Tim Tebow is getting hitched.

The former Florida quarterback and Heisman victor proposed to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Del-Peters on Wednesday, People Magazine reported Thursday.

"My half-sister was born without a cerebellum and is completely disabled", Nel-Peters said via E!

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.

The engagement reportedly took place at Tebow's family's farm in Florida, according to PEOPLE.

"Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world", Tebow wrote.

"I'm so excited for the wedding, and I can't wait to spend forever with Tim", Nel-Peters said. He flew Nel-Peters' family and several friends in from South Africa so they could witness the proposal and celebrate afterward.

Filmaker Joshua Rofé directed the docuseries, while Academy Award victor Jordan Peele was executive producer. In 2016, he was profiled on the REELZ series , "Scandal Made Me Famous".

'I don't want to be single; I'm ready to settle down and start a family.

Tebow told PEOPLE about his feelings before the big moment. "I was excited", he said.

"Any dreams I've ever had, you've exceeded them all!" I love you and I can't wait to spend forever with you!

Tebow often shares images with Nel-Peters on his account.

"I'm just looking for someone who has a good heart", he added at the time.

'I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful'.

"It really has to go deeper than what they look like on the outside".
