Well, 2019 is off to an excellent start for Tim Tebow and former Miss Universe, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. On Thursday, the happy couple announced that they were engaged!
“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” Tebow shared. “You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Last December, Nel-Peters gushed to Fox News about her relationship with Tebow.
“It’s wonderful to be able to share my life experiences with somebody who’s so understanding and supportive,” she said. “He supports me in everything that I do. He’s just the sweetest person ever and it’s such an honor for me to be able to get to share my experiences with him.”
According to People magazine, the former NFL quarterback asked Nel-Peters to marry him in Jacksonville, Florida, on his family’s farm. Tebow proposed with a 7.25-carat diamond, while their families stood nearby watching.
“I’m so excited for the wedding, and I can’t wait to spend forever with Tim,” Demi-Leigh told People.
Nel-Peters also shared their engagement photos to Instagram, writing, “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 ?❤️.”
“I actually wasn’t really nervous,” Tebow added. “I was excited. I wanted everything to be perfect and to go smoothly. But I wasn’t nervous to actually ask her.”
Not only did the former NFL athlete fly in his girlfriend’s family, but he also had South African singer Matthew Mole perform “The Wedding Song.”
Their photographer, Kelly Braman, also shared some photos of the couple, captioning the post: “I’m always in awe of God & how He works.”
