Kate Upton has given birth to her first child with husband Justin Verlander

Kate Upton and her husband Justin Verlander have announced the arrival of their first child together and it’s a little girl.

Kate, a 26-year-old model and actress, announced that she was pregnant with her first child back in July.

She confirmed her happy news with an adorable Instagram post and has revealed the birth of her daughter in the same manner.

Kate and Justin’s daughter was born on Wednesday 7 November but the couple waited until Saturday to share the news with the world. The proud mother-of-one posted an adorable black and white close up of her little girls’ hand and face with a simple caption revealed her name and birthday.

Kate and Justin have chosen Genevieve, which is quite a unique name, and isn’t listed in the top baby names list for 2018.

The couple haven’t revealed if their daughter has any additional middle names but she has taken on both of her parents’ surnames.

Kate has six million followers on Instagram so it is of no surprise that her sweet post has proved very popular and quickly amassed over 300,000 likes and 4,000 comments.

One of her fans wrote: ‘Congratulations on your precious baby girl !! 💕’.

Another said: ‘Congratulations!! What an elegant name. Welcome to this crazy wonderful world Genevieve.’

A third added: ‘Congrats on your bundle of joy 🎀👶🏻🎀’.

Not all of Kate’s fans were keen on her baby name choice as one person wrote: ‘Congrats but like y u gotta name her Genevieve like out of all names u pick thattt???? 😭😭😭😭… congrats [sic]’.

Earlier this week Kate and Justin celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary and she marked the milestone with a picture from their special day and an emotional caption.

Kate gushed: ‘This year has been the best year of my life! It had a crazy beginning with a World Series win and the BEST wedding weekend, where I got to marry my best friend and love of my life. Now to celebrate our love and our first year of marriage we are preparing to welcome a new addition to our family. I’m so excited to go through this journey of life with you! I love you so much! Happy One Year ❤ @justinverlander’.

Little did Kate and Justin know that they wouldn’t have to wait too much longer as their little girl arrived days later!

Congratulations to Kate and Justin and welcome to the world Genevieve!
