It’s been a big year for Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters! For the last year, she has served as Miss Universe after being crowned the winner from South Africa. She also began dating Tim Tebow who is understandably smitten over her.
Ahead of the 2018 Miss Universe pageant, Tim Tebow took to his Instagram to gush over his girl and her work over the past year as Miss Universe.
“You represented Miss. Universe so well,” he stated. “You’re an incredible role model, and carry yourself with beauty, kindness, and grace. I’m so proud of you!”
Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters handed over the Miss Universe crown to Catriona Gray, a 24-year-old Filipina-Australian representing the Philipines.
“When I was 13, my mum told me “Honey, I dreamt of you winning Miss Universe in a red dress.” At that time I thought nothing of it, and today my mother’s dream came true,” Catriona Gray said in an Instagram post showing Nel-Peters crowing her.
“Where do I even begin? Lord God, I lift everything up to you – to glorify and honour you.”
Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Tim Tebow announced their relationship earlier this year. “She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” Tim Tebow said in his interview with ESPN.
