The Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL quarterback and current minor league outfielder for the New York Mets opened up Tuesday on TODAY about how he met his girlfriend, 2017 Miss Universe winner Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.
"She is a very sweet, young girl,'' he said.
This year's Night to Shine event involved more than 500 churches from around the world throwing a prom night for special needs children ages 14 and older.
"Her sister has special needs, so we invited them to Night to Shine in South Africa,'' Tebow told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. "We kind of met and started talking through that and haven't stopped."
The couple made their relationship Instagram official last month when Nel-Peters wished Tebow a happy birthday.
