It wasn’t on the football field, but Tim Tebow just took a knee.
Around sunset on his family farm in Florida, the former Heisman winner got down on one knee, told his girlfriend, former Miss Universe winner Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, her loved her. Then, he asked her to marry him.
Unlike the NFL teams Tebow wanted to play for, she said yes.
Following the proposal, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on Nel-Peters’ finger. “This ring is internally flawless,” he said. “Just like you.”
To make the moment even more special, Tebow had flown Nel-Peters’ family and closest friends on hand from South Africa to witness the engagement. They, along with his parents, siblings and friends watched the proposal from a distance without Nel-Peters knowledge.
“I actually wasn’t really nervous,” Tebow told PEOPLE. “I was excited. I wanted everything to be perfect and to go smoothly. But I wasn’t nervous to actually ask her.”
Tebow said he’s looking forward to planning the wedding and that he can’t wait to marry his bride-to-be.
“I’m so excited for the wedding, and I can’t wait to spend forever with Tim,” Nel-Peters said.Read the full story at People
