RICHMOND, Va. — So, your friends did not believe you when you told them you spotted supermodel Kate Upton walking around Stony Point Fashion Park after Thanksgiving. Perhaps you thought you were seeing things due to the combination of tryptophan and her Game of War commercial airing non-stop during Thanksgiving football games.

While that might be the case, we’re pretty sure Upton, along with her boyfriend, baseball superstar and Goochland native Justin Verlander, were in town celebrating Thanksgiving with the Verlander family. Even though the power couple did a pretty good job disguising their whereabouts on social media, Justin did announce he was coming home for the holiday.

Several people, including CBS 6 employees, said they saw Verlander and Upton on Friday at the south Richmond shopping center. Other social media sightings put the couple ordering coffee at Starbucks and working out at American Family Fitness.

While Upton and Verlander did not post those updates online, they did post similar photos of their dogs — tuckered out due to Thanksgiving travel.
