Tim Tebow and his new bride, former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, were in Rome this week celebrating the city’s first-ever Night to Shine event and were invited to meet Pope Francis.
Night to Shine is sponsored by The Tim Tebow Foundation and aims to help people with special needs, ages 14 and up, experience prom. The couple posted several videos of the event while celebrating the special needs community of the capital of Italy.
“We’re so excited to be part of the first Night to Shine in Rome,” Tebow is heard saying to the crowd on Instagram story.
“It’s a night where the church gets to shine, it’s a night where people with special needs get to shine, but more than anything it’s a night where God gets to shine,” he declared.
Nel-Peters took to Instagram after the event with a photo of the couple showing Pope Francis all the footage from the event.
“Shared the beautiful highlights from last night’s first-ever #NightToShine in Rome with Pope Francis,” she wrote.
Tebow didn’t share much about the meeting with the pontiff but did post a video saying he was excited to get to meet him.
“We get to meet the pope so we get to do that and then we’re gonna take off and fly to another location for the next part of Night to Shine,” Tebow shared on an Instagram story.
