Actress Minka Kelly, girlfriend of Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter, has been named Esquire magazine's "Sexiest Woman Alive."

These gorgeous MLB wives and girlfriends love a man in uniform.

Kelly is the daughter of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay and late Vegas showgirl Maureen Kelly. Her mother died in 2008.

Kelly played Lyla Garrity on the NBC drama "Friday Night Lights," which begins its fifth and final season later this month on DirecTV.

She had a cameo appearance as herself on HBO's "Entourage" in the show's recent season finale. She also has a recurring role in the NBC series "Parenthood."

Her most recent movie role was a small part in "500 Days of Summer" in 2009. She stars in two upcoming films: "Searching for Sonny" and the thriller "Roommate," opposite "Gossip Girl" hottie Leighton Meester. 

Before being cast for "Friday Night Lights," Kelly had been working as a nurse for four years.

CINDERELLA OR SPOILER?

In any other year, the 2001 D-backs would have been America's darling.

Jeter is an 11-time MLB All-Star, has won five World Series titles with the Yankees and is currently searching for a sixth ring this season.

His team swept the Twins in the first round of the playoffs and will play in the ALCS against the winner of Tuesday night's Rangers/Rays matchup.

Kelly and Jeter have been dating for more than two years. Rumors swirled earlier this year that the pair is engaged but neither side has confirmed that.
