Congratulations again to Kate Upton and Justin Verlander!
Upton exclusively revealed to E! News shortly before the Met Gala Monday that she and her boyfriend made it official. "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 us. "So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"
The couple dated for three years before Verlander put a ring on it, so let's look back at their adorable romance.
They Detroit Tigers star and his Sports Illustrated model ladylove got the rumor mill really swirling when they were spotted on vacation together in St. Thomas in early January 2013. Prior to that there were only whispers of them dating in July 2012. That October, her family had insinuated that they were an item, but by July 2013, the relationship had fizzled.
But as we all know, true love never dies! Upton began dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy, but they broke up in December 2013. Only one month later were Upton and Verlanded spotted together taking in a Flyers game. Their romance would take off from there. Over the course of the next few months they'd be spotted out and about together. In May 2014 the couple were adorable spotted at another hockey game, but Verlander had the unfortunate luck of getting caught staring at his now-fiancée's breasts.
