Former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Tim Tebow tie the knot in South AfricaFormer Miss Universe, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters (24) from South Africa, and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow (32) have officially tied the knot surrounded by their family and friends.

The intimate sunset wedding ceremony was held at the La Paris Estate in Cape Town, South Africa on Monday, January 20.

Demi-Leigh, who hails from Western Cape, has won the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, Nevada in November of 2017. She began dating Tim during her reign.

Tim, who is currently a professional baseball outfielder for New York Mets minor league affiliates, is a devout Christian and vowed to stay abstinent until marriage.

“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. And now I’m marrying Demi. I can’t wait to see what our future holds. All of my dreams have come true. It was 100 percent worth the wait.”

The newly-wed couple announced their engagement last January of 2019 after less than a year of dating.
