You might not have known it, but it turns out that you’ve secretly had a supermodel twin all along: Kate Upton. Sure, she gets to pose on the covers of major magazines and walk the red carpet on the regular, but at the end of the day, the birthday girl (she’s 24 today!) is pretty much all of us.
Here are 12 reasons why – and spoiler alert: There are plenty of dogs and wine involved. And just a lot of overall radiance. (How is it possible for one human to glow this much?!)
1. SHE UNDERTSANDS THAT HER BIRTHDAY SHOULD BE ALL ABOUT HER
And also all about her booty. After all, they don’t call it a “birthday suit” for nothing!
2. SHE UNDERSTANDS THAT MORE TEQUILA IS THE BEST TEQUILA
We’re just going to assume that our invitation to her birthday party got lost in the mail.
3. SHE’S GOTTEN A HAIRCUT JUST TO USE THE HAIRCUT EMOJI
Who among us hasn’t gotten their hair done just so they can post a super cute picture to Instagram with a bunch of sassy emojis? Kate’s just being up-front about it.
4. SHE KNOWS THAT DOGS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER
Even things that are already pretty intensely awesome, like getting all glammed up for the Met Gala.
5. AND SHE REACTS TO HORSES THE SAME WAY THAT THE REST OF US DO
There is no such thing as chill.
6. SHE KNOWS THAT SOMETIMES REAL LIFE IS DIFFERENT THAN MAGAZINES
Yep, the picture on the right is pretty much what we look like at the pool, too.
7. SHE’S NOT AFRAID TO EMBARRASS HER FIANCé
Especially if doing so involves acting like a total goofball on national TV.
8. SHE’S BEEN KNOWN TO IMPROVISE
It’s comforting to know that even supermodels have left the house without something of vital importance and had to make do with whatever’s left in their car on occasion.
9. SHE OWNS (AND WEARS) THESE SWEATPANTS
They speak to us on a truly spiritual level.
10. SHE’S ALSO GIVEN UP ON ATTEMPTING TO EVER RECREATE THAT AMAZING HAIRDO WE SAW ONLINE LAST NIGHT
The only difference? She’s recreating the perfect updo she wore to a glamorous event the night before, and we spent three hours attempting to braid our hair based on a Pinterest tutorial.
11. SHE ONCE SPRAINED HER ANKLE CELEBRATING A CORNHOLE WIN A BIT TOO HARD
Honestly, we hope to experience that level of victory and triumph one day.
12. SHE GETS THAT SELFIES YOU TAKE YOURSELF ARE BETTER THAN THE ONES PEOPLE TAKE OF YOU
Hey, she’s a model! She understands that if you want to rack up all kinds of likes, you’ve got to make sure that the angle is on point.
13. SHE HANGS OUT WITH NASIM PEDRAD
We have also done this – it was in our minds, yes, but the point still stands.
14. SHE BELIEVES THAT WINE >>>> EVERYTHING ELSE
The fact that she proudly shows off her purple wine teeth after an all-day wine tasting is just further proof that Kate is truly a girl after our own hearts.
