Tim Tebow Takes A Knee To Propose To Former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

On Thursday, Tim Tebow took a knee for an entirely different reason than what first brought him to the world's attention: to propose to his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters. “Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” Tebow said in an Instagram post announcing the big news.

“You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”

In an interview last month with Fox News, Nels-Peters gave heartwarming insight into her relationship with Tebow.

“It’s wonderful to be able to share my life experiences with somebody who’s so understanding and supportive,” she said. “He supports me in everything that I do. He’s just the sweetest person ever and it’s such an honor for me to be able to get to share my experiences with him.”

Tebow, who first rose to fame as the kneeling NFL quarterback, asked Nel-Peters to marry him on his family's Jacksonville, Florida farm.

“I’m so excited for the wedding, and I can’t wait to spend forever with Tim,” Demi-Leigh shared with People Magazine.

“Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all," she wrote in her own Instagram post. "I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you! @timtebow 💍❤️.”

“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.”
