Kate Upton got a marriage proposal on Friday, but it wasn't from her baseball boyfriend Justin Verlander. No, it was from the Orlando Magic's mascot Stuff the Dragon.
Rumors have been revving up for weeks that the Sports Illustrated model and Detroit Tigers pitcher are dating again after a long break. And the good-looking couple finally answered fans' questions when they cozied up recently at a Super Bowl party in NYC. But it wasn't Verlander who popped the question this weekend. It was an adorable green dragon!
Sure Stuff has silly pink wings. And his blue eyebrows are kinda bushy. But that kooky smile gets girls every time.
We're not quite sure how the green dragon has so much cash available, but he was able to give Kate Upton a beautiful diamond engagement ring.

This isn't the first time an unlikely suitor has propositioned Kate Upton. In March 2013, high school senior Jake Davidson created a video proposal to Upton asking her to go to prom with him that May. In a video that quickly went viral, the high-school student stood shirtless explaning why they'd make a good match. "I'm Jewish, 5'9" on a really good day –- and I can't dance. At all," Davidson told Upton in the video. "You're Christian, 5'10", and that Cat Daddy video should have won an Oscar for best short film. You could say this is destiny."
"I'm going to be real with you here, I don't have a girlfriend," Davidson admitted. "Kate, great moments are born from great opportunity. And that, is what you have here today. A chance to make a nice guy's senior year the best ever."
Davidson wasn't giving up easily. He continued, saying: "Kate, we can ride around all night long -- till 11, that's my curfew. But really, it would mean the world to me if you came and I would do anything to make sure you get here."
At first, Upton said she would actually attend the prom in Los Angeles. But she soon reneged saying her schedule was too busy. "But I really appreciate being asked," Upton told People. "It made me feel really great."
Now we're a little worried that Kate Upton will break off her engagement to Stuff the Dragon. Kate, it isn't easy being green. So, please, let your fiancé down gently!
