Kate Upton shares first swimsuit snap after giving birth. Kate Upton has proven yet again that she is the queen of swimsuit modeling.
Seven months after giving birth to her first child, daughter Genevieve – whom she has with husband Justin Verlander – the 26-year-old new mum shared a sizzling snap of herself in a black swimsuit on her Instagram, which she paired a floral pink kimono, white fedora and sunglasses.
She captioned the pic: “Things are finally heating up…🔥”
And a lot of her celeb friends agreed.
Fellow model and mum Lily Aldridge wrote: “Hot mama 🔥🔥🔥.”
While comedian Whitney Cummings added: “Now I’m starting to get suspicious you had a surrogate.”
Upton even got a flirty comment from her husband, who wrote: “One hot momma! 😍😍.”
“When I first came out on the cover of Sports Illustrated, I had a of criticism on my body and it was a really tough time,” she told the publication.
“One of the hardest moments was when a blogger really attacked me and my body calling me these mean names and it really hurt me and upset me. And I was like, ‘Why am I even doing this? Why am I evening putting myself out there to get this scrutiny?'”
Thankfully, her manager and fans made her see the importance of staying true to yourself.
“There was all of this fan mail of women expressing to me their different stories — how they suffered from body image issues or eating disorders. And I was like, ‘That’s why I’m doing it. It’s for them.’ And it’s for me to. It’s for me to love myself again and find that happy place again
It’s so hard the criticism we face, on Instagram and seeing everyone at their best all the time on social media. How do we become our best self? Why are we working out? It’s for us. It’s for us to live our best life. To be the best moms. The best business women. Whatever it is.”
