Breaking: Tim Tebow ‘happiest man in the world’ after announcing engagement to Miss Universe 2017

Woman the world over might well wake up disappointed today: Tim Tebow is officially off the market.

Confirmed by his Instagram, the former Heisman Trophy winner proposed to girlfriend of six months, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, and she said yes.

Nel-Peters is known for winning Miss Universe in 2017, and posted herself to reveal how happy she was at becoming Tebow’s fiance …

According to reports, Tebow flew Nel-Peters’ family from South Africa (where she’s from) to Florida to witness the engagement, whilst keeping the event a mystery from his soon-to-be-wife by way of telling her he was surprising his dad with a new truck.

The former NFL quarterback, who has made headlines for his tremendous acts of charity over the past few years, reportedly had a bench installed at the spot where he got down on one knee. On said bench was carved the date the couple first met.

After Nel-Peters said yes, a 7.25-carat solitaire ring was slipped onto her finger, before South African singer Matthew Mole stepped out from behind a hay bale and serenaded the couple with “The Wedding Song,” – another surprise Tebow had organized.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Tebow said: “I actually wasn’t really nervous. I was excited. I wanted everything to be perfect and to go smoothly. But I wasn’t nervous to actually ask her.”

In the immediate aftermath of the engagement, the couple’s friends and family came out from their hiding places to further shock Nel-Peters. The couple and their loved ones then had dinner at the Jacksonville club, with speeches and toasts made by those closest.

Nel-Peters told Tebow’s father during the speeches: “I’m sorry you didn’t get a new truck, but you’re getting a new daughter!”

We wish the happy couple all the very best in the future, and hope that Tim Tebow enjoys the romance he deserves!
