It’s Tebow time! Former college football sensation Tim Tebow is engaged to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
Tebow proposed on Wednesday, January 9, in Jacksonville, Florida, at his family’s farm. The former NFL quarterback and Nel-Peters shared photos from the romantic moment, which took place outdoors underneath an arbor and the swoon-worthy natural backdrop of a lake.
“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” Tebow declared via Instagram Thursday. “You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
The model added, “Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you!”
According to People, he delivered a few simple phrases to pop the question. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you,” he said. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?”
Tebow dropped to one knee with a massive 7.25-carat solitaire ring. He added, “This ring is internally flawless. Just like you.”
Photographer Kelly Braman Photography documented the moment. Clearly, ultra-prepared for the moment, Tebow also had several additional surprises in store including a performance by singer Matthew Mole, who delivered a rousing rendition of “The Wedding Song.”
Nel-Peters, a native of South Africa, was crowned Miss Universe 2017.
Her side of the family was also on hand to witness the sweet moment, as well as Tebow’s parents and siblings. “I actually wasn’t really nervous,” Tebow said. “I was excited. I wanted everything to be perfect and to go smoothly. But I wasn’t nervous to actually ask her.”
