Derek Jeter and wife Hannah Davis would be a welcome addition to Miami

Well, hello.

Looks like Derek Jeter is going to be a fixture around these parts.

On Friday, Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria agreed to sell the franchise for $1.2 billion to a group led by the retired New York Yankees star, according to widespread media reports. The deal needs approval by the MLB’s 30 owners, but we over at Miami.com are already giddy about this situation.

We lost some of our biggest players over the years — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O’Neal. So it will be nice to see some serious star power again. Derek Jeter is all that.

He’s not a party guy, really. Married to Sports Illustrated model Hannah Davis, who is expecting their first child together, a girl, Jeter seems like he won’t be making the nightclub rounds, though he has been spotted out with the guys in South Beach on occasion. 

Davis has been in Miami in the past for work (celebrating the SI Swim Issue) and pleasure (shopping at Bal Harbour Shops). 

This couple, who married in Napa Valley last summer, is tight. 

In a blog announcing her pregnancy back in February, the Caribbean beauty (she is from St. Thomas), Davis admitted she knew nothing about her athlete husband when they first met. She thought the amiable athlete referred to as “The Captain” was a pitcher. Seriously. 

The model finally understood the game when she saw his rabid fans at Yankees Stadium (not to mention all the signs asking them to marry him).

Their daughter, as well as future kids down the line, is going to live a “normal” life, despite the shortstop’s legacy.

“They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people,” Davis wrote. “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.”

In May, Davis looked like she was already to pop so this baby looks to be due any day.
