Justin Verlander Credits Kate Upton With Saving Him From Depression

Justin Verlander fully credits his wife, Kate Upton, with saving his life.

The 35-year-old baseball pro has gone through several years of ups and downs, suffering from severe athletic injuries, but says that his relationship with the 26-year-old supermodel has brought him through.

“Who knows, if I’m even here if it wasn’t for her?” Verlander said in a new interview with Bleacher Report. “She was instrumental in me not… like, jumping off a bridge. I was depressed and kind of just upset at the world and trying to hide my own s**t. F**k, man. She was what I needed.”

Upton also opened up about her husband’s health struggles, adding, “It was so emotional. He was in so much pain, and he was just trying to find the best path back.”
