Now that Derek Jeter is retiring his Yankee jersey, he will have much more time to spend with his girlfriend, Hannah Davis.
The famous shortstop, who has dated his share of models and actresses, has seemed to settle down, at least for now.
Here’s what you need to know about the couple.
1. They’ve Been Dating On and Off Since 2012

They began their courtship in 2012, after Jeter’s breakup with Minka Kelly.
Back in February, Page Six reported that Jeter was back with Davis after having taken a brief hiatus.
New York Magazine was invited into his West Village apartment, where it was reported there wasn’t “any sign of Hannah Davis, Jeter’s 24-year-old model girlfriend.”
2. They’re Both Athletes
Jeter found an athletic girl to compliment his abilities. Davis, a native of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, was a champion tennis player in the Carribean.
She told Sports Illustrated, “I was traveling throughout the Caribbean and then I was going to these national tournaments in the summer all over the U.S.”
She actually stopped modeling for a time to pursue the game. “Eventually I had to quit modeling because I was trying to balance modeling and tennis at the same time. It was a struggle. I had my coach coming with me to fashion shoots and it was all mixed up,” she told the magazine.
3. He’s 16 Years Older
Davis, 24, doesn’t seem to mind that she’s dating an older man.
In June, when the Captain turned 40, he celebrated at Catch Roof in New York City’s trendy Meatpacking District.
With Davis at his side, he mingled with celebrity guests like Diddy, Jorge Posada, Tino Martinez, Michael Strahan, Timbaland and LL Cool J.
“Derek and Hannah were really into each other. She stayed close by his side all night. He seems really into her,” a source told the NY Daily News.
4. Baseball Fans Approve
When Jeter was playing in the All-Star Game on July 15, ESPN kept showing Davis sitting with Derek’s family.
This sparked viewers to weigh in on Twitter.

5. He Ice Bucket Challenged Her
In a rare public display of affection, Jeter, who is usually quiet when it comes to his personal life, gave a shout-out to his lady in his ice bucket video, shown above.
In the video, whose goal it is to raise money for ALS, he challenged Davis, Kevin Connolly, and Michael Jordan.
