Congratulations are in order for model Kate Upton and her husband Justin Verlander, who have revealed that they are expecting their first child together.

Like so many stars, the model took to Instagram to share the happy news with her followers, posting a photo of herself wearing a red jacket and trousers co-ord against an idyllic seafront backdrop, captioned simply with ‘#PregnantInMiami @justinverlander.’

Her husband re-posted her photo with an extended message to the mother-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,’ he finished.

It’s thought that the model and the baseball player started dating back in 2012, and dated on and off into the following year. After a brief hiatus, they got back together at the start of 2014, and their relationship appears to have gone from strength to strength ever since.

In 2016, the couple confirmed their engagement when Kate debuted her a diamond ring on the red carpet at the Met Gala. ‘I’m really excited, he asked me right before [baseball] season started so we’ve been keeping it on the down low for quite a while,’ Kate told E! News that night. ‘I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world.’

Their wedding took place in Tuscany, one of the first places they’d holidayed together, in November 2017, with Kate wearing a fairy tale gown with embellished lace sleeves and a full, princess-style skirt by Italian fashion house Valentino.

The couple are yet to confirm when they are expecting their new arrival, so watch this space...
