Kate Upton is officially one hot mama.
The model showed off her post-baby figure in a black bikini on Instagram this week with a revealing photo that was a huge hit with her followers. It garnered ten of thousands of likes and all manner of supportive comments, including some that had a hard time believing Upton had only given birth a few months ago.
“Now I’m starting to get suspicious you had a surrogate,” commented comedian Whitney Cummings.
“Things are finally heating up,” Upton wrote in the picture’s caption.
“#MomBodGoals,” another wrote.
The picture was the most revealing snap that the model had shared on Instagram since giving birth to her first child, a daughter named Genevieve, last November. Upton had already shared some other pictures showing her working out, and this one now showed off the fruits of that labor.
Upton has been enjoying motherhood so far, especially her first Mother’s Day. As People magazine noted, the 26-year-old model spent the special day with another new mom in her family. Upton explained that she hung out with her sister, who also gave birth to a little girl just three weeks after Upton did, and later caught up with her husband, baseball star Justin Verlander, for dinner in Detroit.
Kate Upton has already given her followers a glimpse of the family life, including pictures of herself cradling little Genevieve. In her Mother’s Day post, Upton thanked her mom and sister for teaching her that “we can achieve anything that we put our hearts and minds to.” Upton said she hopes to teach her own daughter the same thing.

Vivi thank you for making me a mom. You have taught me there is no deeper love! I am so blessed to be surrounded by all of these amazing strong women ????❤️ #happymothersday #girlmom
Kate Upton’s figure may be directly related to the efforts she’s taking to be the best mom she can possibly be. In her interview with People, Kate shared that her diet and workout regimen are all in an effort to be the best she can for her new daughter.
“Eating healthy and working out is putting you in the best mental place to be your best self and to have that confidence,” Kate shared.
“It’s hard coming back post baby,” Upton added. “I’m working out and still trying to lose all the baby weight, but I’ll get there though, and I know that, and that’s what’s great about having a confident mindset.”
Fans seem to be quite happy with Kate Upton’s progress, as the reaction to her most recent Instagram picture shows.
