Opening day is almost here and our favorite baseball girlfriend, Kate Upton, is still in full swing with our Detroit Tiger pitcher, Justin Verlander. The adorable couple share a passion for animals, but the two don’t see eye to eye on how many is too many to have.
The supermodel has 3 dogs but would love to have 10 dogs! Kate Upton spoke to E! News about how her boyfriend has put a limit on how many dogs she can have.
“Justin is definitely an animal lover but he is definitely holding me back from my 10 dogs,” Upton said. “He is putting a three-dog limit on it.”
Ten dogs would be a lot to keep up with. Upton is in Florida with Verlander and tomorrow (March 31) she is hosting a Grand Slam Adoption before the Tigers vs. Yankees spring training game at Joker Marchant Stadium in an effort to raise awareness about shelter dogs. The event includes dog adoption, family-friendly activities and a virtual silent auction benefiting SPCA Florida and K9s For Warriors, an organization that pairs service dogs with war veterans.
They couple have been together now for 3 years! Here’s what Upton had to say about their relationship.
“For us, we always try and work on our communication,” Upton says of their staying power. “We’re very open with one another and we’re each others best friends. He’s definitely my best friend, so I think that helps a lot.”
I think they’re a fun couple and here’s hoping Verlander has a standout season with the Tigers
