She’s a beaming future bride! Model-turned-actress Kate Upton and her fiance, Justin Verlander, enjoyed a cozy date-night on Tuesday, November 8, and the model couldn’t help but show off her stunning engagement ring.
Detroit Tigers pitcher Verlander, 33, posted a cute photo of his future wife, 24, grinning and posing for the camera with her chin in her left hand. The image calls attention to Upton’s striking, round-cut, diamond ring on its diamond pave setting.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model memorably revealed her engagement news this past May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York City. Upton walked the red carpet of the celebrity-beloved annual affair with a suspiciously large ring on that finger. She later confirmed the news to E!
“I’m really excited,” she remarked at the time. “He asked me right before season started so we’ve been keeping it on the down low for quite a while. So, I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
She shared, however, that they’re taking their time with wedding planning. “We are enjoying the engagement period,” she told the site.
Like many other celebrity couples, Upton and Verlander paired up this past Halloween to coordinate costumes. The future spouses went as Sandy and Danny from Grease, and even showed off their dance moves on Instagram.
