Kate Upton made a big reveal on the red carpet at the Met Gala on Monday night.

The 23-year-old model debuted her massive engagement ring from fiancé and Detroit Tigers righthander Justin Verlander, who recently proposed.

“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,” Upton told E! News. “So I’m excited to finally be able to share it with the world!”
