PEOPLE Magazine Awards: Kate Upton Tells Boyfriend 'You're Welcome' for Her Sexiness

Posted on

Why would Kate Upton apologize for being sexy?

The smoking hot model picked up the statuette for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Woman at the first-ever PEOPLE Magazine Awards on Thursday night, but she had to acknowledge the awkwardness in store for her younger sibling.

“I’m so, so sorry to my 18-year-old brother,” she joked during her acceptance speech. “Poor David!”

Still, she knows there’s one guy thrilled with her sultry status: boyfriend Justin Verlander, 31, a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers.

“Um, you’re welcome, Justin,” Upton, 22, added with a laugh.

Not that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl is always looking hot.

Asked about her latest least sexy moment backstage, she replied, “Oh, this morning.”

“It was ugly. I almost posted an ‘I woke up like this’ [photo] but I didn’t want to be so truthful,” she told PEOPLE. “Who’s pretty at 4 a.m. unless they’ve been out all night?”

Beyoncé may beg to differ, but from the rest of us mere mortals: preach.
