Tim Tebow tied the knot.
The former University of Florida quarterback and Jacksonville native married Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, a 24-year-old native of South Africa and the 2017 Miss Universe, Monday night in South Africa, People magazine reported Monday.
The wedding comes a year after Tebow, 32, first announced the engagement and seven months after Tebow purchased his second home, a $2.99 million, 8,166-square-foot house in Glen Kernan Golf & Country Club, a gated community on Jacksonville’s Southside.
According to People, the couple exchanged vows during a 30-minute sunset ceremony at La Paris Estate in Cape Town, South Africa, before about 250 guests.
The bride walked down the aisle in a custom-made gown from David’s Bridal, People reported. The groom wore a tuxedo designed by Antar Levar.
“Dems, I’m so grateful to share in your culture... and thank you South Africa for sharing @demileighnp with me!,” Tebow wrote in an Instagram post Sunday.
Nel-Peters replied: “I love you so much!”
The wedding comes just a week after the conclusion of the college football season (Tebow works as an analyst for the SEC Network) and about a month before Tebow reports for spring training with the New York Mets.
After playing for three years at Nease High School, he went on to a star-studded four-year career with the Gators, winning the Heisman Trophy in 2007 and playing for two national championship and two SEC champion teams.
After playing for Denver, the New York Jets, Philadelphia and a stint during the preseason with New England, Tebow gave up football and began training for an attempt at Major League Baseball.
