Congratulations are in order for Kate Upton and Justin Verlander! The two welcomed their first child together — a daughter — on November 7, 2018.

The supermodel and the professional baseball player have been together since 2014, and they got married in 2017. On July 14, 2018, Kate announced that she was pregnant by posting a beautiful photo on Instagram. She added, “#PregnantInMiami” to let her fans know she was expecting.

Justin immediately responded by sharing the same photo and leaving an adorable comment. “You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!!” he wrote. “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.”

On November 11, Kate shared a sweet close-up of her baby’s hand and face to announce that she had given birth. The couple’s daughter is named Genevieve Upton Verlander.

Justin also shared a photo of their new baby — his hand holding Kate’s and Genevieve’s hands — with the caption: “Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my ❤️ the first second I met you!!!”

There’s no question that baby Genevieve has parents who absolutely adore her. We can’t wait to see more photos of this little one! Watch the video below to learn more about Kate Upton and Justin Verlander’s relationship.
