Supermodel Kate Upton is no stranger to diamonds (she's walked red carpets all over the world and modeled for countless campaigns), but last night, she was sporting a special kind of bling. At the 2016 Met Gala, Upton showed off her gorgeous engagement ring! The model, 23, who's been dating professional baseball player Justin Verlander for the past three years, wore a lovely metallic sequined Topshop gown, which complemented the solitaire she proudly showed off in photos.

From the photos, it looks like it's a large center stone in a six-prong setting, with smaller diamonds along the band. Because the couple had been keeping their happy news quiet for awhile, Upton couldn't help but gush about her engagement. "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," she told E! News. "So I'm excited to finally be able to share it with the world!"
