Tim Tebow engaged to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Tebow x Nel-Peters

The former Florida quarterback and Heisman victor proposed to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Del-Peters on Wednesday, People Magazine reported Thursday. "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you", he said.

The former Heisman Trophy victor first confirmed they were an item last July during his appearance on ESPN. South African singer Matthew Mole stepped out from behind a hay bale and serenaded the couple with The Wedding Song, one of their favorite songs.

The two went public with their relationship in July 2018 with the athlete telling ESPN, "She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life". Family and friends joined the couple immediately after to celebrate.

People reported that the proposal was made on Wednesday night outside Tebow's family's farm in Jacksonville, Florida.

Tebow often shares images with Nel-Peters on his account.

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

"I'm sorry you didn't get a new truck", Del-Peters told Tebow's dad, "but you're getting a new daughter!"

'I don't want to be single; I'm ready to settle down and start a family.

"I'm just looking for someone who has a good heart", he added at the time. "I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful".
