Talk about the ultimate red carpet accessory! Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton revealed she’s engaged to longtime boyfriend Justin Verlander by debuting a shiny rock on the Met Gala red carpet Monday night in New York. 

The dazzling diamond ring was the perfect complement to her one-shoulder sparkler of a gown. “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,” 23-year-old Upton told E! News about her engagement to the 33-year-old Detroit Tigers pitcher.
