Speaking about his secret for maintaining such a happy married life, he says, “I don’t know if there’s a secret but we’ve had a lot going on [over] six years. We’ve got three kids under 5 years old. You know, I lived in Tampa for 20-plus years. Shortly after we got married, we moved to Miami. I had a career change. And then, you know, she signed up for me being retired and ultimately, I don’t think I’ll ever retire because you are always doing something. It’s just finding time for the two of you.”
On the other hand, Derek Jeter is the ideal father that one could imagine to be. He loves spending time with his three daughters and raising them with utmost care. Speaking about how he spends time with his children, Jeter adds, “The mornings are early… getting them up, they’re not in school right now, but dropping them off at school, picking them up. Tennis lessons, ballet lessons, you know… I’m getting my nails painted and makeup on my face, dresses. So there’s a whole other side to me.”
In conclusion, Derek Jeter is now the family-man one would expect a perfect husband and father to be. He has several businesses and ventures that are keeping him going post his illustrious career. Reflecting on everything, from being an ideal father, husband, and a MLB legend, Jeter says, “I always said this during my career, I have the utmost respect for players who were able to have families while they played. I was very selfish. It was all about me and my career and I just wasn’t able to do it, but now it’s, it’s the greatest blessing I’ve ever had. You know coming home and, they could care less how your day went… Most days, they’re happy to see you… It’s just been a wonderful experience.”
