Top model/talent Kate Upton and baseball star Justin Verlander have enjoyed a whirlwind first year of marriage, culminating in the birth of daughter Genevieve on Nov. 7.
“Didn’t win #cyyoungaward, but I can’t be too upset when I have this little girl waiting for her daddy off camera!” the MLB pitcher, 35, captioned the Wednesday snapshot.
We’re sure that Genevieve will bring buckets of joy and family bonding to the Upton-Verlander marriage. Right now, the touching note that Verlander posted on Instagram on the couple’s first wedding anniversary captures our heart. AOC has been in Kate Upton’s corner for years.
“I feel like the luckiest man in the world to have married my best friend. Every day you inspire me to want to be better,” he said. “You are such a strong woman but yet still so very caring. You stand up for what you believe in. You are just as beautiful on the inside as you are out.”
“You are the first thing I want to see every morning for the rest of my life,” he continued. “You are the first person I want to talk to when something good, or bad happens. You are the person I always try my best to make happy. I know that together is where we are supposed to be. In good times and in bad together is when we are at our best!”
“You are my everything and I am so blessed to experience this crazy journey of life together with you,” Verlander concluded. “Happy 1 year anniversary to the best wife anyone could ever ask for!”
Now THAT is a man with a whole lot of genuine class. And this reissue of a spectacular image from the Upton-Verlander wedding to celebrate their anniversary makes it a poignant and beautiful time in the life of Kate Upton.
