(Gray News) – Tim Tebow and his girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters are engaged.

“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world,” Tebow posted on Instagram. “You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”

After she said yes, the 31-year-old Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat diamond solitaire ring on her finger on the Florida farm where he grew up, People reported.
