The Heisman Trophy victor announced his engagement on Instagram Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South Africa native and the 2017 Miss Universe.

Reports say Tebow surprised Nel-Peters by telling her he wanted to meet for a belated Christmas dinner and that he would be giving his father a new truck. In the caption of the post, he professed his love for her.
He also included a photo of the two embracing as the bride-to-be showed off her diamond ring.
"Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!"
Added Nel-Peters: "I'm so excited for the wedding, and I can't wait to spend forever with Tim". "It's going to be really exciting, and I can't wait".
