The World Series champ admits that "it's all kind of weird" how much his life changed in just a few weeks.

It's been a big month for Justin Verlander!

Just days after the Houston Astros pitcher won the World Series, Verlander jetted off to Italy to marry Kate Upton. 

On Friday's Today show, the 34-year-old athlete -- dressed in a burgundy suit -- joined the morning show co-anchors to talk about all his big wins. "We just had a couple days to decompress," he said of marrying Upton so quickly after the World Series. "Honestly, it’s kind of weird."

Upton was also at the Today show for moral support and waved to cameras from the audience.

Verlander gushed that at his games, it's his new wife that is his biggest fan. "After the games, she always asks me, ‘Did you hear me?’” he said in praise of the 25-year-old supermodel. 

The couple have been together since 2014, announcing their engagement at this year's Met Gala in New York City. ET spoke with Upton in May, where she filled us in on the types of dresses she was hoping to wear on her special day. She ended up going with a stunning white lace, long-sleeve dress.

"I think that I always like to add a little flair of sexuality to any outfit I'm wearing," Upton said. "My grandparents get Sports Illustrated...they've seen it."
