Model Kate Upton was selected as People magazine’s first Sexiest Woman Alive, a month after Chris Hemsworth received the sexiest man honor.

Upton, known for her Sports Illustrated swimsuit covers and her part in “The Other Woman,” was honored at Thursday’s People Magazine Awards, an inaugural event held in Beverly Hills.

“This is such an honor to me because sexy to me means someone who's confident and happy, and that's the person I always strive to be," Upton told the audience.

She also handed out a joking apology to her 18-year-old brother and told her boyfriend, baseball star Justin Verlander, “You’re welcome, Justin.”

Afterward, Upton explained to ET Online that she thinks about her brother and how he feels about her getting such an award.

“Imagine being an 18-year-old boy and having your sister be called sexiest woman,” she said afterwards to ET's Insider. “He’s so sweet, though; he never complains.”

When the interviewer joked that her brother is probably really popular with his friends, Upton answered, “When I’m home, he’s very respectful. I have to say, he’s literally like a dream brother. No friends are allowed except for the ones I’ve known since they were like 7 years old.”

Upton told People after the ceremony that it was an “awesome” award, and then answered when asked what was the least sexy thing she’d done this week. http://www.freep.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2014/12/19/kate-upton-sexiest-woman-alive/20633501/

“This morning. It was ugly. I almost posted I woke up like this, but I was not feeling truthful,” Upton said. “I woke up at like 4 a.m. to get here. Who’s pretty at 4 a.m. unless they’ve been out all night?”

The blonde beauty’s career is going well, and the People award can’t hurt. This year, Upton, 22, made it on to the Forbes list of the 10 highest paid models. She apparently grossed $7 million from June 2013 through June 2014.
