Kate Upton has joined the slew of celebrities taking to Instagram to honor its weekly “Thirsty Thursday” hashtag. The 27-year-old model and actress has mostly made headlines for shying away from her former trademark itty-bitty bikinis since welcoming first baby Genevieve in November 2018. The mold was more than broken at the end of February, though – that sizzling orange bikini likely hasn’t forgotten.
Yes, we’ll be including it.
Kate updated her Instagram on Thursday with a fun and leggy photo reminding fans that her post-baby body is just as hot as ever.
Kate’s photo went down the classy route. The blonde had been photographed indoors and resting on the edge of a surface in a room with white flowers, wall moldings, and a nearby lamp. Eyes were likely on the hottie herself, though.
Kate was looking to her side as she sat in a chic mauve blazer – matching micro shorts afforded a suit feel to the button-detailed jacket, but the model’s killer legs were likely drawing the eye. Kate posed holding a china coffee cup, also using her caption to play on it.
“So I hear it’s #ThirstyThursday… ☕️,” she wrote.
Kate’s update definitely didn’t go unnoticed, bringing in comments and likes quickly – the latter sat at over 44,000 by the time the update was 50 minutes old.
“Hello legs ?,” one fan wrote.
“Bombshell,” another said.
“Damn fine coffee and hot,” a third added.
Kate was also called a “perfect beauty,” although many fans opted down the emoji route – fire, heart, and heart-eye ones proved popular for this update.
The leggy display contrasts the decidedly covered-up looks Kate has been seen in of late – the model is the new face of outerwear brand Canada Goose, with a fair few updates having shown the beauty bundled up in the brand’s bulky jackets.
Kate made headlines at the end of February for updating her Instagram aboard a yacht and in a miniscule orange bikini. The photos of Kate flaunting her sensational post-baby curves proved wildly popular, with fans also loving that the orange bikini, cocktail with orange wedge, and matching shades came captioned: “Enjoying some vitamin sea” as the star caught some rays.
On a more serious note, Kate found herself getting real earlier this year after a comment she made stating that breastfeeding was “sucking the energy” out of her left her needing to clarify her comment.
Following her comment, Kate took to Instagram with a throwback photo of herself breastfeeding Genevieve. Her caption slammed societal pressures.
“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.
The model continued by adding that she herself had felt the pressures. Kate then encouraged mothers to focus on the joys of motherhood over panicked frenzies about pinging back into shape.
