Tim Tebow has finally admitted that he is dating Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters! In his recent interview with ESPN, he confessed that things have changed ever since they started dating. “She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” he said in the interview. "I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful." The rumors about the pair dating started swirling around when Tim's sister, Katie Tebow posted a picture of Tim with Demi. The two may not have uploaded any pictures of each other on social media but that one picture was enough to catch the attention of all their fans. In the past, Tim has often hinted that one day he would love to find love.

“I’m looking, but I just can’t seem to find anyone,” he said in an interview with People. “I don’t want to be single; I’m ready to settle down and start a family. I want to have kids. I have so many things I want. No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person.” However, Tim added that he didn't have a big checklist but just wanted to be with someone who had a good heart. "I’m just looking for someone who has a good heart,” he added. “They have to be kind, and they have to care about people who can’t do anything for them in return.”

At the same time, he hinted how it is important for the girl to have faith in god. “They have to really love God,” he continued. “My faith is important to me — it’s the most important thing — and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith.” Tim has also admitted that for him love goes deeper than just the looks of a person. 

“It really has to go deeper than what they look like on the outside,” he said.  “Of course it’s important to be attracted to someone, but it really needs to be about who they are on the inside.” Demi seems to have all the qualities that Tim previously spoke about. She was born and raised in South Africa but now resides in New York City and took away the Miss Universe crown in 2017. After her bachelor’s degree in business management from North-West University in South Africa, Demi had participated in the pageant where she had hinted that she wanted to bring a change to the world. 

Demi said she wanted to teach self-defense workshops to women. One of the reasons for this was the personal history she had attached to one particular incident. During the pageant, Demi had opened up about the time when she was carjacked and the attackers tried to force her into the car. However, she was able to escape the situation as she punched one of them in the throat and run to save herself. 

She believes that it is important for every girl to learn how to protect themselves and not depend on anyone else. Meanwhile, Demi has also been involved with several charity works. While she may not have yet commented on her and Tim's relationship, there is no doubt that the pair is happy to have each other.
