Kate Upton announced her engagement to her boyfriend of three years, Justin Verlander at the Met Gala on Monday. Justin is a professional baseball player for the Detroit Tigers. The model/actress wore her engagement ring for the first time at the event after the baseball player asked her to marry him just before his baseball season started. The Detroit Tigers star worked closely with designer Anita Ko to ensure the ring was perfect for his lady.
Verlander, 33, and Upton, 23, have dated for more than three years. While some in the public eye may try to hide their personal lives, this couple never hid from the spotlight. That doesn’t mean the two shared every detail about their relationship, however.
“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,” Upton said, per E! News. “So I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
