Football and baseball star—and outspoken prayer advocate—Tim Tebow did something extraordinary for the Thanksgiving holidays. He brought Miss Universe home to the family. Yes, the popular sports star has a new love in his life and their story is warming our hearts and renewing our faith in love.

Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, who is from South Africa and was crowned Miss Universe in 2017, have been dating for a while now, but this is a new twist. Does this mean their relationship is getting serious? Well, we all know that a man doesn’t bring a lady home to meet his mother and the rest of his family unless the young lady is a genuine love interest. And Thanksgiving is a big deal for American families. Bringing home a new love almost certainly means it’s getting serious.

We found out about the holiday invitation from TMZ and from an Instagram post from Ms. Nel-Peters. She said:

“My first American style Thanksgiving with the sweetest family. Grateful for an incredible year and everyone I got to share it with. #Thanksgiving”

It seems Demi enjoyed Thanksgiving as much as we do.

Our hearts melted back in August when Demi sent Tim this birthday message on Instagram.

“Birthday Timmy You are such a bright light in so many people’s lives. Have the best day ever.”

A Heisman Trophy winner, what does Tim have to say about his love and his Thanksgiving holiday? Well, he included her in his Thanksgiving list of things to be grateful for, along with an adorably funny family photo. You can tell that this day was one of the most fun days ever!

“Truly thankful for everything God has let me be a part of this year. Family. Friends. @demileighnp.”

Tim is positively gushing about his relationship with this beautiful young woman.

“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” he told CNN.

Furthermore, the young couple had a New York City date where they invited both sets of parents. This is serious, folks.

Is it love? Well, judge for yourself with this post from Demi in October.

We’ll continue to watch this adorable relationship. Young love is a beautiful thing and it’s so awesome that they’re willing to share their joy with the world.
