Derek Jeter is about to add a sixth ring to his collection. Sources tell the NY Daily News that he and supermodel fiancee Hannah Davis are planning to tie the knot in July in Napa Valley. No date was given beyond “early in the month,” but over Fourth of July weekend is a possibility.
Sources close to the couple say that there will be a croquet party on that Friday night, with Davis planning her bachelorette for early June in Miami. No word yet on Jeter’s big plans before he says I do, but whatever it is you can bet it will involve Jorge Posada. Jeter was, of course, Posada’s best man back in 2000, and the former backstop was one of the first few to be told about the engagement.
“I’m happy for him,” Posada said at the Lou Gehrig Sports Awards dinner in November. “She’s amazing. We love her. We look forward to that day.”
As for Joe Torre, or Mr. T as Jete calls him, you better believe he will be in attendance if the Captain calls his number.
“I don’t know if I get an invitation,” he said at the same event. “I think it’s great.”
As was the case throughout his entire career, Jeter and Davis have been tight-lipped throughout their relationship, and that hasn’t changed with the wedding. One of the very few details Davis has revealed is that she will wear a Vera Wang dress.
Neither camp has confirmed nor denied these reports yet.
