One of the most beloved Christian bachelors is now off the market. Athlete Tim Tebow proposed to his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, at the start of 2019. The high profile couple has something special, though. They are choosing to save sex for their wedding night.

Tebow, a 31-year-old virgin, has said he would save himself for marriage since the beginning of his career, which many fans have supported. Despite now being engaged, he still wants to keep that promise to God and is joyful that Nel-Peters does too.

“It’s just a choice that we made, that we both wanted to do that together and we’ll try to make it as special as possible,” Tebow said.

When asked when he knew that Nel-Peters was the one, Tebow had this to say: “You know what’s crazy is we both kinda knew the first or second time we hung out.”

Tebow shares more in the interview below.
