Justin Verlander and Kate Upton are going to have their first baby

When an announcement is important, you don't have to dress it up in a ton of verbiage or pomp and circumstance. The news itself says all that needs to be said.

That was certainly the case on Saturday morning when Kate Upton posted a photo on Instagram with a simple caption: "#PregnantinMiami @justinverlander." Justin Verlander and Upton are ready to welcome their first child into the world:

#PregnantinMiami @justinverlander 🌞❤

Verlander and Upton were married in Italy just three days after the Astros won the World Series, causing him to miss the team's parade. We'll be waiting for the gender reveal in the coming months and, of course, the scouting report on the future Verlander's fastball.
