Esquire magazine named actress Minka Kelly its sexiest women alive today.  She is also supposed to be marrying New York Yankees captain and shortstop Derek Jeter sometime next month.

How ironic is it that Jeter, who is on the late side of his career, is now looking to settle down.  Jeter has quite the track record of dating celebrities during his years with the Yankees.

Kelly just turned 30 in June and has been with Jeter since May 2008.  Kelly is a West Coast girl who was born in Los Angeles.  She is well-known for her role on NBC hit Friday Night Lights, where she played star cheeleader Lyla Garrity.

This is quite the honor for any female, and there is no denying how attractive Minka Kelly is.  She was excited upon the release and had this to say.

“Done with the twenties,” Minka, 30, tells the magazine. “I’m confident—confident in my skin, and I’m cool with my flaws and all that stuff. It just feels nice to be at peace with yourself. I think my thirtieth birthday gave me permission to have all that. The twenties were a pain in the ass—figuring it all out. What am I doing? Where do I go?”

Be sure to pick up your copy of this month’s Esquire.  As one might expect, Kelly took some great pictures as part of the photo shoot.

It is something you don’t want to miss!
