Derek and Hannah Jeter announced that they're expecting a daughter

On Monday, Derek Jeter's wife Hannah announced that she is expecting a daughter.
In other words: Yes, Jeter will be a father.

And as with Jeter's engagement announcement, the news came in an otherwise inconspicuous article on The Players' Tribune. Written by Hannah and titled, "The Derek I Know," the post describes the early days of the couple's relationship and how she eventually grew to realize she was dating Derek Jeter. And then, two-thirds of the way through, she drops a bombshell:
"Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future."
Talk about burying the lede.
Read more about the Jeters' news here, and stay tuned for a name reveal, which we assume will come in a post about Jeter's favorite taco truck in New York City. Although, according to Hannah, he already has one picked out:
"He already has a name in mind - he's set on it. (We'll see.)"
