Derek Jeter has become quite the family man since hanging up his New York Yankees uniform.

The former professional baseball player, 45, told Us Weekly exclusively that raising Bella, 2, and Story, 9 months, with his wife, Hannah Jeter (née Davis), is the biggest “blessing.”

“Our second is not walking yet, which is a bonus, because once she’s up and about and moving around, it [will] become more difficult,” the athlete told Us at the 23rd annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner on Monday, October 7.
