Maxim Hot 100 beauty Kate Upton dropped a pair of sun-soaked bikini pics that sent her 6.2 million Instagram followers into a “like”-tapping frenzy. 


With a fruity refreshment in hand, the American supermodel and wife of Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander donned a yellow underwire bikini from Les Girls Les Boys, matching sunglasses, gold hoop earrings, and a straw Hemlock Hat Co visor while basking in rays from the deck of a yacht at an unknown tropical location. 

“Enjoying some vitamin sea,” Upton cheekily wrote in the caption. Her fans hit the “heart” button over 330,000 times in just a day, making it her popular post since she shared a similarly-themed seaside snap in July of 2019, which received nearly 365,000 likes. 


Upton welcomed her first child with Verlander in November of 2018. She’s since opened up about the pressure that society puts on new mothers to lose weight immediately after giving birth, as the New York Post notes. 

“I tried to push myself early to get back to the gym, eat perfectly and try to achieve this alleged ‘snap back,’” she wrote on Instagram in January. “But, after realizing how ridiculous these pressures are I quickly gave myself some slack and lived in the moment as a new mother.”
