Kate Upton is engaged to longtime boyfriend Justin Verlander. She flashed her dazzling diamond ring at the MET Gala last week — a “one-of-kind” ring befitting the model slash actress. When it comes to her wedding date, Upton shared that it’s still up in the air.
E News reported that the 23-year old confirmed her engagement to Verlander and shared how excited she was to finally announce it to her fans all over the world. She explained that she was Verlander’s fiancee for quite some time now. “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 exclusively. “So I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
When it comes to the wedding date, Upton shared that there is no rush to tie the knot yet. She said they are just enjoying the time being engaged.
According to jewelry designer Anita Ko, Verlander is very hands-on with the design of the ring. Verlander made sure the rock can aptly demonstrate their raging love for each other. “Justin and I collaborated on creating the most perfect one-of-a-kind ring that is rare and of exceptional quality…just like their love,” Ko told E! News.
The vice president of final jewelry company Ritani, Mark Keeney claims that the band seemingly features a round eight-carat diamond “set in a six prong setting with even more diamonds throughout,” as reported by Yahoo News. Of course, the ring is not cheap. Keeney estimated that the ring costs around $1.5 million!
She also posted a picture of herself at the MET Gala looking sophisticated and regal in her glittery silver dress and the much-talked about diamond ring. This earned her congratulatory wishes from her reporters.
Verlander is a starting pitcher for the Detroit Tigers. He once revealed to Forbes magazine that despite how big Upton is in the entertainment and fashion industry and he in the world of sports, he and Kate have a “normal relationship.”
