The couple got the good news a few days after celebrating their first marriage anniversary. Upton and Verlander tied the knot a year ago in Italy. It was right after Verlander and the Astros won the 2017 World Series, reported E! News. The couple was together for three years before getting engaged in 2016.

The professional baseball player spoke about his beautiful relationship with Upton and how she has been there for him through his difficult times. In August, Verlander told the Bleacher Report, "Who knows if I'm even here if it wasn't for her?"

According to E! News, Verlander told Bleacher Report that he had a career-ending injury at one point in his life. "She was instrumental in me not jumping off a bridge," Verlander told the publication. He also discussed being depressed and how Upton helped him "basically like a therapist". 

The couple has always shown love and respect for each other, and now they embark on a new journey together as parents.
