Newlyweds Tim Tebow and Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters are living their best lives. The former NFL star and 2017’s Miss Universe gave their Instagram followers a peek into their romantic honeymoon at the Soneva Jani resort in the Maldives. Tim, 32, and Demi-Leigh, 24, tied the knot on January 20.
Demi-Leigh shared a selfie of her and her new husband, in which she kissed Tim on the cheek. “Here’s to endless sunsets with you ❤️,” she captioned the snapshot. The Syracuse Mets outfielder also posted a selfie with the South African beauty. “Not a bad view,” he wrote.
The beauty queen jokingly warned her 1.5M Instagram followers that she planned to “bombard” them “with 11 days of UNREAL natural beauty.” The video featured the sunset over the waterfront villa in which they honeymooned. The cotton-candy colored sky reflected off the water. Demi also showed off the other villas at the resort.
During their trip, the newlyweds also spent time on the beach and sipped piña coladas by the water.
On January 20, Tim and Demi-Leigh got married during an intimate sunset ceremony at La Paris Estate in Cape Town, South Africa. The couple exchanged handwritten vows during the 30-minute long ceremony, according to People. The former football star said he put off writing his vows until the night before. “I want the vows to be perfect,” he confessed. “I’m leaving in the traditional things like ’till death do us part,’ but I’m also adding some of my own things to it.”
Ahead of the wedding, the Heisman Trophy winner also dished to the publication about what he looked forward to the most. “I’ve been looking forward to three things,” he said. “The first moment I see her in her wedding dress, the first kiss, and the first dance together as man and wife. It’s such a special night.”
He continued, “I’ve been waiting my entire life for someone special, who I can spend the rest of my life with. I was waiting for the right person to come along. And now I’m marrying Demi. I can’t wait to see what our future holds. All of my dreams have come true. It was 100 percent worth the wait.”
Tim confirmed his relationshipto Demi-Leigh during an interview with ESPN’s Pedro Gomez in July 2018. “She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” he gushed. “I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful." He popped the question to Demi-Leigh in January 2019 on the Florida farm where he grew up.
