South African beauty queen Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is set to tie the knot with her American boyfriend, Tim Tebow
The former Miss Universe took to Instagram on Thursday to reveal that she is engaged.
She shared pictures from the proposal, which took place at Tim’s family farm in Florida.
One image showed the former NFL quarterback down on one knee as he presented her with a 7,25-carat solitaire ring.
“Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you!” Demi wrote. Her post received over 100 000 likes in one hour.
Tim also shared the same pictures on his Instagram account.
“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world. You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you,” he gushed.
According to People magazine, Tim popped the question on Wednesday
He went all out for the proposal, going as far as to have the date they met engraved on a bench set up near a lake on his family’s property.
“This ring is internally flawless. Just like you,” he reportedly told Demi-Leigh as he popped the question.
Several celebrities, including Ayanda Thabethe, Kim Engelbrecht, Jo-Ann Strauss, Rolene Strauss, Basetsana Kumalo, Minnie Dlamini and Lee-Ann Liebenberg, were some of the first to congratulate Demi on her exciting news.
“So happy for you,” Rolene wrote.
Basetsana added: “Congratulations @demileighnp wishing you endless days of pure bliss.”
Demi-Leigh made their relationship Instagram official in August last year
“Happy Birthday Timmy. You are such a bright light in so many people’s lives. Have the best day ever!” she wrote in a sweet birthday post dedicated to Tim.
News of the couples romance first surfaced in July after Tim told ESPN about the “special girl” in his life.
“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life. I am usually very private with these things, but I am very thankful,” he said.
The couple spent Christmas with Demi-Leigh’s family in Cape Town and headed back to the US in the new year.
It looks like Demi will be starting a new life in America with the man of her dreams.
