Sorry, boys! Kate Upton is officially off the market. The 23-year-old bombshell attended this year’s Manus x Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology Met Gala, and while her bespoke Topshop gown was a little bit underwhelming compared to Claire Danes’ magical dress and Beyonce’s fierce latex gown, she had the best accessory of all — a sparkling engagement ring!
Kate happily announced that she and boyfriend Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers are engaged. Apparently, the lovers have been engaged for quite some time now but they have been keeping it secret. And what better way to announce the engagement than on the biggest fashion event of the year?

Kate’s gorgeous sparkler is from jeweler Anita Ko, who designed the ring with Justin to create a unique piece. The ring features a huge solitaire diamond on the center, surrounded by pave-styled smaller diamond stones on the setting and all over the band. After she debuted it at the Met, Kate was finally spotted wearing the ring in public. This is definitely one accessory to show off proudly!
