No, that is not the sound of a million wolves howling into the dead of night, that is the sound of a million women weeping that Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander finally popped the question to longtime girlfriend supermodel actress Kate Upton. 

We feel you, Tina. 

At last night's Met Gala, Upton showed off her massive rock to E! on the red carpet for the first time. She told the correspondent that Verlander asked her before the baseball season started so they have been keeping it quite for a few weeks now. 

The couple has been dating for about three years now, so we've had time to process we're actually excited for the couple, who spend tons of time here in Detroit. For those who don't know, Upton is from St. Joseph, though she know calls New York City home and actually admits to being a Yankees fan.

Good luck, guys. We mean, congratulations!
