Kate Upton has said being pregnant has given her “a new reason to appreciate my body”.

The model and actress is expecting her first child with husband Justin Verlander.

Sharing a picture from a lingerie photo shoot on Instagram, she wrote: “I was so sick in my first trimester and it was really hard to get through this shoot, but I’m so grateful I had such a great team around me and now I have a new reason to appreciate my body!”

Upton confirmed she was expecting with an Instagram post in July in which she displayed her growing baby bump beneath a red trouser suit.

She captioned the shot: “#PregnantInMiami.”
