Tim Tebow Is Engaged to Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

It's official: Tim Tebow is off the market, ladies and gentlemen.

A month before minor leaguer Tim Tebow heads to spring training with hopes of making it to NY with the Mets in 2019, the outfielder/former quarterback/SEC Network host popped the question to Miss Universe 2017, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Tim Tebow last Saturday.

The former Heisman Trophy victor first confirmed they were an item last July during his appearance on ESPN.

The engagement reportedly took place at Tebow's family's farm in Florida, according to PEOPLE. The post reads, "Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!"

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.

The 23-year old beauty is from South Africa but now lives in NY.

"I actually wasn't really nervous", Tebow tells PEOPLE. No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person. "I was excited", he said.

Tebow tells PEOPLE that he's looking forward to planning the wedding.

Tebow wanted to make sure every detail was flawless - and he went through great lengths to surprise Nel-Peters. "My faith is important to me - it's the most important thing - and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith".

'She is a really special girl and I am lucky and blessed for her coming into my life, ' he told ESPN past year. Despite leading the Broncos to a win over the Steelers in the first round of the 2012 playoffs, Tebow was traded in the offseason to the Jets.

Tebow, who led the Gators to a pair of national championships and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, has been working for ESPN's SEC Network while playing minor league baseball for the New York Mets organization.

Tebow is expected to start this season with the Mets' Triple-A affiliate in Syracuse.
