It's official! Tim Tebow gets engaged to Miss Universe

Tim Tebow just announced some exciting news.

The former National Football League and University of Florida quarterback announced his engagement Thursday to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters on Instagram.

"I'm sorry you didn't get a new truck", Del-Peters told Tebow's dad, "but you're getting a new daughter!"

The website reports that couple talked about their future for a few minutes before Tim dropped to one knee and said: 'Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you.

Nel-Peters, 23, also shared the snaps to her own account, writing, "Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!" I love you and I can't wait to spend forever with you!

Once she said yes, Del-Peters' family and friends from her native country of South Africa came out to surprise her, along with Tebow's family. "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?" "I actually wasn't really nervous".

Tebow, 31, proposed with a 7.25-carat ring on his farm outside of Jacksonville, Fla., and Del-Peters said yes. "I was excited. I wanted everything to be ideal and to go smoothly".

"I'm so excited for the wedding", she told PEOPLE.

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

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

"They have to really love God", he continued.
