Kate Upton came to tonight’s Met Gala with one huge surprise: she and boyfriend of three years Justin Verlander are engaged!

The 23-year-old actress showed off her huge rock from the baseball player while on the red carpet:

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

They’re not in any rush to get to the alter, however. “We are enjoying the engagement period,” she said.

Hours earlier, Upton posted a pic of her on her way to the Gala:
