Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander and actress/supermodel Kate Upton are officially engaged, as Upton showed off her engagement ring at the Met Gala in New York on Monday.

She confirmed the engagement to E! News, saying: "I'm really excited; he asked me right before the season started so we've been keeping it on the down low for quite a while. So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"

Detroit did not play Monday. Verlander is expected to take the mound Tuesday, for the first time since the engagement was made public, against the Cleveland Indians.
