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

Tim Tebow is getting hitched!

The football and baseball pro is engaged to his girlfriend, Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

"My half-sister was born without a cerebellum and is completely disabled", Nel-Peters said via E!

Tebow, 31, confirmed to ESPN in July that he was dating Nel-Peters.

The engagement reportedly took place at Tebow's family's farm in Florida, according to PEOPLE.

In an Instagram post, Tebow wrote "Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world". I love you and I can't wait to spend forever with you!

Once she said yes, Del-Peters' family and friends from her native country of South Africa came out to surprise her, along with Tebow's family. "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?"

"I actually wasn't really nervous", Tebow told PEOPLE. "I was excited. I wanted everything to be flawless and to go smoothly", Tebow explained.

The couple strolled along the property, and stopped next to a small lake, where Tebow had installed an arbor and a specially made bench that was engraved with the date the couple first met.

Tebow often shares images with Nel-Peters on his account. "I love you and I can't wait to spend forever with you", said Nel-Peters. I have so many things I want.

The University of Florida alum said he's also excited to plan the wedding, with Demi-Leigh echoing his sentiments. Then, he asked her to marry him.

"They have to really love God", he continued.
