Justin Verlander & Kate Upton’s daughter steals the show during Astros’ World Series celebration

It was a family affair.

Justin Verlander nabbed his second career World Series title Saturday, the stylish capper to a Cy Young-caliber season. And as the Astros hurler hugged and grabbed his teammates after the Astros’ momentous victory, he was joined by the two most important figures in his life: his wife, supermodel Kate Upton, and 3-year-old daughter, Genevieve.

Dad and daughter shared a precious moment, rocking back and forth as the party — which included many young families — got started on the infield grass.

It was just the start for young Genevieve, who continued to show flair as she appeared with her dad on Fox Sports’  postgame show.

While Verlander was discussing the trials and tribulations that had led him to this point, Genevieve was waving hi to her mom.

Eventually, Genevieve won out (with a little help from David Ortiz) in getting Upton onto the set to share just how proud she is of Verlander. It was a cute, heartwarming, real moment in the fever dream that was Saturday’s World Series celebration.

You can’t ask for much more than that.
