Sorry ladies, Tim Tebow is off the market!

The former Florida Gators star and Heisman Trophy winner announced on Thursday that he's engaged to his girlfriend and former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

"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," Tebow said in the post, which included photos of him down on one knee.

Tebow won two national championships with the Florida Gators in 2006 and 2008, and also won the Heisman Trophy in 2007.

After several years in the NFL with the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, he made the transition to baseball, where he's currently signed with the New York Mets organization in their minor league system.

23-year-old Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is from South Africa and was the 2017 Miss Universe.

Congrats Tim and Demi-Leigh!
