After their nuptials last November, model Kate Upton and her husband, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander,were merely pondering adding a dog to their family. So it’s surprising to hear that Kate is pregnant.

Kate, 26, announced she was expecting via social media, where else? On Saturday, she posted a shot on a South Beach hotel balcony showing off a visible bump, adding the hashtag #PregnantinMiami. Justin shared the photo on his page, adding the gushing caption, “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.”

Kate was in South Florida over the weekend, along with fellow Sports Illustrated model alums Olivia Culpo, Christie Brinkley and Kate Bock for the magazine’s first-ever open model casting at the W Hotel.

If Kate wants to do runway work during her pregnancy, Tommy Hilfiger is more than happy to send some her way. According to TMZ, the designer has given Kate an open invitation to model for him, stating, “Our business is all about inclusiveness and diversity, and not just about 90 pound models.”

I’m not a fan of Kate’s, but who doesn’t like baby news? It sure seems like Justin is excited and for that, I’m happy for him.

    SO cute. They seem like a really cute couple in love, and obsessed with dogs. I’m sure they will be good parents.

    I did not realize she was only 26!

  2. kellybean says:

    Congrats to them, I guess. But I never saw what the big deal about her was. Her face is just “meh” and her body is square. I guess big boobs can open doors.

  3. YeahRight says:

    I feel for her back!
    Pregnancy boobs are no joke!
    Good luck!

  4. Sayrah says:

    Wow her husband sounds head over heels in love. Good for them

  5. Margaret Byrne says:

    She looks so happy. Good for them! I don’t understand the snide when it comes to women wanting a career and lucky enough to be pretty, too. I say use what you got ’cause we’re still only 80% compared to men in worth. Anyone know the brand of her black dress? It’s a little too deep-V for her preggo boobs, but dang it’s classier than most.

  6. Pirate Dread says:

    I know she gets a lot of hate. Anyone looking to hate on her why? Is it her rich entitlement? I do not understand the seething hate people have for her. Someone willing to cue me in?

    • Nikki says:

      I was going to post the same thing; wonder if she did something I don’t know about? I liked her, because she’s the first really large chested model in a world of skinny gals, and I am naturally large chested too! She got a lot of hate originally simply because she was large chested, and was called unkind names. I think she’s very pretty, and seemed OK in her movies for a non-actress.

      • Susannah says:

        She was pretty vocal on Twitter about being against the rights of NFL players to kneel. Saying they should be proud to be American (suggesting they weren’t, of course, by using their first amendment right to protest!) Then invoking 9/11. It was nasty and somewhat Trumpian of her.

  7. Who ARE These People? says:

    Is there a way to let Tommy Hilfiger know that diversity and inclusiveness are not about pregnant women and that pregnancy is not the reason most women weigh more than 90 pounds?

  8. Cia says:

    A match made in heaven-she’s alt right masturbation fodder and he’s an entitled idiot. If they have a daughter, I wonder if Kate will let her pose with Terry Richardson. It’s empowering, right?
