WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — One of the world's most eligible bachelors is off the market.
Former Florida Gators star and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow is engaged.
Tebow posted a photo on Instagram of him on one knee, popping the question to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, the 2017 Miss Universe from South Africa.
"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world," Tebow wrote. "You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you."
Tebow won two national championships with the Gators before being drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2010. Tebow ultimately left football for the broadcast booth and pursued a career in baseball. His professional career began with the St. Lucie Mets in Port St. Lucie in 2016.
