According to the New York Post's Page Six, they could be. An "insider" tells the paper that Jeter and "Friday Night Lights" star Minka Kelly are engaged, but just haven't gotten around to informing the general public.
From the NYP:
"Derek and Minka are secretly engaged," an insider told Page Six. The Yankee captain and the actress are telling close pals to "save the date" for nuptials in the fall. "The wedding is being planned and will take place after baseball season is over," said our source.
Many of you will ask, is it true?
To which I'd respond, how in the name of John Dewan would I know?
However, a rep for Kelly says there's no wedding planned and it was just earlier this summer that Jeter shot down engagement rumors to a NYDN reporter who drew the short straw and had to, uh, pop the question in the Yankees clubhouse. This report could just be a plan for the NY Post to manufacture page views — a practice we here know nothing about.
