Supermodel Kate Upton, who married Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander last fall, has been bestowed another honor this week. Upton, who is easily one of the most famous models in the world, has been name the hottest woman in the world, per Maxim.

Each year, Maxim puts out what it calls its "Hot 100" list. This year, Upton was given the cover of the magazine. The issue doesn't hit newsstands until next week, but apparently, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Ivanka Trump and Melania Trump all made the list.

Upton's shoot appears to have been taken place in Israel.

Upton gushed about Verlander to Maxim in an interview to celebrate the honor:

"I got to marry my best friend," she says. "He's an amazing man. He's so supportive and focused and motivated, and he inspires me every day. I'm so very lucky that he's my husband." The two aren't afraid of sharing their love publicly (they regularly post loving pictures on Instagram) and appear to have quite the normal relationship, despite Verlander taking his team to the World Series last year and, well, Upton being one of the most beautiful women on the planet.

Upton shared photos from the shoot on Instagram. She also shared a photo of the cover.

It'll be interesting to see if any athletes - or their significant others - make the list this year.
