Tim Tebow is getting hitched! The all-star athlete officially announced his engagement to girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters alongside a series of joy-filled photos of the happy couple.
“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” Tebow stated with the photos. “You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Tim Tebow announced his relationship with the former Miss Universe in July of 2016, saying “She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life.”
Tebow, who has been looking for Mrs. Right for quite a while, once told People the kind of woman he was searching for: “They have to really love God,” he continued. “My faith is important to me — it’s the most important thing — and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith.”
“It really has to go deeper than what they look like on the outside. Of course, it’s important to be attracted to someone, but it really needs to be about who they are on the inside,” he said.
Demi-Leigh was crowned Miss Universe in 2017. According to People, she received her bachelor’s degree in business management from North-West University in South Africa, where she was born and raised. She now lives in New York— and she’s fluent in both English and Afrikaans.
