It's official! Tim Tebow gets engaged to Miss Universe

Tim Tebow is officially engaged.

The former National Football League quarterback proposed to Nel-Peters at sunset on Wednesday at his family's farm outside of Jacksonville, Florida, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal. From the looks of the snaps, Tebow got down on one knee in a picturesque field, where some floral decor set the scene.

"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world", Tebow stated with the photos. "Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you", he said.

The couple, first linked over the summer, recently celebrated the holidays together, including South Africa native Nel-Peters' first traditional Thanksgiving.

The Heisman Trophy victor - who confirmed he was dating Demi-Leigh in July past year - had installed a specially made arbor along with a bench engraved with the date the couple first met. "Family. Friends. @demileighnp", Tebow captioned his post.

Demi-Leigh was crowned Miss Universe in 2017.

'I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful'. "No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person".

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

Tebow said that he hid his excitement by telling Nel-Peters that he was presenting his father with a new truck at a belated Christmas dinner.
