Tim Tebow is getting hitched!

"She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life", the professional baseball player shared at the time. "Family. Friends. @demileighnp", Tebow captioned his post.

Tebow wanted to make sure every detail was ideal - and he went through great lengths to surprise Nel-Peters. Tebow told People that he's excited to get the planning process started, but he's mostly excited to have Nel-Peters by his side for the rest of his life.

Here's what we know about the future Mrs. Tebow including where you might recognize her from and how her half-sister, who was born with a physical disability, plays such a huge role in her life. 'They have to be kind, and they have to care about people who can't do anything for them in return'.

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

Tebow tells PEOPLE, now, that Nel-Peters is exactly what he has been looking for.
