Tim Tebow is off the field-er-market!

The former National Football League quarterback just got engaged to Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South African model and Miss Universe 2017.

On Thursday, the Mets prospect and Heisman Trophy victor announced his engagement to beauty queen Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

Tebow and the 2017 Miss Universe victor first confirmed their relationship in July.

Tebow, 31, proposed with a 7.25-carat ring on his farm outside of Jacksonville, Fla., and Del-Peters said yes. "You're the love of my life, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you", Tebow wrote.

Tebow and Peters made headlines just before the holidays with reports that New York Mets outfielder had invited his girlfriend to spend Thanksgiving with his family. "I'm sorry you didn't get a new truck", she said, "but you're getting a new daughter!" "I was excited", he said. "I actually wasn't really nervous". I have so many things I want.

Tebow told PEOPLE about his feelings before the big moment.

The University of Florida alum said he's also excited to plan the wedding, with Demi-Leigh echoing his sentiments.

"She is a really special girl, and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life", the former Jet said then.

'I'm just looking for someone who has a good heart, ' he explained.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy victor is now a member of the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the New York Mets' AA team.
