Parenting may just be the hardest job in the world. It isn’t easy raising another human being, taking responsibility for their actions and even their personalities, up to a certain age. And what is one supposed to do with endless movie and song repetitions playing throughout the house on a daily basis? It’s like Derek Jeter said, a parent’s favorite music becomes whatever their kids are listening to on any given day.

Jeter is a relatively new parent, with three daughters of ages five, four, and one. With his wife Hannah, the former shortstop loves sharing his girl-dad life on social media. From tackling one antic to another, Jeter is still a proud father. But much like any parent, when it comes to his sleep schedule or preferred music, his daughters rule the house.

The 48-year-old recently appeared for an interview with Brett Martin of GQ magazine. It was a part of his induction into the GQ Sports Style Hall of Fame, the first of its kind. Jeter talked about everything going on in his life post-retirement and shared some anecdotes from his pro-athlete days. Known for being rather close-lipped about his personal life, Captain Clutch did share some stories about his daughters.

As one might guess, Frozen and Encanto topped the list for Bella, River, and Story Jeter. Ever since Frozen made its way to theaters in 2013, it has dominated sleepovers for every toddler age group. Most kids under ten have belted out the chorus to Let It Go at one point in their lives. And the youngest Jeters are no different.

Jeter has no sleep schedule, much like his kids

Everyone knows it’s hard to get most children to stick to a regular sleeping routine because that messes with the adults too. Talking about his own bedtime, Jeter told Martin, “I’m not a big sleeper, I don’t sleep in general. I got three girls now…so I don’t sleep much anymore.”
