23-year-old supermodel Kate Upton is officially off the market. The Sports Illustrated and Vogue cover girl took to last night’s Met Gala red carpet to confirm the ongoing rumors that she and her longtime boyfriend Justin Verlander plan to tie the knot.
Upton, who has been dating Verlander for more than three years, showed off her huge diamond ring at the annual fundraising gala, following in the footsteps of fellow model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who announced her engagement to actor Jason Statham at this year’s Golden Globes.
Finally addressing celebrity gossip about her future plans with the Detroit Tigers pitcher, Upton told E! News that he asked her to marry him before the baseball season started, stressing how excited she was to share the good news with the entire world.
When she was asked about the wedding date, Upton said that she’s in no hurry to walk down the aisle, adding that they are currently ‘enjoying the engagement period.’
