Tim Tebow and Wife Demi Leave their Honeymoon in the Maldives and Host a Rerun of the Charity Event where they First Met

Tim Tebow and his new wife Demi-Leigh Tebow have finished their honeymoon and have flown to Albania to host a rerun of the annual charity event where they first met each other.

The former NFL footballer, 32, and his pageant queen wife, 24, first met through Tim’s Night To Shine foundation in 2018 in South Africa.

The foundation seeks to throw a ‘prom night experience’ for teenagers with special needs.

This year, the first event of the year is being held in Albania.

‘Her sister has special needs, so we invited them to Night to Shine in South Africa,’ Tebow said of their first meeting in an earlier interview. ‘We kind of met and started talking through that and haven’t stopped.’

In a series on clips posted on both of the newlyweds’ Instagram stories, the couple can be seen dancing and playing with children at the event last night which was being held in Albania.

Tim starts by discussing outfits for the dance with one of the youngsters and checking out their artwork, while Demi hugs and plays with one of the babies.

The newlyweds have shared several photos on Instagram of themselves soaking up the lavish resort and island sunsets in recent weeks since they tied the knot in a glamorous South African wedding in January .

Tebow, a devout Christian who vowed to stay abstinent until marriage, married his South African beauty in January at the La Paris Estate in Cape Town.

Their wedding followed a weekend of glamorous pre-wedding celebrations that the pair documented on social media.

Nel-Peters, who is a spokes model for David’s Bridal, wore a custom gown by the wedding dress giant and accessorized with Marion Rehwinkel Jewelery.

Meanwhile, Tebow suited up in Antar Levar.

The couple, who became engaged last January, met back in 2018 at an annual special needs charity event Tebow hosts.

His Night to Shine event is essentially a prom for people with special needs.

His future wife’s younger sister, Franje, was born with special needs. She passed away in May.

Nel-Peters attended the charity event and the pair quickly started emailing back and forth.

Tim, whose Christian beliefs convinced him to remain celibate until marriage based on Hebrews 13:4, detailed how the couple kept to that promise.

‘It’s just a choice that we made that we both wanted to do that together and just try to make it as special as possible,’ he said prior to the wedding.

Before meeting his now-wife, Tebow previously dated Camilla Belle and Olivia Culpo.

Currently, the ESPN college football analyst is playing baseball in the minor leagues.

The New York Mets extended a spring training invitation to Tebow.

He has spent the past three seasons in the Mets’ organization and has a collective .223 average with 18 homers and 107 RBIs in 287 games across all levels.
