Reports surfaced in October, that the 28-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and husband New York Yankees legend were once again expecting after she was spotted out and about in New York City looking like she was sporting a small baby bump.

The swimsuit model gave birth the first time in August 2017 to their daughter, Bella Raine. Shortly before she wrote a first-person essay about how she hoped to give their kids “as normal” of life as possible despite both their celebrity status.

“We want our kids’ lives to be as ‘normal’ as possible,” Jeter wrote. “They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people. 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.”
“Still, though, I want them to know Derek Jeter. I feel some sadness — and Derek must, as well — thinking about how our children will never get to experience that time in his life,” she added. “We can show them videos, and photos, and memorabilia — I already can’t wait to show them footage of that last night at the Stadium. But I know it won’t be quite the same. I’ll tell them myself: You had to be there.”
The popular duo tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Napa Valley, California, in 2016.
