Kate Upton dropped Instagram’s jaw on Wednesday, taking to the platform to show off her sensational post-baby body. The 27-year-old model and actress welcomed her first baby Genevieve in November 2018.
While Kate has spoken out about the post-baby pressures – the body-positive model fully slammed “ridiculous” expectations earlier this year – she was nonetheless looking incredible as she caught some rays aboard a yacht in a teeny tiny orange bikini. The blonde likely drew the eye with her killer curves, but her caption didn’t fall short, either – this girl comes with wit.
Kate posted two photos. Both showed the “Sports Illustrated” star looking fantastic aboard a yacht backing onto scenic ocean waters, distant hills, and blue skies with light clouds.
Eyes were likely on the hottie in the foreground, though. Kate was seated on a wood-paneled and white-painted surface as she soaked up the sun, flaunting her jaw-dropping curves in a two-piece that was definitely minimal. The cleavage-flashing was pretty full-on, but the vibe was relaxed as Kate smiled from under a woven tan visor.
A quick swipe to the right showed Kate in the same setting. Here, less of a chest display was being made as Kate snuggled her legs up to her chest, but the carefree feel remained as Kate was seen holding a cocktail with a wedged orange – the beverage was seen sitting in front of the model in the first image.
Kate also wore tinted shades, plus hoop earrings. Her red-painted toenails added chic vibes – fitting for the ritzy yacht setting.
Kate took to her caption to mention the orange theme and nautical setting: “Enjoying some vitamin sea ?,” she wrote.
Kate’s post racked up likes in no time – over 100,000 had been clocked before the update was an hour old, with comments coming in fast.
“Hot mama!” one fan wrote.
“Ma’am seems like you are back in the modeling thing?,” another added.
Kate hasn’t abandoned modeling since becoming a mother. While the racy bikini looks are less frequent, Kate’s career as model has continued to grow, with the star having recently been unveiled as the new face of outerwear brand Canada Goose.
Kate made headlines last month as a photo of her breastfeeding an infant Genevieve appeared on her Instagram – Kate was clarifying a comment she’d made stating that breastfeeding was “sucking the energy” out of her.
“I want to take a minute to clarify the context of feeling pressures as a new mother and breastfeeding in the @editorialistmagazine article. When asked about getting back in shape after pregnancy I discussed the major pressures that are out there for new moms to “snap back” right after having a baby,” Kate wrote.
Kate added she felt those pressures, then encouraging women to focus on the joys of motherhood over panicking about getting back into shape – Kate herself admitted that she’d pushed herself “early” to get back in the gym.
