Derek Jeter & Sports Illustrated cover girl Hannah Davis are engaged

Derek Jeter

This story caught my eye because I’ve always been amused by the infamous Derek Jeter swag bag, which was detailed by Page Six in 2011. This was the send-off gesture from Jeter to his one-night stands. He’d put them in a cab (how courteous) and send them packing with a gift package containing an autographed baseball. The bag made headlines when he erroneously gave the same swag twice to one lady, and so the urban legend was solidified.

Well, there will be no more swag bags in Jeter’s (near) future. He and Hannah Davis are now engaged. She’s the Sports Illustrated cover model whose cover was inappropriate to even post here. And I find this couple interesting because they go dutch on romantic Italian dates. They split the check on pizza! I still think they could just take turns paying checks, but whatever makes them happy. Now they’re engaged:

Derek Jeter’s days as a player are over in more ways than one, according to sources close to super model Hannah Davis. Jeter and Davis are finally ready to tie the knot after three years together, and if The Captain hasn’t yet set a date, that’ll be the next step.

“She already has the ring,” we’re told. “The family is very happy because they really like him.”

The notoriously private pair has been linked since 2012 and have become increasingly public about the romance since the Victoria’s Secret beauty was spotted cheering on the Yankees at Chicago’s Wrigley Field in May of last year.

See, not even the New York Daily News could resist calling Jeter a “player,” because his reputation as a ladies man runs far and wide. He’s had some long-term relationships like Jessica Biel and Minka Kelly (who dumped Chris Evans twice for him), but now Jeter’s getting married. Maybe he’s really settled down though. The dude retired a year ago after 20 years on the field, so maybe he simply ran out of gift bags. I couldn’t resist! Congrats to Derek and Hannah.

    I wish her luck with his mom…

  2. snowflake says:

    Ewww! Run girl run! Just think every girl he’s slept with she’s sleeping with! Eww!

    • Nikki says:

      Now wouldn’t this be “slut shaming” if it were the woman? I find indiscriminate sex with many partners unattractive in EITHER sex, but I thought that’s an unacceptable view nowadays, in this site.

      • snowflake says:

        Yeah I guess it would be. But I’m just thinking of it from my point of view. Hes a well known player and athlete. Personally I wouldn’t want that penis within ten feet of me if I was her. Condoms can’t stop everything. If he wants to sleep with everyone, whatever. I just wouldn’t touch it. Not meant to be a judgment on his lifestyle but I wouldn’t hit it. Much less marry it unless I was into open relationships. Cause there is no way he will be faithful

      • antipodean says:

        Absolutely Snowflake, a leopard does not change its spots, it just hides them better. The STD flurry does not bear thinking about. What could go wrong?

    • Pmnichols says:

      I do not get the hype over this guy?! He looks like an opossum, and he has zero swag.

  3. sarah says:

    i actually really like them together. Hannah seems really nice & she’s very funny in interviews. Idk i kind of feel bad for Minka Kelly? But they ended a while ago.

    • Michelle says:

      She is also an athlete. She went pretty far in tennis competitions. She is also beyond gorgeous.

  4. Esteph says:

    Why?! Hannah, better watch your back girl.

  5. mp says:

    the 6 degrees of Derek Jeter must be insane

  6. QQ says:

    i bet the swag bags are gonna continue, she’ll just be the Bona fide in the manor

    • mimif says:

      He totally has bulimia cheeks.

    • Esmom says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Might need to upgrade a few of the items to make sure things stayed locked down but otherwise no need to discontinue them.

      I don’t really know of what I speak, just going on hunches. Maybe he’s faithful and won’t need the bags anymore after all.

      mimif, I think he has chubby cheeks but I always think of bulimia cheeks as being more prominent at the back of the jawline, closer to the ear.

  7. INeedANap says:

    Get something out of your 15 minutes of fame while you still can girl, there’s a fresh new hot blonde about ready to come off the conveyor belt.

    And ugh. Jeter. Ew.

  8. TreadStyle says:

    Eww Ive never understood why women find him attractive, at all. She’s really very pretty. Maybe he realizes he better lock it down before she realizes she can do better!

  9. Lilacflowers says:

    How many engagements does this make for Jeter?

  10. Truthful says:

    He looks like her dad! run girl!

  11. als says:

    Minka Kelly dumped Chris Evans twice for Jeter? Is this for real?
    Nevermind the who’s who. a guy was dumped twice by the same woman for the same man?
    I would become celibate and still wouldn’t go back.

  12. Tiffany says:

    This sounds like it all come from her camp. Jeter is uber private so she needs to tread lightly.

    • Sarah says:

      That’s what I was thinking, because there were a few articles pointing out how much Ms. Davis’s parents loved and adored him, it primarily centered around Hannah and her family, as well as “friends” of the couple who were gushing over the supposed proposal. This keeps up, I wouldn’t be surprised if he breaks up with her for good at some point. Funny thing is, I heard nothing from Derek’s camp. Then when he spoke at an event a few days ago, he was asked about the rumors of his “engagement” to Hannah, he didn’t answer the question. The rumors seem to be false, but you never can tell.

