Tim Tebow is finally engaged and it’s to his girlfriend Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a South African Miss Universe. The engagement news was broken on PEOPLE and it reportedly went down on the family farm outside Jacksonville where Tim lives. It sounds like Tim put some serious amount of time preparing for the engagement because he went to great lengths to pull it off.
The couple strolled along the property, and stopped next to a small lake, where Tebow had installed an arbor and a specially made bench that was engraved with the date the couple first met.
For about five minutes, Tebow and Nel-Peters talked about their relationship and its future in hushed tones before Tebow, 31, dropped to one knee. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, I love you,” he said. “Demi Leigh Nel-Peters, will you marry me?”
As Nel-Peters said yes, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger. “This ring is internally flawless,” he said. “Just like you.”
Tim Tebow is 31; his future bride is 23. Demi-Leigh added this afternoon on IG: Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you! @timtebow 💍❤️.
By now you know that Tim had trouble during the dating stage like when Olivia Culpo broke up with him reportedly because he wouldn’t have sex with her. By now you know that Tim has been super loyal to his virginity. According to a 2015 report, men in the U.S. — on average — lose their virginity at 16.9 years old.
