The Astros aren’t just out here winning the World Series and fulfilling 3-year-old prophecies, but also love is in the air in Houston. Obviously, the big story everybody will be talking about is Carlos Correa setting the proposal bar for every other man in America at an impossible height last night after he proposed in front of America, but don’t sleep on Kate Upton and Justin Verlander.
These two have been engaged for about a year and a half now and it sounds like they’re finally going to lock it down for good this week. That means they’ll be skipping out on the World Series parade in Houston on Friday.
Sources confirm to 7 Action News that Verlander and his fiancée, Kate Upton, will get married this week in Italy.
The wedding will come just days after Verlander won his first World Series with the Houston Astros. That means Verlander will miss the Astros’ world series parade in Houston.
The couple has been dating for years and got engaged in May 2016. Upton was first spotted with the engagement ring on the red carpet of the MET Gala.
I have a feeling Astros fans won’t mind too much. I think they’re more worried about celebrating this championship with the homegrown guys like Springer, Altuve, and Correa more than the guy who came in for the last 3 months of the season, even if he was a huge part of it.
Also, there’s no doubt this has been planned for months and there was a zero percent chance anything was going to change that.
Jon Heyman confirmed the report last night
