Justin Verlander and Kate Upton to marry following World Series win

Justin Verlander was instrumental in helping the Houston Astros win their first World Series championship in franchise history.

Reports suggest Justin and Kate will head to Europe this week and become man and wife within days, although they will have one more big sporting event to attend first, as officials in Houston, Texas have scheduled the Houston Astros' victory parade for Friday afternoon (03Nov17). The high-power duo got engaged just before the 2016 baseball season and announced the happy news to the world at the 2016 Met Gala, where Upton debuted her one-of-a-kind ring, designed by Verlander and jeweler Anita Ko.

This was exactly what Justin Verlander had in mind when he made the hard decision to accept the Detroit Tigers' trade to the Houston Astros two months ago.

Upton had the right to opt out of that deal for free agency after the World Series. Particularly as it is being held in Tuscany, Italy, according to reports. The three-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover model has been a noticeable presence in this year's playoffs, and she caused a run on a throwback Mitchell & Ness Astros sweater after wearing one during the ALCS and again during the Series.


There's been no word from Verlander or the Astros about whether he'll be missing the parade to celebrate his nuptials.

In May, Upton told People that her dream wedding gown was "something that's classic, with a sexy twist".

"He's a lover, not a judger", Upton said.
