Who doesn’t love Kate Upton?
The free-spirited, drop-dead gorgeous model / actress has a personality that anyone would love to be around with, and since she has a good sense of humor as well, a guy being able to have her to spend the rest of his days with a talented and ridiculously-attractive godsend such as herself is like winning the lottery, or in this case, hitting a home run.
And as it turns out, somebody did hit a home run as Detroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander got Kate Upton to be engaged to him. And in case you’re not hearing that, that’s the sound of a million hearts breaking.
Yes, Kate Upton is now engaged to the baseball player after three years of dating as Verlander sealed the deal with a simple but timeless engagement ring that is sure to drop jaws. And get this, the Detroit Tiger helped in designing the ring for his fiance, which makes the whole thing even more special.
”It appears to be a round, brilliant cut diamond, we think it’s about 7 or 8 carats,” said David Wachler of the Wachler Estate Collection who is weighing in on the rock. ”We think it is about seven or eight carats but it could be 10 carats. If it’s cut well it’s probably around seven carats.”
”It looks very white, looks very clean,” Wachler added. ”We sell a diamond of that size anywhere from $125,000 to $250,000. If you’re buying it from a place like Cartier or Tiffany it could be in excess of $300,000.”
Kate Upton and Justin Verlander follow a list of popular celebrities who hooked up with people from America’s favorite pastime. This include Madonna and Jose Canseco, Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez, Hannah Davis and Derek Jeter, and of course, perhaps the most iconic of them all – Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio.
