When will Justin Verlander and Kate Upton get married? The Houston Astros pitcher and his fiancée continue to delay their wedding plans.

Justin Verlander was his usual dominant self during Game 6 of the American League Championship Series at Minute Maid Park on Friday night. He pitched seven shutout innings and allowed just five hits as his Astros won to force a decisive Game 7.


And, of course, Upton was cheering on her fiancé from a stadium suite. She was also there for his 13-strikeout complete game in Game 2, when he gave up just one run in an Astros victory.

In fact, Upton has supported Verlander throughout the season. He began the year with the Detroit Tigers, who he had played with over a decade. As the Tigers dropped out of the playoff picture, they began to entertain trade offers for their star pitcher.

Forty minutes before the trade deadline, the Tigers agreed to a deal with the World Series-contending Astros. But Verlander first had to agree to waive his no-trade clause. And he admitted that Upton helped him come to this career-altering decision.

"Thank goodness my fiancée Kate was there," Verlander told Pardon the Interruption last month. "It made my decision a lot easier. … Finally, I'm still pacing and I just kind of stop and I looked at Kate and I go 'Screw it; We're going to Houston.' And she's like 'Heck yeah.' You know I'm kind of trying to say the right language here. But she says 'Heck yeah, we're going,' and that was it. That was the decision." 

But while Verlander and Upton's relationship is stronger than ever, they are in no rush to tie the knot. The couple got engaged last year, and with Verlander's busy schedule, Upton has had to do most of the wedding planning. But she keeps procrastinating.


"Well, I would say that I am delaying everything about weddings," Upton told Access Hollywood in August. "The planning process is really difficult and ... all of my friends, I'm like so sick of answering their questions. They’re like ‘Oh can I have this? Can I have that? Oh can I bring this plus one?' I’m like no! You just met her!”

Upton also admitted she hasn't picked out her wedding dress yet. But she scouted possible gowns at the Pronovias 2018 bridal show.

"I like it all, so maybe [I'll have] multiple dresses," Upton told ETOnline. "Maybe a nice long sleeve, and then also the big tulle one. I think that I always like to add a little flair of sexuality to any outfit I'm wearing."

Still, Upton has made it clear that her frustration with wedding planning has nothing to do with her feelings for her fiancé. "I'm really excited about the engagement and I'm really excited about getting married," she told Extra. "It's just the wedding planning sucks."


And Upton has thought about some details of her wedding. "We want a destination wedding, like we're taking our friends and families on a vacation and we're having a great time, and we just happen to get married," she said in June. She also said she wants " a lot of flowers," even though her fiancé is allergic.
