Kate Upton has landed on the cover of another issue of Sports Illustrated. If you’re thinking to yourself that it’s too early for another edition of the Swimsuit Issue, you’re right. But since the model has the same last name as two Atlanta Braves players, she’s on the cover of SI’s MLB playoffs preview issue.
On the cover, Upton is seen sitting between brothers B.J. and Justin Upton, who play for the playoff-bound Braves. She is wearing clothes, though, dressed in a full Braves uniform.
The three had a fun time posing together, according to the magazine. They also posed in the Atlanta dugout, with Upton wearing a jersey that reads “Can’t hit on me.”
Other than sharing a last name with the Upton brothers, the Michigan-born Upton has nothing really in common with the Braves. She did once date a baseball player, but that was Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander (who will also be seeing action this postseason, coincidentally).
Last week, it was confirmed that Upton is dating Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She’s also been linked to other athletes, Mark Sanchez and Blake Griffin. She has appeared on the cover of SI’s Swimsuit Issue two years in a row.
