Kate Upton’s trainer Ben Bruno has got to be one of her biggest fans. He shared a workout video of the three-time SI Swimsuit Issue cover star with an adorable special guest.

The video began with a throwback clip from March 2020 of Upton doing backwards lunges while carrying her then-infant daughter in her arms. The second half of video featured a present-day snippet of the 30-year-old holding now 4-year-old Genevieve. She kissed her daughter’s forehead in both of the clips captured three years apart.

Upton and her husband, New York Mets pitcher Justin Verlander, welcomed their daughter in November 2018.

“I always preach progressive overload to my clients and urge them to gradually bump the weight up over time,” Bruno wrote on March 7. “I’d say @kateupton nailed it. Her daughter is growing quickly though, so this could get really tough in a few years ❤️😂.”

The joint post was shared with Upton’s 6.5 million followers and the trainer’s 280,000 fans. She wore athletic shorts and a pink tank top in the first clip and donned a matching blue tie-dye leggings and sports bra set in the next video.

“Awwww ❤️❤️❤️,” singer Rita Ora chirped in the comments.

“Thats a true definition of progressive overload🔥💪🏽🤩,” one fan quipped.

“Hmm. . . I could try this with my 15 year old,” another joked. “He’s about 5 inches taller than i am though so it may be kinda awkward 😂.”

“Go momma go!!!” someone cheered.

“My knees are creaking and hurting just watching,“ another wrote.

Bruno has a star-studded client list including other notable celebrities like Genie Bouchard, Phil Rosenthal and Chelsea Handler.
