Kate Upton feels ''so lucky'' to be married to Justin Verlander.

The Sports Illustrated model tied the knot with the baseball star in a romantic ceremony in Tuscany, Italy over the weekend and took to social media on Monday (06.11.17) to share the first public picture of the couple's happy day.

Captioning the photo of the pair walking down the aisle as man and wife, 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)''

Whilst Justin captioned the same picture on his own Instagram account: ''Happy wife happy life! What an amazing beginning to our journey together! @kateupton #justmarried (sic)''

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old model had previously revealed she was finding wedding planning ''super stressful''.

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.''

And when Justin and Kate got engaged last year, the baseball star was keen to create a ''one-of-a-kind'' engagement ring that resembled their ''exceptional'' love, according to jeweller Anita Ko.

She shared: ''Justin and I collaborated on creating the most perfect one-of-a-kind ring that is rare and of exceptional quality ... just like their love.''

Whilst Kate added of the engagement: ''He asked me right before the [baseball] season started, so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while, so I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world.''
