Many people got engaged over the holidays. Including Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith, Stephen Fry and Elliot Spencer. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden got married, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha McCauley got married (and, possibly, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis got married). According to a new report, there was one more proposal although the couple did not get engaged.
According to Star Magazine, Justin Verlander proposed to girlfriend Kate Upton as they spent the holidays together but she said no. Justin “didn’t have the happiest of holidays this year” says a source because Kate “turned down his marriage proposal.”
The Detroit Tigers pitcher “got down on bended knee on New Year’s Eve and was stunned when… Kate said thanks but no thanks.” The source revealed the reason Kate allegedly said no. It’s over money. “Kate’s well aware of the fact that supermodels almost always make less money the second they get married, so she told him to ask her again in a year.” She’s worried that she will earn less as a model if she’s off the market.
Justin was “red-faced” and upset at being rejected. But Kate is “so confident in her relationship… she knows Justin will wait.” She feels they will get married at some point but not now. She would “just rather be a girlfriend for right now.”
