Tim Tebow gets engaged to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Tim Tebow gets engaged to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

As Tim Tebow's chances of reaching the big leagues look favorable heading into next season, that won't be the only major development in the Heisman Trophy winner's life. I love you and I can't wait to spend forever with you!

As Nel-Peters said yes, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger.

Nel-Peters, 23 is Miss Universe 2017.

"Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!"

It was a special moment for the couple, and for Tebow's whole family, considering he did it on the Florida farm where he grew up, in front of family, friends and loved ones all there to see!

The couple, first linked over the summer, recently celebrated the holidays together, including South Africa native Nel-Peters' first traditional Thanksgiving.

Tebow said that he hid his excitement by telling Nel-Peters that he was presenting his father with a new truck at a belated Christmas dinner.

According to PEOPLE, Tim, 31, got down on one knee by a lake during a sunset stroll and Demi-Leigh said yes. "I don't want to be single; I'm ready to settle down and start a family".

"I actually wasn't really nervous", Tebow tells PEOPLE. "No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person". "I am usually very private with these things, but I am very thankful". "I'm really blessed to have her by my side for the rest of my life".
