Justin Verlander is an American professional baseball pitcher who plays for the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball. He previously played for the Detroit Tigers and was regarded as a key figure in four consecutive American League Central Division championships. The 6 feet 5 inches tall and 225 pounds heavy pitcher is a phenomenon in his field.
With a personality like his, Verlander is bound to get a beautiful wife. In fact, he did. Now he is married to the Supermodel Kate Upton. So, how is their relationship going on?
Rumors wreaked havoc on the media when the baseball player and the Sports Illustrated model were spotted together in St. Thomas in January 2013. The rumors were prevalent before this event but they became even stronger after this event.
Those rumors were confirmed in October of the same year by Kate's parents but the Romance had fizzled out.
Soon after, Kate started dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy. This relationship didn't last long and soon they parted ways. One month later, Kate and Verlander were spotted at a Flyers game. They visited several locations together which made their relationship stronger.
In 2014, they were spotted at another hockey game. They celebrated her 22nd birthday at Chicago Cut Steakhouse. After a while, Verlander ended up proposing Kate.
The couple had made very big plans for their wedding. They planned to have their wedding in Tuscany, Italy on the first weekend of November. All of their friends and family had already made the trip to Italy to attend their wedding.
For Kate's ceremony dress, she collaborated with the team at Valentino. Kate's makeup and hair were done by her close friends.
On the other hand, Justin had been working to create Kate's eight-carat round diamond engagement ring. His Tuxedo had very intricate details including the words 'Just Married' inside his jacket when he held it open. A greenhouse was created for their reception.
The couple is popular for supporting each other in their work. Kate is known for supporting Justin's match on November 2, even though he was supposed to be traveling to Italy for their marriage.
This shows that Kate really understands how Justin feels about baseball. Verlander also supports Kate by coming to several of her shows but also mentions that it is difficult because of his busy schedule.
Justin and Kate visit several exotic locations of the world. They attend many events together and spend all major holidays with their friends and family.
