Kate Upton sizzles in her birthday suit as she celebrates topless 26th birthday
The model had her birthday celebrations on Sunday and decided to grace her fans with a topless Instagram post in order to thank them for their birthday wishes.
Kate Upton is toasting to another year of her unending sexiness, and we're not complaining. The model, who turned 26 on Sunday, decided to grace her fans with a topless Instagram post in order to thank them for their birthday wishes. And needless to say, she did not disappoint.
In her post, the Sports Illustrated model was seen wearing just a baseball cap backward that reads “Wild Ones” and staring out to the sea, all the while sipping on a glass of wine in a Boomerang post, baring her sideboob in the process.
“Put on my birthday suit to thank you for the birthday wishes!” she captioned the shot, adding the hashtags #wildone, #26 and #iknowyouwannaseemenakeynakeynaked, which is a clear reference to DJ Khaled’s hit song with Bryson Tiller and Rihanna, “Wild Thoughts.”
She shared another picture from her birthday celebrations, although a less racy one, that showed the model enjoying the waterside view the same day.“Having the best birthday week 💛💛💛,” she wrote alongside the post.
Upton, who is married to professional baseball player Justin Verlander, is enjoying her birthday week just days after it was reported that she had topped Maxim‘s Hot 100 list.
“You know, I work really hard on myself: on feeling good, working out, being strong. Being number one on the Hot 100 is a little reward for all of the hard work,” she told the magazine.
At the same time, Kate recalled how her fate was decided when she was unexpectedly spotted at age 12 while leaving a Florida horse show. "I was a horseback rider, so growing up around the barn, you don't really think of yourself being in the fashion industry," she recalled.
Prior to Upton, people like Stella Maxwell and Taylor Swift landed the first spot in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
"Our annual Hot 100 issue is about so much more than physical beauty, although this year's nominees have that in spades," Robert Price, Chief Operating Officer for Maxim, said in a statement. "Now more than ever, we need to celebrate smart, powerful women who are breaking boundaries, shattering glass ceilings and showing us what is possible—none more so than our incredibly talented cover star, Kate Upton."
During her interview with Maxim, the successful model revealed that it was the opportunities that opened the gates of success for her. "It seemed very glamorous," she remembered. "You know, being able to travel and meet new people and experience new things."
She also reflected back on her first modeling gig in which she had to travel in Peru and Israel. "I was so excited," she said of both experiences. "It was one of my bucket-list trips. Israel is such a new country, but obviously with such old, rooted history. I went to Jerusalem and to the Dead Sea and floated around; my mom came with me."
