Happy 24th birthday, Kate Upton! The model-turned-actress has already fit a successful Hollywood career into a few short years. She was discovered in 2008 at a modeling casting call in Miami, and appeared in campaigns for Guess, Victoria’s Secret, and Dooney & Burke before landing the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition in 2011.

The model then transitioned into the acting world, appearing in the 2014 film The Other Women alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as a married man’s lovable but ditsy girlfriend. And she’s not done in Hollywood yet—Upton will appear in three films this year alone: The Masterpiece, Wild Man, and The Layover.

The model ended her contract with IMG Models in 2014 to focus on her acting career, but she recently signed with Next Model Management, marking a comeback in the modeling world as well. And as for her personal life, Upton announced her engagement to MLB pitcher Justin Verlander at this year’s Met Gala, showing off a stunning diamond ring.
