Kate Upton Brings Major Engagement Bling to the Met Gala Like It's NBD

We look at the Met Gala and think "fashion! art!" and generally, most of the celebs attending seem to agree. But Kate Upton looked at the 2016 Met Gala and thought "engagement announcement!" and used the red carpet to debut a giant, gorgeous ring -- meaning that she and Justin Verlander have finally decided to tie the knot.

It's almost as if the dress is an accessory to the ring -- it's TOO perfect that the sleeveless side is on the left and that the glittery silver is the EXACT right shade to go with a gigantic diamond, right? We see you, Kate Upton. And we dig it.

Justin Verlander is a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers, and he's been blessed enough to date Kate for three years. Kate told E! Online that he asked her just before his baseball season started, and that they've been saving the announcement for the Gala. Also, that they don't have any wedding plans yet, and they're just "enjoying the engagement period."

We won't rush them. Congrats, you two!
