Former Gators quarterback Tim Tebow is engaged

The vocally Christian star athlete popped the question to his girlfriend, former Miss Universe and Miss South Africa victor Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, on Wednesday afternoon - and she said yes, of course!

"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world", Tebow posted on Instagram.

The website reports that couple talked about their future for a few minutes before Tim dropped to one knee and said: 'Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you.

Tebow confirmed his relationship with Nel-Peters in July.

After the proposal, as a touching surprise organised by Tim, South African singer Matthew Mole appeared and serenaded the couple with their favorite song The Wedding Song. "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".

Once she said yes, Del-Peters' family and friends from her native country of South Africa came out to surprise her, along with Tebow's family.

Nel-Peters, 23, also posted some photos for her 1.3 million followers.

Adds Nel-Peters: "I'm so excited for the wedding, and I can't wait to spend forever with Tim".

Tebow, a former star at Nease High School, has reportedly been seeing Nel-Peters for about two years.

Tebow, who has been looking for Mrs. Tebow told People that he's excited to get the planning process started, but he's mostly excited to have Nel-Peters by his side for the rest of his life. I have so many things I want.
