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.

The engagement reportedly took place at Tebow's family’s farm in Florida, according to PEOPLE. Family and friends joined the couple immediately after to celebrate.

According to People, Tebow slipped a 7.25-carat solitaire ring on her finger.

Tebow won two national championships with the Florida Gators and the Heisman Trophy in 2007.

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

Congrats Tim and Demi-Leigh!
