All the Deets About Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and American Sports Star Tim Tebow Engagement

Possibly the world’s most romantic proposal 💍

COSMO cover girl and former Miss Universe 2018, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is engaged! The 23-year-old South African beauty said ‘YES!’ when her boyfriend of seven months, former professional American football quarterback and fitness enthusiast, Tim Tebow, got down on one knee. The couple started dating in July 2018 when Demi was living in New York City as Miss Universe.

The Setting:

The proposal looked super romantic and took place at Tim’s family’s farm outside of Jacksonville, Florida. Tim popped the big question, next to lake, under a wooden arch and next to a wooden bench he had specially made for the proposal, that was engraved with the date the couple first met. There were also barrels filled with hydrangeas and greenery at the magical scene.

South African singer, Matthew Mole, then stepped out from behind a hay bale and serenaded the couple with ‘The Wedding Song’ one of Demi’s favourite songs.

Tim had also secretly flown Demi’s family and friends to Florida, to witness the exciting moment, along with his parents, siblings and friends who secretly watched the proposal from a distance.

The Cover Up:

In order for Demi to not suspect a thing, Tim told her that they would be having a belated Christmas dinner with his family. When it came to the actual proposal, Tim told Demi that he was presenting his father with a brand new truck, so that she didn’t sense his excitement and get suspicious. One thing’s for sure, Tim knows how to throw on dreamy proposal!

The Engagement Celebrations:

After the proposal, the couple’s friends and family came out of hiding to surprise starry-eyed Demi. The couple then had dinner at a Jacksonville club, with their nearest and dearest. Speeches were made and a celebratory feast was consumed. Demi’s father encouraged everyone pray for their new life together. Demi also said a few words and jokingly said: ‘I’m sorry you didn’t get a new truck but you’re getting a new daughter!’ to Tim’s father.

The IG Announcements:

The couple posted the cutest images on the gram, taken by a hidden photographer during the proposal. They also posted sweet messages, scroll down for your heart to melt a little.


‘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 💍❤️’


‘@demileighnp 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.’

The Ring:

The ring is a whopping 7.25-carat solitaire sparkler that Tim said is ‘internally flawless’ just like Demi. And, we can practically see it sparkling all the way from South Africa.

We wish Demi and Tim the absolute best for their magical future together! Let the wedding preparations begin…
