Tim Tebow won two rings starring for the Florida Gators more than a decade ago.

Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, aka Miss Universe 2017, are getting married.

The 31-year-old Tebow posted photos of himself down on one knee and 23-year-old Nel-Peters wearing an engagement ring.

Tebow was previously linked to fellow Miss Universe victor, Olivia Culpo, in 2015.

In an Instagram post, Tebow wrote "Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world".

All Jericho needs to do is come to terms on a new deal. "Some situations, it's case-by-case", Cody said. We definitely don't want to shut doors - there's no reason too.

In 2017, Tim expressed his desire to find "the one", telling People magazine, "I'm looking, but I just can't seem to find anyone".

"She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life", the professional baseball player shared at the time. Then, he asked her to marry him.

Nel-Peters was born and raised in South Africa and now lives in New York City. "I don't want to be single; I'm ready to settle down and start a family". Grateful for an incredible year and everyone I got to share it with. I want to have kids.

"They have to really love God", he continued. According to People, South African singer Matthew Mole was also on hand to sing the newly engaged couple one of their favorite tunes - "The Wedding Song".

After playing for Denver, the New York Jets, Philadelphia and a stint during the preseason with New England, Tebow gave up football and began training for an attempt at the Major Leagues.
