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, an American professional baseball pitcher for Detroit Tigers, are engaged.

“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,” Kate told E! News about their engagement. “So I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”

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 at 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.
