UPDATE: Nov. 3 -- Derek Jeter confirmed the recent rumors of his engagement to Hannah Davis on Tuesday afternoon in an article he penned for The Players' Tribune. He did so by mentioning a present his “fiancée” gave him in December 2014: his dog, Kane:
I had no idea what I was in for as a new dog owner. He was a Christmas gift last year from my fiancée, whose family had Mastiffs growing up. I’ve never owned a pet in my life.
It appears that all-time Yankee great Derek Jeter has traded one diamond for another. Thirteen months after retiring from the MLB, Jeter has put a ring on the finger of girlfriend Hannah Davis, according to the New York Daily News.
Jeter’s representation had no statement on the report, while Davis’ could not be reached for immediate comment.
Rumors of the couple’s relationship first began to spread in 2012, when the two were seen at a concert, the Gramercy Park Hotel and elsewhere throughout the city. However, they didn’t make their official red carpet debut -- the celebrity version of a Facebook relationship status change -- until May of this year, when they posed together at the 2015 Met Gala.
Jeter, 41, has previously voiced his interest in settling down, telling NBC in September 2014 that he “want[s]” and “look[s] forward to” having a family.
Time will tell if the reports are true and if Jeter has officially traded his Yankee pinstripes and baseball cap for a tux and a wedding ring.
