Tim Tebow is off the market.
The former NFL quarterback proposed to his girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters on Wednesday (January 9) at his family's farm outside of Jacksonville, Florida, People reports.
"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world," Tim captioned a photo of his proposal that showed him on one knee as he looked up at his shocked bride-to-be. "You're the love of my life, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you." The 23-year-old former Miss Universe also shared photos of their engagement on Instagram, captioning the pics: "Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you! @timtebow 💍❤️."
Following his proposal, an excited Tim told People that he’s already looking forward to planning their wedding. "I’m sure she’s got some great ideas," he said. "It’s going to be really exciting, and I can’t wait." Demi added: "I’m so excited for the wedding, and I can’t wait to spend forever with Tim."
The 31-year-old football player turned baseball pro confirmed he was dating Demi, who is from South Africa originally, in July. "She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life," he told ESPN. "I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful." A month later, Demi posted a sweet birthday message to Tim on Instagram, writing, "Happy Birthday Timmy ❤️ You are such a bright light in so many people’s lives. Have the best day ever!"
