Oddmakers look past Tim Tebow’s engagement and offer bets on his wedding and when he and his bride-to-be might have a bouncing baby ballplayer.

<p><strong><em>Queue song: “When You Wish Upon a Star.”</em></strong></p><p><em><strong>Best TV Ad Salesman voice:</strong> “</em>Heisman Trophy winner and legendary virgin Tim Tebow, you just got engaged to former 2017 Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters! What are you going to do now?”</p><p><strong><em>Tebow:</em> </strong>“We’re going to Disney World!”</p><p>What else would you expect a Florida man and his fiancée to do?</p><p>The happy couple went to the “happiest place on Earth” to celebrate their day-old engagement, complete with a photo of in front of Cinderella’s castle with the Princess and Prince Charming.</p><p>Thankfully the Disney characters were in costume or we wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference between the two couples. We kid, we kid.</p><p>The former quarterback for the NFL’s Denver Broncos and New York Jets, two-time BCS champion QB with the Florida Gators and now a ballplayer in the New York Mets organization proposed at sunset Wednesday at his family’s farm outside Jacksonville, FL.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Congrats on your engagement, &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/TimTebow?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@TimTebow&lt;/a&gt;!

Of course, with the engagement announcement comes with a few snicker-worthy tabloid stories about the still-chaste Tebow. Heck, Deadspin announced the engagement with the headline: “Tim Tebow To Have Sex Soon.” The former QB's commitment to remaining a virgin until marriage is well-known and reportedly was cited as the break-up reason by prior girlfriend, Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012. (Sensing, a trend?)</p><p>Tebow has long been committed to finding a partner who shares his faith and outlook. “They have to really love God,” he explained to People a few years ago about his perfect companion. “My faith is important to me — it’s the most important thing — and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith.”</p><p>By dating outside the galaxy, Tebow appears to have struck gold in the 23-year-old Nel-Peters. The two met at a 2017 “Night to Shine” event in South Africa, which is a series of prom nights Tebow’s foundation throws for special needs teens.</p><p>What else do you need to know about the woman who stole Tebow’s heart while breaking the heart of many women in the University of Florida Gator Nation:</p><ul> <li>She has a degree in business management</li> <li>She was once carjacked and now supports efforts to teach self-defense to women</li> <li>Her disabled half-sister is her inspiration</li></ul><p>Nel-Peters’ half-sister Franje attended “Night to Shine” where he and Demi-Leigh “met and started talking through that and haven’t stopped.” Tebow explained on NBC’s “Today” show.</p><p>So first does come love, bet on the marriage and you can also wager on the couple's baby carriage.</p><p><strong>Will Tim Tebow Announce He Is Having A Baby in 2019?</strong></p><ul> <li><strong>No</strong> -500</li> <li><strong>Yes</strong> +300</li></ul><p>Though the proposal came after a seemingly whirlwind relationship, but he’ll be back on a ballfield by Spring, which we surmise will push the wedding past October, so our money is on baby announcement in early 2020.</p><p><strong>Our Pick</strong>: No</p><p><strong>Will Tim Tebow Get Married in 2019?</strong></p><ul> <li><strong>No</strong> +240</li> <li><strong>Yes</strong> -400</li></ul><p>Now that he's found the one, we don't believe the Golden Gator will have a long engagement.
