No. 2 means something new in the Jeter household now.

New York Yankees great Derek Jeter and his supermodel wife Hannah announced the birth of their first child on Friday. Bella Raine Jeter was born Thursday and, as you might have expected, her birth announcement came from the Jeter-owned Player’s Tribune Twitter account:

You think the Yankees’ famous No. 2 has already been up at 2 a.m. changing a stinky No. 2 diaper? Hey, Jeets, you’re in for a number of new challenges now to go along with his post-retirement publishing career and his, ahem, other big news of the week.

Jeter is reportedly close to buying the Miami Marlins. How’s that for an expensive week in the Jeter household? Not often does one buy a pro sports team *and* become a dad in the same seven-day span. But if anybody has the composure to pull it off, it’s Jeter.

We haven’t seen any pictures yet of the Jeter family’s new bundle of joy, but the genes are obviously great. When we do see little Bella, the internet will probably be even more excited than they were for the birth announcement:

Still waiting on that A-Rod tweet though.
