Tim Tebow takes a knee ... to ask his girlfriend to marry him

Tebow, 31, confirmed to ESPN in July that he was dating Nel-Peters. "You're the love of my life, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you", Tebow said in the post.

People noted that Tebow proposed to his lady at sunset on his family's farm outside out of Jacksonville, Florida. Nel-Peters wrote to her future husband online. They joined his family to watch the proposal from a distance so Demi-Leigh wouldn't suspect anything.

'I was excited. I wanted everything to be ideal and to go smoothly. The post reads, "Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!"

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.

"I'm looking, but I just can't seem to find anyone", Tebow told People a year ago.

Tebow tells PEOPLE that he's looking forward to planning the wedding. "My faith is important to me - it's the most important thing - and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith". "Of course, it's important to be attracted to someone, but it really needs to be about who they are on the inside", he said.
