How did Derek and Hannah Jeter meet? 

Derek and Hannah met in 2012 through mutual friends while dining at the same restaurant in New York City – although she wasn't fully aware of her future husband's incredible success with the Yankees. 

"I thought he was a pitcher. I know it sounds strange that I didn't know he was a shortstop," she wrote in a blog post for The Players' Tribune, which was founded by Derek.

"I can just imagine all of the New Yorkers reading this right now thinking, 'Oh, come aawwnn.' They probably don't believe me. You probably don't believe me. But it's true." 

She continued: "I didn't need much more to go on than this: I had met the nicest guy and I wanted to get to know him on my own terms. Not Google's."

Hannah added: "We met at the right time. To me, what matters in a relationship is being at the same place in your lives. And right from the start, I could tell that the timing of Derek's life and mine were aligned." 

When did Derek Jeter get married? 

Derek confirmed his engagement to Hannah after months of speculation in November 2015. The couple exchanged vows in front of less than 100 people on July 9, 2016, at Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, California.

Derek and Hannah are proud parents to four children, daughters Bella Raine, six, Story Grey, four, River Rose, one, and son Kaius Green, who was born in May 2023. 

Before their first child's birth, Hannah expressed her desire for her children to not be "defined by their dad's name." "They're going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They're going to have to be some strong little people," she wrote in another blog post for The Player's Tribune

"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." 

The couple kept Hannah's fourth pregnancy a secret until after Kaius' birth. "We've always valued privacy and continue to value that," Derek told People in September.

He added: "We wanted to wait and share the news til we felt the time was right, and that just so happened to be right after he was born. He was actually born on Hannah's birthday, so we were excited to share that news." 

Revealing what it's like to now have a son after welcoming three daughters, Derek explained: "It's been different for me because I have a younger sister and then we had three girls. So having a boy is a little different for me. But he's been great so far."
