Tim Tebow has been under the spotlight lately.
His Foundation is hosting its fifth annual “Night to Shine,” a prom for disabled children, he’s about to release a feature film, and his baseball career is taking off.
And what just happened to Tim Tebow this year will warm your heart.
Tim Tebow just got engaged to the winner of the 2017 Miss Universe Pageant, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
The two had been dating for 5 months before Tebow popped the question.
The former NFL quarterback proposed to Nel-Peters at sunset on Wednesday at his family’s farm outside of Jacksonville, Florida, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal.
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.
For about five minutes, Tebow and Nel-Peters talked about their relationship and its future in hushed tones before Tebow, 31, dropped to one knee. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you,” he said. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?”
As Nel-Peters said yes, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger. “This ring is internally flawless,” he said. “Just like you.”
Nel-Peters said that Tebow “exceeded” all her dreams in an Instagram post about the engagement:
And Tebow called her “the love of my life” in his own Instagram post:
