Model Kate Upton, Husband Justin Verlander Welcome First Child Together

Model Kate Upton is officially a mom!

On Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018, the model-actress took to Instagram to announce that she and her husband, baseball star Justin Verlander, recently welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Genevieve.

"Genevieve Upton Verlander," the proud mom wrote to her six million followers, captioning an adorable black-and-white snapshot of their newborn daughter. Alongside a heart emoji, she added, "11.7.18." For his part, the Houston Astros pitcher posted a sweet pic of the family-of-three holding hands, writing, "Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my [heart] the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Upton, 26, and Verlander, 35, got hitched in an intimate ceremony held at a medieval church in Italy in November 2017 — just days after the pro athlete's team won the 2017 World Series. 

The married pair, who have been together since 2014, first announced that they were expecting baby no. 1 in July 2018. After the Sports Illustrated model wrote on social media, "#PregnantinMiami," her athlete husband gushed about the mom-to-be, writing, "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!" 

Just last week, Upton marked their one-year anniversary on Instagram. "This year has been the best year of my life!" she wrote in part, while sharing a romantic photo of the couple on their wedding day. "Now to celebrate our love and our first year of marriage we are preparing to welcome a new addition to our family. I'm so excited to go through this journey of life with you! I love you so much! Happy One Year @justinverlander."

These two aren't the only celeb pairing to share an exciting baby announcement this month. On Sunday, Nov. 4, Marvel star Josh Brolin and his entrepreneur wife, Kathryn Boyd, welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Westlyn Reign. While introducing their newborn daughter, whom they've nicknamed Bean, to the world, the proud dad wrote on social media, "Mama Kathryn was stellar during this miracle birth and Bean is a flawless gem through and through. We are blessed to the core and appreciate so much the love and support during this pregnancy from ALL who have partaken in our journey, directly and/or indirectly. #beanlove."

Congratulations to Upton and Verlander on their baby news!
