The 49-year-old former St Louis Cardinals player responded: ‘Yes she will.’
It is not confirmed if Jim had a pre-nuptial agreement with Meghan, who he married in 2014 and shares three young children with.
However a source told Us Weekly Meghan, 35, signed a prenup five years ago.
And of course, it seems likely the father of seven would have taken precautions to protect his fortune following his two prior failed marriages.

Jim has come out fighting following his split from Meghan, after he filed for divorce on Friday.
He took to social media on Monday morning to deny all claims of an extramarital affair with the couple’s young nanny, one of four the family employed.
Jim accused Meghan of being ‘disgusting and irresponsible’ and said while ‘we all make mistakes, this is not one of those times.’
He insisted: ‘I did not sleep with our nanny. She’s not just a nanny, she is someone that we brought into our house and promised to protect and look after while she was in our home. We have been treating and raising this young girl like she is our own child! For someone to accuse me of sleeping with her is not only wrong, it’s disgusting and irresponsible.’
He continued: ‘Just because I am an athlete and I was portrayed as a bad person on bravo TV. Doesn’t mean I don’t have a clue what life is all about. We made a promise to that young girls mom, that We would take care of her and make sure that she was safe while she was in our hands.’
The former athlete went on to say he would not be standing for the lies and is ‘fighting back’ to ensure the ‘truth’ is out there.
‘I’m speaking out’: Meghan commented about the split in a lengthy blog post on Tuesday
Sunday evening Jim took to his Instagram Stories to write: ‘They should make a new law where you can be arrested for making false accusations against anyone!’
While Jim denies cheating with the 22-year-old nanny, he has previous form for being unfaithful.
Just four months ago Jim, who played in the outfield for the Los Angeles Angels and St. Louis Cardinals, was exposed as sending explicit messages to baseball groupie Jennifer Villegas, while Meghan was pregnant with their twins.
He even sent a video showing him pleasuring himself the same day Meghan was in hospital preparing to give birth to twins Hart and Hayes.
He maintains the relationship was never physical.
As for Meghan, she said she was ‘speaking out’ in a new Instagram post on Tuesday.
Sharing a picture of a flower, the reality star wrote: ‘When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you’ve been buried. Perhaps you’ve been planted. Bloom.’
On her blog she went into their break-up in detail, concluding: ‘I am broken for my family. I am buried in despair. I cry at the drop of a hat.
‘But I am enduring. I will set an example for my children and I will teach them to love and respect people while also knowing not to condone unethical or wrong behavior. I will facilitate healthy, consistent, and ongoing relationships with their father and with his family despite the hurt I feel from them because my children should not reap the karma of my personal situations.’
