The 23-year-old revealed the happy news as she walked the red carpet. She said that she is really excited.

According to her, Verlander asked her right before the season began. She added that’s why they have 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!” she said.

However, Upton and Verlander aren’t in any huge rush to say “I do.” She said that they are enjoying the engagement period.
