Kate Upton’s now-husband Justin Verlander recently snagged a fairly important ring recently: he won a World Series as a pitcher for the Houston Astros, so his week started like this:

WORLD CHAMPIONS!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ @justinverlander !! What a series!!! What a month!! Congrats @astrosbaseball !! #earnhistory #houstonstrong ????????

Not a bad way to kick things off. But soon after earning the title of Word Series Champion, he got an even better piece of hardware: a wedding ring. The supermodel and the pitching ace tied the knot in a gorgeous, ultra-romantic ceremony in Tuscany, Italy.

Upton shared a sweet snap from the nuptials, alongside a heartfelt tribute to her new husband:

I feel so lucky that I got to marry my best friend!! @justinverlander Thank you to our family and friends for making this weekend so fun and magical! ❤️❤️❤️ (???? @ktmerry )

The timing of the wedding happened to coincide with the Astros’ victory parade back in Houston, so he was MIA for the confetti swirling and the cheering fans, but we have a feeling Verlander didn’t mind at all. Before the wedding, Upton gave her thoughts on what their plans for the big day might entail. Click here to check out what she had to say.
