Last November, Upton and Verlander stirred up an internet maelstrom when they were married in Italy, just three days after the Astros World Series victory. Then this past July, Upton rocked Instagram when she revealed she was expecting with the hashtag “#PregnantInMiami.”

Eager fans will no doubt keep watch for more images of baby Genevieve. And though the Astros may not have come away with a World Series appearance this year, congratulations are certainly in order for this biggest of wins.
