It was high-fives all around as Kate Upton celebrated the Astros' 7-1 win over the New York Yankees Friday night in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series.
Casually dress in denim jeans, trucker jacket, and red blouse, the model was ensconced in a luxury box at Minute Maid Park with friends and family of her fiancé, Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, as she excitedly cheered on the team and her main man as the Astros triumphed in the "must-win" game to even the series at 3-3.
Afterward she posted this photo on her Instagram page:
The deciding game of the series will be played at Minute Maid Park tonight.
Upton, 25, and Verlander, 35, got engaged in 2016 after three years together. But they couple has not set a wedding date.
'"I'm really excited about the engagement and I'm really excited about getting married. It's just the wedding planning sucks," she told Extra at the premiere of her movie, The Layover, in August.
A one-time self-proclaimed Yankees fan before she met Verlander, Upton is leaving no doubt where her loyalties lie now. She has attended all three Astros games against the Yankees in Houston and boldly wore the Astros’ orange-and-blue colors while dining with a male friend at The Smith in New York's Flatiron District earlier this week, the New York Post reports.
And the newspaper dug out this quote: “I used to be a really big Yankees fan,” Upton said while serving as a guest host on Live! in 2014, a year into her relationship with Verlander, who was playing for the Detroit Tigers at the time. “But I’m sleeping with the enemy.”
