26-year-old Kate Upton is about to go from model to mama. It has been reported that the stunning supermodel is expecting her first child with her handsome hubby of eight months, baseball player Justin Verlander. Looks like he hit a "home run!"
The beachy blonde beauty posted a pretty pic on her Instagram account on Saturday to deliver the exciting news to her fans. A succinct #PregnantinMiami@justinverlander 🌞❤️ was all it took for the media to instantly react, fans to congratulate the expecting couple, and the "baby bump" bonanza to begin.
US Weekly, the delighted dad-to-be raved, "You're going to be the most amazing Mom!! 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."
Not to mention the fortune this fetus will be gaining in good genes.
If you live under a rock and have no clue who Kate Upton is, first of all, find another rock with internet access. Secondly, here's a little background. "Katherine Elizabeth Upton is an American model and actress. Upton was named the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue Rookie of the Year following her appearance in the magazine in 2011, and was the cover model for the 2012, 2013 and 2017 issues. She was also the subject of the 100th-anniversary Vanity Fair cover. Upton has also appeared in the films Tower Heist (2011), The Other Woman (2014) and The Layover (2017)."
You may have seen her intoxicating image in ads for Sam Edelman, Victoria's Secret, Express, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, David Yurman, Guess, Garage, and Dooney & Bourke too. Her amazing all-American good looks, super-curvy figure, killer smile, and blonde bombshell-ness make her a standout, proving "model thin" is no longer in. Or at least there is room for a body like hers. And aside from SI, Upton has glamorously graced the pages of GQ (naturally), Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, LOVE, Mademoiselle, and other top-notch fashion mags. Her sexy-meets-sweet look is undeniably attractive, promotable, profitable, and only gets better shoot after shoot. Surely her doting husband agrees.
Upton and Verlander tied the knot on Nov. 4, 2017, "in an ultra-posh wedding in Italy — just days after the baseball pitcher helped the Houston Astros score their first-ever World Series victory," as described by People magazine. Sure was a lucky year for that son-of-a-gun.
So, we may not see Upton posing for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue for a while, unless they start to feature models in maternity wear. But a one-piece and a onesie? Maybe after she delivers, the mag will want her first pics as "mom."
Congrats to the happy couple and their growing little family. We can't wait to meet this cutie.
