Derek Jeter is reportedly engaged to Minka Kelly. We all know who Derek Jeter is, but who is Minka Kelly? Jeter has always had his pick of the litter when it came to women. So what is Minka bringing to the table that no girl before her has brought?
I have always viewed Jeter as the George Clooney of sports. A guy who just got it. A guy who understood there was no rush when it came to the ladies. Jeter, like Clooney, would have his fun and didn't care what the public thought. This was a quality that ended up working for him as opposed to working against him.
Jeter has always been that guy. The guy with the perfect life. The guy with a different gorgeous girl at his side every other month. Those days are gone though.
Jeter has pulled a Tom Brady and looks to be settling down. Where must we look for our entertainment now? There are always prospects out there. We still have Alex Rodriguez, and I think Mark Sanchez is a possible candidate.
Let's just hope Jeter has learned from Tiger Woods because Minka Kelly is set to be the only girl in Derek's world now. Did you hear that Derek? It's Minka FOREVER. I hope you know what you're doing man. Let's take a closer look at the chosen one, Minka Kelly everyone...
Here is a video of Minka Kelly for all to enjoy!!! Congrats Derek... She looks to be the GOODS!!!
Minka was born in Los Angeles on June 24, 1980. She is the daughter of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay, and the late Maureen Kelly. Maureen was a former Las Vegas showgirl.
Minka went to High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but soon returned to Los Angeles to pursue an acting/modeling career.
Minka's first break came when she landed speaking parts on Nickelodeon's Drake and Josh, and on Fox's Cracking Up. These small parts paved the way for bigger and better things.
Minka followed up her small television rolls on Nickelodeon and Fox by appearing in the 2005 film Devil's Highway, and the television show American Dreams.
It was also in 2005 when Minka landed a recurring roll on the WB sitcom What I Like About You, starring Amanda Bynes.
Minka's biggest break was when she landed the role of Lyla Garrity on Friday Night Lights, a role she took very seriously. In fact it's been reported she actually trained with the cheerleading squad from the Pflugerville High School in Texas.
Minka then started hitting the big screen. In 2007 she appeared in The Kingdom.
After The Kingdom, Minka appeared in 500 Days of Summer which came out in 2009.
Minka is now set to appear in The Roommate, opposite Leighton Meester. It's supposed to be a thriller/horror type movie, but with Minka in it, does it even matter what kind of movie it is? The chick is crazy hot.
Earlier I said Minka's biggest break was getting a role in Friday Night Lights. I would like to retract that statement. Minka's biggest break to date has been her ability to win over Derek Jeter. This move alone will propel Minka into another world of celebrity status.
So there you have it. Minka Kelly in a nut shell. I actually like the girl. I mean look at these pictures again. She is freaking gorgeous, and one would have to believe she is the complete package if Jeter has fallen for her. Either way it's the end of an era for the Yankee shortstop.
Rumor has it the wedding will take place sometime in November. You had a nice run Derek! Hell, you had a great run my man!
