Derek Jeter's latest girlfriend, Hannah Davis, has apparently made a big splash during her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue photo shoot and is believed to be a frontrunner for this year's prized cover shot.
The 22-year-old Ralph Lauren and Victoria's Secret model is being compared to last year's SI swimsuit sensation and cover girl, Kate Upton, according to the New York Post.
The shoots have just wrapped up, and we're told green-eyed Davis made a "rare, huge first impression" on the SI editors for her rookie issue, a source said.
Davis, who was spotted clubbing with the 38-year-old Jeter in August and meeting him at Manhattan's Gramercy Park Hotel in December, has stuck with Jeter through thick and thin — literally.
The Yankees shortstop is rehabbing from ankle surgery and put on a few pounds after the October operation but that didn't stop him from hobbling up to the Gramercy in his walking boot for a rendezvous with Davis. When last seen at a Knicks game a few weeks ago, Jeter looked fit and tanned.
Davis, who was born in the Virgin Islands, seems to fit Jeter's type (hot) and just might end up as the SI swimsuit model rookie-of-the-year.
Talk about luck. What are the chances you start dating a woman and six months later she's an SI cover girl. The good life just never ends for the Yankees Captain. Minka who?
