Tim Tebow is officially engaged.

The former Florida Gator and Heisman Trophy victor posted a series of photos on Instagram showing him proposing to his now-fiancée, 2017's Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

Tebow confirmed his relationship with Nel-Peters in July. Tebow, 31, gave her a 7.25-carat solitaire ring, according to People Magazine. The post reads, "Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!" "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you", he said.

Tebow had secretly flown Nel-Peters' family and closest friends from South Africa to Florida to witness the engagement.

Demi-Leigh was crowned Miss Universe in 2017.

The 23-year old beauty is from South Africa but now lives in NY. "I'm sorry you didn't get a new truck", she said, "but you're getting a new daughter!" "I was excited. I wanted everything to be flawless and to go smoothly. But I wasn't nervous to actually ask her".

"I'm looking, but I just can't seem to find anyone", Tebow told People a year ago. Right for quite a while, once told People the kind of woman he was searching for: "They have to really love God", he continued.

"I'm just looking for someone who has a good heart", he added at the time.

'I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful'.

"She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life", he told ESPN over the summer. 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 has maintained his role as college football analyst for the SEC Network, and he remains a minor league baseball player in the New York Mets' farm system.

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