On Monday, the American model introduced the world to Ania, her Russian look-alike, through a tweet.
"Amazing," Upton wrote of the photograph in which Ania imitates the model's latest Sports Illustrated cover wearing nothing but a fur hooded jacket under the title "Me as Kate Upton."
Two days after being discovered, Ania, 22, became an overnight sensation. She was interviewed by Sports Illustrated and even received a shout out from a magazine encouraging the blonde beauty to put her similarities to Upton to good use.
"Hopefully @Huliganjettaa started new meme by copying @KateUpton's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit pic Kateing? Uptoning?" wrote Mentality Magazine.
An appreciative Ania thanked her fans for their support via Twitter.
"Thank you for the compliments re: my breasts," she wrote.
