Today, August 14, isn’t just another crappy Tuesday. No. It happens to be the birthday of former Heisman Trophy winner and current New York Mets outfield “prospect” Tim Richard Tebow, who turned the big 3-1.
Tim, of course, is probably a little down these days because he has his right arm in a sling when he could be playing outfield for the cursed AF Mets. But don’t feel too bad for HR Tim, do remember his new girlfriend is Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters — the second Miss Universe he’s landed.
She marked the occasion by dropping their first photo together on Instagram:
Happy Birthday Timmy You are such a bright light in so many people’s lives. Have the best day ever!
Tebow confirmed the relationship to ESPN’s Pedro Gomez in July:
As told to Pedro Gomez, Tim Tebow confirms reports he is dating Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, 2017 Miss Universe: “She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life. I am usually very private with these things but I am very thankful.”
Tebow slashed .273/.336/.399 with 6 home runs and 36 RBI in his 2018 campaign with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. That was apparently good enough to make it into the Double-A All-Star Game.
