There’s a new celeb baby update! Model Kate Upton gave birth on Nov. 7. The new mama and her hubby, baseball player Justin Verlander, picked the sweetest name for their new little love: Genevieve Upton Verlander. Simple, classic and elegant. We love it!

Upton and Verlander married last November and announced their baby bliss in July. The couple notably wed days after Verlander, pitcher for the Houston Astros, helped his team win last year’s World Series. Now, they have another awesome reason to celebrate!

Well now it looks like Verlander is even luckier. On his birth announcement via Instagram, the proud new dad wrote, “Welcome to the world Genevieve Upton Verlander. You stole my heart the first second I met you!!!” Aww.

While the couple hasn’t spoken publicly about why they chose the name, they did share completely cute pics on Instagram. Along with Verlander’s post and photo of baby Genevieve’s teeny tiny hand (seriously, is there anything cuter than that?), new mom Upton posted her own pic of her brand-new baby.

Now the only question remains: do they pronounce it like “Jenna-veev” or the traditional French pronunciation, “Jzawn-vee-ev?” Either way, their little girl’s name is magnifique!
