It has certainly been quite a week for Justin Verlander.
First, the former Detroit Tigers ace won the World Series with the Houston Astros after he and his teammates defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers four games to three. Now, Verlander has married supermodel Kate Upton in Italy.
According to TMZ, Verlander and Upton were married on Saturday.
The famous supermodel and pitcher were both beaming after saying their “I dos” Saturday at an old church at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in Italy. The wedding party looked pretty small — close friends and family.
Just after winning Game 7, news broke that Verlander would be skipping the Astros victory parade in Houston because he already had plans to get married in Italy.
