Derek and Hannah Jeter are growing their team.

The model and host of Lifetime's Project Runway: Juniors is expecting her first child with the former baseball player for the New York Yankees, she announced Monday.

"Big moments also have a funny way of making you look ahead," she wrote on The Players' Tribune, a media platform founded by her husband in 2014. "Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future."

She teased that the couple will be having a daughter.

"He already has a name in mind — he’s set on it (We'll see.)," she continued. "Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him."

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model also noted that she wants her kids' lives "to be as 'normal' as possible."

"They’re going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They’re going to have to be some strong little people. We don’t want them to be defined by their dad’s name — for them, we want him to just be 'Dad.' That will be the piece of him they’ll have that the rest of the world doesn't," she wrote. "It will be special, and it will be theirs."

The couple tied the knot in July 2016 at a private ceremony at the Meadowood Napa Valley Resort in St. Helena, Calif. The former MLB star also used his website to subtly break the news that he was engaged by referring to Hannah as his "fiancee" while writing about his pet dog Kane.
