Kate Upton has returned to modelling.

The 23-year-old 'The Other Woman' actress, who left IMG Models in 2014 to pursue her acting career, has been signed to Next Model Management, which also represent Lucky Blue Smith, Anja Rubik and Alexa Chung, according to WWD.

The blonde beauty made her breakthrough in 2011 when she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimwear issue and has since featured on the front of prestigious publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar, as well as being named the face of beauty brand Bobbi Brown in March 2014.

However, Kate, who has starred in 'Tower Heist', 'The Three Stooges' and is set to appear in the comedy film 'The Layover', will continue to be represented by WME and LBI Entertainment for upcoming film projects.

Meanwhile, Kate - who is engaged to her baseball player beau Justin Verlander - announced the exciting news at the Met Gala in New York in March this year when she walked the red carpet with the eye-catching bling attached to her finger.

Speaking previously she said: "He asked me right before the [baseball] season started, so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while, so I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world."

And, although the couple have taken the next step in their relationship, Kate isn't in any rush to walk down the aisle.

She explained: "We are enjoying the engagement [for now]."

However, Kate's fiancé has admitted he spent many months leading up to the engagement designing the "one-of-a-kind" diamond engagement ring with the talented designer Anita Ko to resemble their "exceptional love".

The jeweller said: "Justin and I collaborated on creating the most perfect one-of-a-kind ring that is rare and of exceptional quality ... just like their love."
