Kate Upton decided to share some huge news at this year’s Met Gala. The star just announced her engagement to her boyfriend, Justin Verlander, on the Met Gala red carpet. She accessorized her bespoke corseted Topshop gown, which featured metal sequins, with a very important piece of jewelry: her new giant diamond ring.
“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 told to E! News. “So I’m really excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
And share it with the world she did, indeed.
Upton stated that she and Verlander are “really enjoying their engagement” right now and have no concrete wedding plans yet. The two went public with their relationship in early 2014.
In addition to her fabulous outfit, the star even got a haircut before leaving for the Met Gala’s red carpet. Her dress was paired not only with the brand new engagement ring, but also with an ear cuff and metallic clutch.
Congratulations to Kate and Justin!
