After a yearlong engagement, the former star quarterback has married the beauty queen. Heisman-winner Tim Tebow, who switched sports and is now part of the New York Mets' minor league system, has married Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a former Miss Universe from South Africa, USA Today reports. They tied the knot in a sunset ceremony in her homeland. Tebow shared photos from the big day with his 2 million followers on Instagram on Monday. Tebow, 32, has been dating the 24-year-old Nel-Peters since 2018. "I've been waiting my entire life for someone special, who I can spend the rest of my life with. I was waiting for the right person to come along," he told People the night before the wedding. "And now I’m marrying Demi. I can't wait to see what our future holds." (More Tim Tebow stories.)
