Derek Jeter is going to be a dad

Hannah Jeter writes a column in The Players Tribune. Writing can be a tough business to break into, but I guess she knows someone there or something.

Anyway, the upshot of the column is Hannah, who you might know was an internationally famous model before she met The Captain, talking about how she came to know Jeter and how they grew together as a couple. Maybe not the sort of thing you care about, but it’s interesting insofar as she didn’t really know much about baseball when she met him and did not really understand that Jeter is kind of a big deal in New York. It’s also interesting in that she announces publicly that she and Jeter are expecting a daughter soon.

Which, again, is not significant in and of itself, but is significant insfor as Derek Jeter becoming a father is the launching pad for great old jokes like this:

We kid because we love, Derek.
