Congrats to Kate Upton!
The Sports Illustrated model is expecting her first child with husband Justin Verlander, she revealed on Instagram on Saturday. Upton shared a stylish snap of herself posing in a fierce red suit on a sunny balcony, with just a hint of a baby bump visible beneath her jacket. Upton and Verlander tied the knot in Italy last November, just days after he helped the Houston Astros win their first-ever World Series.
“#PregnantinMiami @justinverlander,” she captioned the pic, tagging her husband and adding sun and heart emojis. Stars like Brooklyn Decker, Irina Shayk and Zac Posen couldn’t help but express their congrats in the comments.
Verlander shared his feelings in a comment to his wife’s Instagram post.
“You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!!” he wrote. “I can’t wait to start this new journey with you! You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met! I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much.”
Upton, who started dating Verlander in 2014, recently gushed about him as she topped the Maxim Hot 100 list last month.
“I got to marry my best friend,” she told the magazine. “He’s an amazing man. He’s so supportive and focused and motivated, and he inspires me every day. I’m so very lucky that he’s my husband.”
