Kate Upton is spilling the tea – literally. The 27-year-old model and actress has mostly been making headlines for going conservative following the November 2019 birth of her daughter Genevieve. While the recent breastfeeding snap of Kate came with the “Sports Illustrated” model in a bathing suit, this was no figure-flaunting photo.
Kate upped the ante a little on Thursday, though, taking to Instagram with a cheeky hallway photo that also showed the blonde’s captioning abilities. It was an eye-catching shot, and it’s been going down a storm with Kate’s 6.2 million followers.
Kate’s photo showed her solo and in a bright hallway with mosaic-like floors and wood-paneled doorways. What appeared to be a sauna door suggested a possible spa setting, with Kate herself definitely dressed for it.
Kate had been snapped turning around for the camera, flashing hints of a black swimsuit as her white bathrobe slipped off her shoulder. The model’s blonde locks were up in a bombshell bun as she delivered a slightly cheeky gaze, with Kate also seen carrying a cup – presumably, the impetus for her caption.
“Spill the tea,” she wrote, adding a teacup emoji.
Instagram definitely threw Kate the thumbs-up for this update. The post sat at an impressive 55,000+ likes within three hours of going live.
Comments quickly poured in.
“Spill the tea? Changeup,” one fan wrote.
“Love you ❤️❤️❤️????,” another said.
Emoji turnout for this post was high, with Kate finding the comments section filled with long strings of fire, heart, and heart-eye emoji.
Kate’s recent headline-making has included both fashion and motherhood. While January saw the star need to clarify her breastfeeding comment, February saw her praised as she joined forces with Canada Goose to help save polar bears.
The latter part of January saw Kate make major headlines as she took to Instagram to clarify a comment she had made regarding breastfeeding – Kate had stated it was “sucking the energy” out of her.
Kate then posted an adorable and intimate breastfeeding photo from when Genevieve was tiny, adding:
“I want to take a minute to clarify the context of feeling pressures as a new mother and breastfeeding in the @editorialistmagazine article.”
“Every woman experiences this due to the unnecessary and unrealistic expectations that are brought into every household, mostly via social media. I certainly felt these pressures, as all women do,” she continued.
Kate continued by stating that she was saddened at society’s pressures regarding pinging back into shape post-baby.
“I tried to push myself early to get back to the gym, eat perfectly and try to achieve this alleged “snap back”. But, after realizing how ridiculous these pressures are I quickly gave myself some slack and lived in the moment as a new mother,” she added, concluding:
“I realized quickly that between breastfeeding, healing, little-to-no sleep, off-the-charts hormone changes and experiencing everything for the first time that those weight-loss pressures are extremely unnecessary, and I decided to turn my energy towards my family.”
