Kate Upton may be off the market again as she was spotted cuddling up to Detroit Tigers pitcher, Justin Verlander.

Model Upton has appeared on a number of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues.

The pair was spotted at a pre-Super Bowl party, the 2014 GQ Super Bowl Party to be precise, in New York on Friday (31st January). Upton and Verlander have been romantically linked before but this is the first time photographic evidence of the two, seemingly enjoying spending time together if their smiles are anything to go by, has been seen. The New York Daily News was the first to report on Upton and Verlander's possible rekindled relationship.

Upton recently split up with her boyfriend, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The couple started dating in June of 2013 but their busy schedules prevented them from spending quality time together, as Us Weekly reported at the time. The couple announced their separation in December 2013 and a source, speaking to the entertainment website, said "They are really good friends still and speak all the time, but their schedules just made it too difficult and it fell apart, [Chmerkovskiy] has a lot of respect for her, but it just wasn't working anymore." Chmerkovskiy, 12 years older than 21-year-old Upton, has been a professional on Dancing With the Stars since 2006, appearing alongside his brother Val Chmerkovskiy.

Whilst Upton was enjoying her evening with Verlander, Chmerkovskiy was spending the night at the Leather & Laces party also in New York. Also in attendance were Brooklyn Decker, Paris and Nicky Hilton, and Perez Hilton. The GQ and Leather & Laces parties were just one of dozens going on across the city in preparation for the Super Bowl today (2nd February).
