Katy Perry's split from Russell Brand is still raw, but her parents are already trying to fix her up with Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow!
If her parents have any say in the matter, Katy will spend her future Sundays going to church and watching football — because Mom and Dad want holy, hunky NFL quarterback Tim to be her next husband! Keith and Mary Hudson, Katy’s pastor parents, are convinced that the strapping, Jesus-loving Tim is just the tonic Katy needs after her split with Russell, 36, who filed for divorce on Dec. 30 after 14 months of marriage.
“Katy’s mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again,” an insider shares with OK!. “In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He’s handsome, charming, intelligent and, above all, a good Christian.” Indeed. The Denver Broncos starter has been dubbed “God’s quarterback” and openly prays on the field, a move fans call “Tebowing.”
“Katy’s parents watch him play all the time and think he’s ideal husband material,” says the insider. “He’s the complete opposite of Russell.”
As conservative Christians, Katy’s mom and dad don’t condone divorce, but secretly, they’re psyched that their baby will be free and clear of the raucous and much-older Russell. They were appalled when Katy, 27, wed the British comedian, who has a history of drug problems and who boasted publicly of his sexual exploits.
It’s also clear that Ma and Pa Perry aren’t going to sit on the sidelines this time. They're taking action and are reportedly inviting Tim to speak at their church, The Sanctuary, in Huntington Beach, Calif., where Katy used to sing in the choir. “Katy will be there, too!” says another source. “She’s mentioned on more than one occasion how much she likes Tim.”
