Kate Upton is excited to spend more time with her husband Justin Verlander following the Astros’ World Series victory.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit alum, 30, posted a sweet tribute to the Astros ace, 39, who won his second World Series with Houston last week following a victory in the game 6 against the Philadelphia Phillies.
“Congratulations to @astrosbaseball and my husband on winning the World Series! And even more to celebrate…now we’re bringing you home! Upton gushed.
Moments after the Astros’ World Series victory, Upton – who recently celebrated his fifth wedding anniversary with Verlander – crashed the Fox set at Minute Maid Park, where the two-time Cy Young Award winner sat with the daughter of the couple, 3 years old – the old Geneviève.
“I love watching my husband do what he loves to do,” Upton said.
Verlander returned to the mound in April after being sidelined for the 2021 season following Tommy John’s surgery. Upton explained on Saturday what the trip back to the World Series was like for their family.
“It’s such an amazing experience, I mean, having Justin home and being able to be together as a family is so amazing, and then going to the exact extreme and being here at the World Series…it’s just so exciting,” said -she.
Upton was also asked by David Ortiz if she wanted Verlander to retire or play one more year. The model laughed and smiled before gushing over the nine-time All-Star.
“To see him doing his craft, he’s such an artist there. When he throws, it’s just so creative, it’s such art, and we’re so honored to be a part of it,” he said. she declared.
Verlander, who landed in Houston in 2017 in a trade with the Detroit Tigers, gave up the last year of his contract with the Astros. He owed $25 million for the 2023 season and is expected to get a massive raise in free agency after his Cy Young-caliber season.
