Kate Upton and Justin Verlander welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday, November 7.
The couple announced the news that their precious baby girl had arrived on Instagram on Saturday, November 10. Sharing a close up of her newborn baby girl, Upton revealed the name the couple chose for their first child together, “Genevieve Upton Verlander 11.7.18.”
Verlander went to his social media sharing a pic of he and Upton’s hands holding their new bundle of joy’s hands. The new father gushed writing alongside the post, Welcome to the world, Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my [heart] the first second I met you!!! 11.7.2018.”
The 26-year-old supermodel and her baseball pro hubby first revealed they were starting a family back in July. Verlander the doting husband and father-to-be wrote on his Instagram at the time, “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.”
Upton and Verlander exchanged vows in Tuscany, Italy in November 2017, just days after the 35-year-old Houston Astros pitcher and his team won the title of the 2017 world series champs against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Verlander gives his wife credit for his road to success after suffering multiple injuries in 2014 which forced him to undergo bilateral sports hernia surgery. In August, Verlander opened up to Bleacher Report in an interview.
“Who knows if I’m even here if it wasn’t for her?” Verlander told the outlet about Upton. “I really thought it was the end. … She was instrumental in me not … like, jumping off a bridge.”
