Sports Illustrated model and actor Kate Upton and MLB star Justin Verlander have shared a special relationship for the past decade. The pair first met while filming a commercial together in 2012 and got back together shortly after. Despite their brief split in mid-2013, Upton and Verlander remain closer than ever, as the two tied the knot in November 2017 and welcomed their daughter, Genevieve, in November 2018.
While the pair have very different careers, they strongly support each other, and Upton has been particularly vocal about standing behind her husband as the Houston Astros advanced to the World Series in October. “I’m so proud of you @justinverlander . . . THE ASTROS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES!!! ❤️❤️❤️,” Upton wrote on Instagram in October. 27.
However, the World Series is not the only important event in the couple’s life. On Nov. 4, the two celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary, and Upton shared a sweet post on Instagram to commemorate the special milestone, writing, “5 years on . . . forever! Life with you never gets old. I love you @justinverlander . Happy birthday! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”
