A major move! Derek Jeter and Hannah Jeter (née Davis) are raising their family in Miami after he purchased the Marlins baseball team, and raising two kids in Florida has been “definitely different” than New York.

“It’s nice because we’re now in our own home, and it makes it easy to move around, play in the yard, enjoy the outdoors, etc.,” the former New York Yankees player, 44, said in Haute Living’s April/May cover story. “My wife loves living in Miami.”

The former professional baseball player added: “My oldest daughter is heading into school somewhat soon, so we’ve begun the process of looking at schools. We’re enjoying life and raising our family here.”

Derek and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, 28, tied the knot in 2016, and they welcomed their daughter, Bella, 19 months, one year later. In January, daughter Story arrived.

“Congratulations Derek and Hannah on the birth of your second baby girl, Story Grey Jeter,” the former shortstop’s website, The Player’s Tribune, tweeted at the time. “Welcome to the family, #2.”

While the Fair Ball author keeps his children out of the public eye, he opened up about Bella’s milestones to Us Weekly exclusively in May 2018.

“She’s crawling. She’s pulling herself up,” he told Us at the time. “She’s standing up. She’s going to be walking soon.”

Derek gushed about how much he loved being a father in February 2018. “[It’s] by far the most gratifying thing I’ve ever been a part of,” he told CBS This Morning at the time. “Regardless of how your day went at work, when you get home and you see a smile on your daughter’s face, it makes it all worthwhile.”
