After several years of dating, Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds are finally making things official. According to the Jasmine Brand, the NFL Hall of Famer recently popped the big question and Tracey gladly accepted. Now, Deion wants the world to know just how much Tracey means to him.

A couple of days ago, the former Dallas Cowboys defensive back took to Instagram with a breathtaking photo of himself and Tracey as they looked out to sea. Deion Sanders explained how he’s grown over the years and thanked Tracey for supporting him over the last few years. It’s no secret Deion Sanders and his ex-wife, Pilar, had a very messy divorce that consisted of ongoing feuds over their finances and children.

After 11 years of marriage, things took a tumultuous turn for the worse. There was even a time when Pilar ended up behind bars and ultimately lost her right to see her three children with Deion.

In fact, the two were embroiled in a heated child custody battle for years. In the Instagram post, Deion alluded to his previous relationship and possibly other acquaintances, although he did not mention his ex-wife by name. He recalled many disheartening moments in his life where there was “stealing, manipulation, plotting, sabotage, ignorance, anger, jealousy, bitterness, and hatred.” However, Deion has made it clear he’s in a much better place now.

“I’ve grown so much thru this journey we call life & at this age & stage I just want my Peace and someone to share it with along with all the blessings God has for me. @traceyeedmonds thank u for being you & having my back and loving me for ME not Prime but ME.”

Deion Sanders went on to explain how Tracey Edmonds changed his life for the better.

“You made my yesterday memorable, my today unforgettable and my tomorrow Manageable regardless of what I face because of your presence. You’re a real woman baby a grown woman. The 1st time is saw u I knew u were it.”

#Realtalk When you've seen so much mess,lying,cheating, stealing,manipulation,plotting, sabotage,ignorance,anger,jealousy,bitterness and hatred you're faced with options to let Go & let God or travel thru life enclosed in a CONDOM whereas u can feel pleasure but u can't get infected with any of the previous BULL JUNK i mentioned earlier. I clearly chose to Trust God while using my full body size Condom which ain't right by any means. What I'm really saying folks is the foolishness of Yesterday ain’t today so when u see the real thang and u know it's real,stop playing GRAB a hold of it & Secure it,Protect it,Love it,Cover it & Pray for it consistently. I've grown so much thru this journey we call life & at this age & stage I just want my Peace and someone to share it with along with all the blessings God has for me. @traceyeedmonds thank u for being you & having my back and loving me for ME not Prime but ME. You know I don't play with TIME or Certain words so when I say "I LOVE U THEN U BETTER BELIEVE I LOVE U BABY" and anybody that knows me knows I don't play about those 3 words. You made my yesterday memorable, my today unforgettable and my tomorrow Manageable regardless of what I face because of your presence. You're a real WOMAN BABY A GROWN WOMAN. The 1st time is saw u I knew u were it. If I could sing like @babyface I would start singing right now. LOLOLOLOL 1st time I came over. Lololol. 1 Truth @revjahwar @tferg3
