Tim Tebow couldn’t help not gush about his fiancée, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, saying she’s “incredibly special” and that they are truly “blessed.”

“[Being engaged] is awesome. It’s so incredible, and we’re so blessed,” the 31-year-old former National Football League player shared Monday with US Weekly at his movie premiere for “Run the Race.” (RELATED: Here’s The Advice Tim Tebow Gave Tom Brady About Looking After Aaron Hernandez)

When asked what made his girlfriend, the former Miss Universe, “the one,” he said, simply, “Everything.”  (RELATED: Tim Tebow Is Driving Up All-Star Ticket Prices. Is His MLB Debut Closer Than Ever?)

“We’re so aligned in what matters most to us and we get along so well,” Tebow explained. “She’s so incredibly special … I almost can’t even put it into words.”

The sweet comments come on the heels of reports last month after the New York Mets outfielder announced that he had asked Nel-Peters if she would marry him.

“@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,” Tebow captioned a handful of snaps on Instagram of he and his bride-to-be.
