Tim Tebow proposes to Miss Universe, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters

Tim Tebow proposed to girlfriend and former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters in Jacksonville on Wednesday.

The former University of Florida Heisman Trophy quarterback – who went on to play in the NFL before turning to television (current SEC Network host) – while playing baseball with the New York Mets organization, popped the question at his family’s farm in Jacksonville, according to PEOPLE magazine.


“The couple strolled along the property, and stopped next to a small lake, where Tebow had installed an arbor and a specially made bench that was engraved with the date the couple first met.”

For about five minutes, Tebow and Nel-Peters talked about their relationship and its future in hushed tones before Tebow, 31, dropped to one knee. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you,” he said. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?”

As Nel-Peters said yes, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger. “This ring is internally flawless,” he said. “Just like you.”
