years. And there’s not that much cute boy clothes, like you really have to look for them.”
We’re sure that while Bella Raine might have a room full of all the girly baby items under the sun, she also might have a little bit of an athletic twist in her future—perhaps a baseball bat or two?
Jeter and Davis were married in 2016 in an intimate wedding in St. Helena, California.
