Congratulations are in order: Kate Upton is pregnant with her first child! The supermodel announced the exciting news on Instagram earlier today, when she shared a picture of herself in a red pantsuit while on vacation with the caption "#PregnantinMiami,” tagging her husband, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.
Upton, who happens to be a former Brides cover star, tied the knot with Verlander in a stunning Italian wedding on November 4, 2017, in Tuscany, Italy. The bride wore a stunning long-sleeved lace Valentino gown for the ceremony, and then slipped into a sexy second gown by Christy Rilling Studio for the reception, which was embellished with pretty pearls and featuring a swooping, low-back detail.
"For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino," Upton told Vogue at the time. "They are the best at creating delicate, beautiful lace and details, and their Italian heritage kept the fashion and feel authentic to our venue. The design process was extremely collaborative, so I was able to really include my personal style and create my dream dress.”
But the weeks leading up to their big day were more stressful than a typical wedding. The couple almost had to miss their own wedding day because of the World Series—the groom was in the middle of pitching for the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the World Series when their guests were already arriving at their venue! Luckily, the two made it in time for their wedding AND the groom helped bring his team to victory, winning the 2017 World Series.
The couple first went public with their relationship in 2014, and two years later, Verlander proposed with a custom-designed engagement ring created by jeweler Anita Ko.
The couple have not yet shared any further information about their growing family, but we can't wait to hear about baby Upton Verlander!
