Kate Upton and Justin Verlander almost missed their own wedding because the baseball player had to play in the World Series.
Kate Upton and Justin Verlander were late to their own wedding.
The Sports Illustrated model tied the knot with the baseball player in a romantic ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, earlier this month but they have admitted they almost missed the whole thing as the Houston Astros pitcher was required to play in the baseball World Series.
Speaking on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', the 34-year-old sportsman said: ''There's only one thing that could throw a huge wrench in our plans. It's not the World Series - it's going to game seven of the World Series.''
The 25-year-old beauty added: ''Guess where we went?''
However, although they weren't there, the couple still got to see their wedding venue in all its glory as their friends and family FaceTimed them from the sun-soaked location.
Kate said: ''Everybody's in Italy, everyone's at the venue. We had an event that night and everyone's texting us like, 'Your wedding's so pretty, wish you were here.' ''
Justin added: ''We got taken around our wedding via FaceTime.''
The blonde bombshell announced that she had married Justin on Instagram at the beginning of the month when she shared a picture of them walking down the aisle.
Captioning the photo of the pair just moment after exchanging their vows, Kate wrote: ''I feel so lucky that I got to marry my best friend!! @justinverlander Thank you to our family and friends for making this weekend so fun and magical! (sic)''
Justin captioned the same picture on his own account: ''Happy wife happy life! What an amazing beginning to our journey together! @kateupton #justmarried (sic)''
However, although they were excited to become husband and wife, Kate admitted before the big day that she was struggling to get all the plans in place.
She said: ''The whole thing is really stressful ... Ultimately, you think whenever you're getting married that your wedding is just going to be this magical moment and people just show up. Later you realise, 'Oh, I have to pick out everything and I'm planning this,' and that's the sucky part ... It's gonna be a good date no matter what. As long as we're surrounded by friends and family ... They're so many dresses and designers it's been fun to look around. I'm excited to finalise everything.''
Justin proposed to Kate last year following two years of dating.
