Last week, the New York Daily News reported that former Yankees player and current blogger-in-chief Derek Jeter had gotten engaged to model Hannah Davis.

On Tuesday, the notoriously private Jeter confirmed the news in his own inconspicuous way in a blog post on The Players’ Tribune about how he’s adapted to dog ownership since his retirement.

I had no idea what I was in for as a new dog owner. He was a Christmas gift last year from my fiancée, whose family had Mastiffs growing up. I’ve never owned a pet in my life.

Even in retirement, Jeter’s media discipline is as strong as it was when he was the most instantly recognizable and blandly platonic player in baseball.

Derek Jeter is engaged! And you will have that news confirmed in an essay dedicated to Jeter’s dog and like it.
