Retired Yankee Derek Jeter asked girlfriend Hannah Davis to marry him this weekend in celebration of their three year anniversary. Jeter, known for being a long time bachelor is officially off the market at age 41.
Here’s what you need to know about his fiancee:
1. She’s Different Than His Other Lovers Because of Their Compatibility
According to a source for US Weekly, Davis is different from all of Jeter’s previous girlfriends—including Minka Kelly, Vanessa Lachey, Jordana Brewster, Mariah Carey, and many more—because of her personality and their compatibility.
“Their relationship works because they are both supportive and sweet to each other. They almost never fight,” the source said.
Even when Jeter celebrated his 40th birthday a year ago a source told New York Daily News, “Derek and Hannah were really into each other. She stayed close by his side all night. He seems really into her.”
2. People Are Totally Jealous of Jeter’s Model Fiancee
“Derek is totally in love with her. He thinks she’s beautiful, sweet, and sexy! All of Derek’s friends are jealous that his fiancée is so beautiful,” a source close to Jeter told US Weekly.
Heartbroken people are Twitter are expressing their mixed emotions of happiness for Jeter and Davis but also sadness because both celebrities are now officially unavailable.
3. Part of The Reason Jeter Ended His Baseball Career is to Start a Family
Before his last game at Fenway Park in 2014, Jeter told NBC.
I have the utmost respect for these guys that are able to do it — you know, missing their kids’ birthdays and not being able to see them play Tee ball or summer ball and missing a lot of time. So it’s another reason why I feel as though now’s the time. I mean, I want to have a family. Who knows when it’s gonna be? But I look forward to it.
But now since Jeter is retired, he is able to focus on his love life.
“They are extremely excited and in love! They can’t wait to spend their lives together,” a source told E! News.
4. They’re Private About Their Love Life and Want to Keep it That Way
Davis and Jeter like to keep their love life private for the most part. Only posting a few Instagram pictures once in awhile or showing up to events together was their only indication that they were dating. When Davis was asked about it she always kind of avoided the question and said she didn’t pay much attention to rumors.
Jeter danced around the question even earlier today at a luncheon for the Long Island Association held at the Crest Hollow Country Club. He said to the New York Daily News:
“In my career, I’ve always felt as though your private life is private. I don’t talk about it because I think some things you have to keep close to yourself. Some things are sacred. So I’ve never addressed anything in my private life.”
5. Davis & Jeter Are a Power Couple
