Derek Jeter’s Wife Gives Birth to a Baby Girl: How Many Kids Do Derek and Hannah Jeter Have?

Derek Jeter spent 20 years playing baseball in Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The Jersey-born and Michigan-raised shortstop wowed crowds for decades with his athletic prowess, easy smile and sheer love of the game. The team captain stepped away from the game following the 2014 baseball season not because he was too old to play, or that his star power was no longer on the rise, but because he simply felt it was time to move on and move on he has. Since his last professional baseball start, Derek Jeter has been building businesses, investing in an MLB team, and starting a family.
