There’s not a whole lot to say here other than congratulations to the happy couple and their daughter. Something tells me Genevieve is setup for a hell of a lot of success with parents like Verlander and Upton. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

The obvious question here is when Upton will get back to modeling or if she even intends to at all. As I noted above, she’s been a star for years. Now that she’s a mother, maybe she’ll be a lot less focused on the modeling game.

It might disappoint some of her fans, but I think it’s more than understandable. Chapters in life close and you move on. After all, I think we can all agree being a mother is more important than being a model.

Congratulations to the new parents!
