Congratulations are in order for supermodel Kate Upton and her lesser half, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.

In a bombshell post on Instagram Saturday morning, Upton announced that she’s pregnant with the couple’s first child.


Talk about dropping the hammer down in a big way.

Having dated for north of five years, Upton and Verlander finally tied the knot in a lavish ceremony last year. The two are about the cutest couple in the entertainment industry. And it goes without saying that they will make breathtaking babies together (no, not in the Seinfeld way).

We give our best wishes to Upton and Verlander. May her pregnancy culminate in a beautiful and healthy baby.