  13. Wentworth Miller says:

    Before fully scrolling down, I thought it was a picture of Kendra and Hank.

  14. Cran says:

    He is highly focused. He wants to own a team. He has finely crafted his image and understands his marketability. If you watched how Mariano Rivera handled his final year and Derek handled his own I found Rivera to be the more genuine. Derek seemed to loosen up and allow himself to enjoy playing but he has always been very guarded.

    Not surprised he is getting married. Always thought he would marry whoever he was dating the last couple of years before he retired. See a couple or three kids in the next five years.

  15. Whatwhatnot says:

    Listen, Derek Jeter gets my respect. As an athlete, his access to groupies was crazy, he knew this and had his fun knowing he wasn’t thinking about settling down. And unlike some of his peers (cough, cough, ARod) he knew better than to get married to only end up cheating on his wife and family. He was always honest and forthcoming. By all accounts, Derek is a stand up guy. And although Hannah is kind of young for him, I think they look great together and now that he has retired from the game after an amazing career, and now that he no longer has to go on the road for half a year, he seems to have matured and is ready to settle down. I’d rather a man like that, then one who commits to me in marriage, knowing full well he will have a hard time refusing the temptations on the road.

    • boredblond says:

      It does seem that these guys who were playas for decades pick someone so young she couldn’t have such an interesting when he started pro ball, she was in preschool? Yeah I guess that’s right.. I do bet any millionaire who goes Dutch will have her sign one tight pre-nup.

      • geezlouise says:

        She doesn’t appear to be that intelligent but Derek doesn’t want or need a woman who may outsmart him.

  16. Chelly says:

    Say what you want about his sexual indiscretions but I think hes amazing. You never hear anything negative about him. So hes been with a lot of women, he was a young SINGLE athlete living it up. Big deal. If thats the worst of it, I think hes fantastic & all around great pick. Best of luck to them❤️

    • Nicolette says:


    • Whatwhatnot says:

      Exactly. I don’t know where people are getting this “cheat” vibe from him? As long as I have known about Jeter (since his rookie year) I’ve never heard of him treating anyone like crap, his girlfriends included. He was young, rich, an athletic hero and single. Would they rather he married young have kids and cheat with any woman he came across like so many of these athletes tend to do? I think he did everything right.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Agreed 100% Maybe he had the best PR in the history of the world, but you never heard about him being a diva/jerk/etc. Everyone top to bottom always spoke highly of him, even Red Sox fans for crying out loud! 😉

      I bet the ladies man, swag-bag rumours were true but hey, he was single, rich, hot and the captain of the Yankees. Get it, girl.

      Yeah, he’s my “always would” celeb so I’m a smidge sad to see him go off the market (not that I actually had a chance haha)

  17. Gatita says:

    Hm, I always thought he was gay and in the closet. Weren’t there rumors flying around a few years ago?

  18. Jen43 says:

    Jeter is a smart guy as well as a great athlete. The fact that he could play his whole career in NY says a lot about his character. He comes from a solid family. He treated his fans well. I think I told this story here once, but I was at spring training several years ago, and he was the biggest draw. The kids kept calling him while he was at batting practice and he came over several times to talk to them. He was asking about school and telling them it was important to do your best in school. I mean, how much more can you expect from an athlete? I wish him and Hannah the best.

  19. Nicolette says:

    She’s beautiful but that Sports Illustrated cover was pushing it. Didn’t look sexy it looked like border line porn.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      It wasn’t any worse than a few other covers in recent years. It’s almost identical to the 2009 cover. And Kate Upton had one just as revealing a couple years ago. At least they didn’t airbrush away Hannah Davis’ pelvic bone like they did with Upton–that cover really looked wierd instead of sexy (2012, I think). (I work in a public library where people ask us to censor the swimsuit issue pretty much every year, so I know way more about it than I should.)

  20. lowercaselois says:

    I wouldn’t expect anything less than a Sports Illustrated/Victoria Secret model for Jeter. I bet splitting the bill is one of tests for Jeter, to see if the girl likes him for his money.

  21. Alana says:

    Good luck girl. Does anyone know of a serial womaniser that doesn’t go back to that. Maybe he will last couple years but can’t be hopeful that he won’t be cheating again

  22. Katrina says:

    I just want to know what in the world they could possibly talk about.

  23. Amal's Wardrobe says:

    Minka still loves this guy. I swear there’s nothing attractive about him. He’s so jock. And the one-night-stand thing is so tacky. Too many obvious jokes come to mind when we’re talking about following up sex with an autographed baseball. Oh, there were some nasty rumours about Jeter having given Alba and Scarlett Johanssen herpes. Hannah Davis looks like Fiona Apple.

  24. A says:

    Hannah is gorgeous but I don’t see them lasting for more than two years. I’m pretty sure Minka is affected by this news…we’ll know for sure if we get another photo op with Evans lol
