Tim Tebow Gets Engaged to Former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Tim Tebow is engaged, his new fiancee announced on her Instagram page, complete with a photo capturing the moment.

The website reports that couple talked about their future for a few minutes before Tim dropped to one knee and said: 'Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you.

The former Heisman Trophy victor first confirmed they were an item last July during his appearance on ESPN. Tebow, 31, gave her a 7.25-carat solitaire ring, according to People Magazine.

Nel-Peters, 23, also shared the snaps to her own account, writing, "Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!"

People reported that the proposal was made on Wednesday night outside Tebow's family's farm in Jacksonville, Florida. "But I wasn't nervous to actually ask her".

After the engagement, the couple's friends and family came out of hiding to the shock of Nel-Peters, who had no idea that her family and friends had flown halfway around the globe to attend the engagement party.

Nel-Peters was born and raised in South Africa and now lives in New York City. (They call that lying where I'm from, Tim).

"I'm looking, but I just can't seem to find anyone", Tebow told People a year ago. "I don't want to be single; I'm ready to settle down and start a family". I have so many things I want.

"She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life", he told ESPN over the summer.
