Kate Upton: Engaged to Justin Verlander!

Justin Verlander is only 2-2 with a 5.46 ERA thus far in the 2016 Major League Baseball season.

But whatever. Who cares? We can just hand the Detroit Tigers pitcher the Cy Young Award anyway.

Kate Upton: 2016 Costume Institute Gala

Because there's absolutely no chance any other hurler has a better year ahead than the one Verlander is about to have...

... considering Kate Upton is now his fiancee!!!!!

Indeed, the gorgeous model walked the red carpet of Monday night's 2016 Met Gala with a shiny dress on her slamming body and an even shinier ring on her left-hand finger.

You can see it if you look closely at the photo above.

(Note to all men looking at the above Kate Upton photo: her left hand is down a bit and off to the side of where you're looking at the moment. See it now?)

Upton confirmed this exciting news in a red carpet interview with E! News.

"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 the outlet.

"So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"

Let's take another look at that rock, shall we?

Upton's ring leads our following rundown of very large celebrity engagement rings:

When might the stars, who have been dating for over three years, exchange vows?

 For now, "we are enjoying the engagement period," Upton said.

No wedding date or venue has been set.

Can Upton share the secret to their romantic success?

"For us, we always try and work on our communication," she says.

"We're very open with one another and we're each others best friends. He's definitely my best friend, so I think that helps a lot."

Take note, fellas.

Seriously, stop ogling and take note! Sheesh!
