Right for quite a while, once told People the kind of woman he was searching for: "They have to really love God", he continued. "I'm sorry you didn't get a new truck", she said, "but you're getting a new daughter!"

Tebow, a former star at Nease High School, has reportedly been seeing Nel-Peters for about two years.

"You represented Miss. Universe so well!" he wrote. I have so many things I want.
