Former Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and his longtime supermodel girlfriend Kate Upton were married Saturday at an old church at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco Resort in Italy, web site TMZ reported.

On Monday, the proud newlywed Verlander tweeted out a wedding photo: "Happy wife happy life! What an amazing beginning to our journey together!"

Not to be outdone, Upton also shared her happiness on Instagram.

Just three days earlier Verlander had won his first World Series title with the Houston Astros, who had acquired Verlander in a trade with the Tigers.

Upton was born in St. Joseph, Michigan. Her uncle is Fred Upton, who has served as a U.S. congressman from Michigan for 30 years.
