The couple’s fans started sharing congrats on her post right away.

“Congratulations Kate and Justin. God bless! What a precious baby it will be!” one commented.

Another wrote, “God Bless you both at this wonderful time.”

Verlander reposted his wife’s photo with a sweet message for her just a few hours later.

He wrote, “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.”

The Sports Illustrated model and Verlander, who first went public with their relationship in early 2014tied the knot in 2017. 

She recently landed the top spot on the Maxim Hot 100 list.  

“You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong,” she said about her top spot. “Being No. 1 on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all of the hard work.”

Upton appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit issue in 2012, 2013, and 2017.
