Bad news for all you delusional heterosexual men out there who have been holding out hope of one day running into Kate Upton at, like, an airport or something, and using your chivalry and folksy charm to win her heart. The buxom Sports Illustrated swimsuit model is officially off the market.

Upton has been dating Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander since 2012, and we knew things were serious when they took the ALS ice bucket challenge (hey, remember that?) as a couple. Now the two are officially engaged.

They went public with the news at the Met Gala in New York on Monday night. Upton walked the red carpet in a gorgeous gold gown with a rock on her finger that you can see from space.

Upton confirmed the betrothal to E! News.

“I’m really excited,” she said. “He asked me right before the 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!”
