The notoriously private sporting megastar, Derek Jeter, and his wife, Hannah, have officially welcomed their second child.
Together, the two share a 17-month-old daughter, Bella Raine, who is now the proud big sister of an utterly adorable baby girl, Story Grey Jeter.
Following the birth of their first child, Hannah briefly talked about how their life has changed since bringing a baby into the world. “We want our kids’ lives to be as ‘normal’ as possible. They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people.”
She continued, “We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name - for them, we want him to just be ‘Dad.’ That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn’t. It will be special, and it will be theirs.”
She went on to clarify the previous statement. “Still, though, I want them to know Derek Jeter. I feel some sadness - and Derek must as well - thinking about how our children will never get to experience that time in his life.”
“We can show them videos, photos, and memorabilia - I already can’t wait to show them footage of that last night at the Stadium. But I know it won’t be quite the same. I’ll tell them myself: You had to be there.”
It has also been reported that Derek has been extremely hands-on with his first daughter, so it will be no surprise that he will likely be just as devoted of a father to his newest addition.
We are so excited to see the first pictures of little Story Grey! Congrats to mom, dad, and the new big sister!
