Damn, bros. You know that girl you always hoped you’d marry one day? Kate Upton. Yeah, that sizzling SI cover babe? Welp, sounds like your stars weren’t mean to align, if reports are to be believed. It seems that Upton is now engaged to her longtime squeeze, Detroit Tigers hurler, Justin Verlander. Guess we should’ve seen this one coming, eh? E! News broke the story of the couple’s engagement:
It’s official: Kate Upton is off the market!
The model-actress is engaged to longtime boyfriend Justin Verlander, E! News can exclusively confirm. The 23-year-old bride-to-be debuted her stunning engagement ring, designed by her fiancé, on the red carpet at the 2016 Met Gala.
“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 exclusively. “So I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
Kate and Justin aren’t in any huge rush to say “I do.” For now, “we are enjoying the engagement period,” she said.
Verlander is one lucky man… Congrats to both Kate and Justin on the engagement. All the makings of a total power couple for years to come.
