Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Mom-to-be Hannah Jeter showed off her baby bump on the red carpet Thursday.
The 26-year-old model attended the 2017 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue launch in New York after announcing she's pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Derek Jeter.
Jeter flaunted her growing belly in a formfitting, sequined black dress with an asymmetrical neckline and thigh-high slit. She had told fans Monday in an essay for The Player's Tribune that she and Derek are expecting a daughter.
"We want our kids' lives to be as 'normal' as possible," the model wrote. "They're going to be born into such an extraordinary situation. They're going to have to be some strong little people."
"Derek and I will want our children to understand that the lives they've been given are so fortunate, in so many ways. We'll want them to learn to help others, and to care for others, and to give back to the world," she added.
Jeter later said in an interview with People that she and Derek still "have some brainstorming to do" on their daughter's name. She said she and the 42-year-old retired MLB star are looking forward to welcoming a girl.
"I don't like anything now that I'm hearing," the model said of the former New York Yankees star's ideas for names. "But that's probably 'cause I'm just an emotional hot mess lately. So everything, I'm like, 'Never, I could never name her that!' So we'll see."
"[Derek and I] both have two nephews right now [whom] we absolutely adore and we spend a lot of time with, so I'm really excited to buy all the girly fun stuff because we've been buying boy things for years," she added.
Jeter will appear in the 2017 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue with such models as Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen and Ashley Graham. She first appeared in the 2013 edition, and starred on the cover of the 2015 issue.
