It's official: Kate Upton is engaged! Looks like Upton and long-time boyfriend Justin Verlander are ready to walk down the aisle. The supermodel couldn't keep it a secret any longer and flashed her GIANT engagement ring to E! live on the Met Gala red carpet.
Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton just made a big revelation on the Met Gala red carpet. Upton took the opportunity as she chatted with E! News about her Met Gala look live on the air, to make the big reveal. Playing coy to the cameras, the model kept her bling hidden behind her clutch until asked point blank if she had something she wanted to share with the crowd at home. Upton gleefully revealed the massive sparkler gifted to her by boyfriend, and Detroit Tigers pitcher, Justin Verlander. And it's about time! The couple has been together since 2012, and recently reunited after a short separation.

"I'm really excited, he asked me right before season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while," she told E! News. "So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"
Wearing a metallic long one-sleeved Topshop dress (very on trend considering the evening's Manus vs. Machina theme), Upton was the picture of happy bride-to-be as she made her way up the historic Met Gala stairs. The model was seriously channeling screen sirens of decades past with her sultry Veronica Lake waves.
One thing's for sure, this is going to be one sultry bride-to-be! We're already dreaming of what the gorgeous model will wear to say her "I dos!"
