Kate Upton is engaged and Justin Verlander is the luckiest man alive

Publish date:

The Met Gala is known for outrageous fashion and celeb extravagance but it's Kate Upton's ring finger that's all the talk. That's right -- Kate is officially off the market and engaged to longtime boyfriend Justin Verlander.

The Tigers pitcher popped the question in March but the two have kept the engagement a secret. “I’m really excited," Kate told E! as she walked the red carpet. "He asked me right before season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while."


We tip our hat to Justin because Kate has been looking hot, hot, hot as of late, thanks in part to her doughnut-assisted exercise routine (or the more grueling doughnut-free version). We wonder what the rest of the Met Gala has in store.
