In his own social media post, her husband wrote a candid message to Upton in celebration of the news [sic]: "You’re going to be the most amazing Mom!! I can’t wait to start this new journey with you! You’re the most thoughtful, loving, caring, and strong woman I’ve ever met!"

The 35-year-old continued, "I’m so proud that our little one is going to be raised in this world by a woman like you! I love you so much."

Rumours that the couple were dating first emerged back in January 2013. Three years later, Upton confirmed their engagement by debuting a seriously sparkly ring at the 2016 Met Gala.

At the star-studded fashion ceremony, she told E! News: "I'm really excited, he asked me right before season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while. I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"

Upton married the professional baseball pitcher in an intimate ceremony in Tuscany on 4 November 2017 in a frothy wedding dress by Valentino.

After announcing the pregnancy news, Upton returned to her modelling duties.

Such an inspiring day with these women! #SISwimSearch
