Former NFL quarterback-turned-Minor League Baseball player Tim Tebow is promoting his new book This Is the Day, and during a recent interview he revealed how he met his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
Tebow said his new book, This Is the Day: Reclaim Your Dream. Ignite Your Passion. Live Your Purpose, is about ceasing the day and living out one’s God-given potential. On Tuesday, the Heisman Trophy winner told the “Today” show that his new romance with Nel-Peters is a product of him ceasing the moment.
“We actually met through one of our nonprofits called Night to Shine,” Tebow told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
Night to Shine is a worldwide event sponsored by the Tebow Foundation for people with special needs.
“Her sister has special needs, so we invited them to Night to Shine in South Africa,” he continued. “We kind of met and started talking through that and haven’t stopped.”
Last month, Nel-Peters wished Tebow a happy birthday on Instagram, solidifying to the public that they’re in a relationship. In July, Tebow told ESPN he was blessed to have a beauty queen in his life.
“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” Tebow said. “I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful.”
Nel-Peters, who is from South Africa, won the Miss Universe crown in November 2017.
