PHOTOS: Kate Upton And Justin Verlander Vaction In St. Thomas
Model Kate Upton and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander have been spotted together again – this time at the Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas.
The pair were spotted on the island in the beginning of January. "He [Verlander] keeps a conservative distance, but still you can tell they are dating," said a New York Post spy. The 20-year-old model and the baseball star, 29, were seen strolling on the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton resort and enjoying the Caribbean sun. The luxury resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands has 180 guest rooms and 30 acres of secluded property.
Upton and Verlander met each other while filming a commercial spot for the MLB 2K12 video game back in February. Since then, the couple has been spotted multiple times in Detroit. In July, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit pin up even attended one of Verlander's games sporting a Tigers' hat. However, at the same time it was also being reported that Verlander was in a long-term relationship with Emily Yeun, who he has apparently dated since college.
Back from her reported vacation with Verlander, Upton is having some fun with the girls. Friend Maria Menounos posted a picture of herself with Upton and Stacy Kiebler on Instragram on Wednesday, with all of them donning chopstick mustaches.
