Love looks good on Kate Upton. The model and actress announced that she and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander are engaged to be married at the Met Gala on Monday night, and she's clearly elated by the news. Following the ball, Upton was spotted leaving the Bowery Hotel on Tuesday morning, and she looked happier than ever.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model flashed her gorgeous ring as she stepped out with her adorable pooch. Keeping it casual, Upton opted for pink leggings, which she teamed with a coordinating pink tee, leather moto jacket, sneaks, and black sunnies.

Upton opened up about how excited she is to be engaged to Verlander on the Met Gala red carpet. "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. One thing's for certain—the future Mrs. Verlander is going to make one beautiful bride.
