Tim Tebow, fiancee in Atlanta for Super Bowl 53

His faith based film is screening at the College Football Hall of Fame

Tim Tebow and his fiancee, 2017 Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, are in Atlanta for Super Bowl 53.

Tebow announced the betrothal last month in an Instagram post:

“Thank you for saying YES and making me the happiest man in the world. You’re the love of my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you.”

She responded: “Any dreams I’ve ever had, you’ve exceeded them all! I love you and I can’t wait to spend forever with you!"

The happy couple posed for a red-carpet photo at Shaq’s Fun House, the star-studded extravaganza NBA great turned analyst and prolific pitchman Shaquille O’Neal has set up at The Battery at SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves.

Reports the AJC’s Ben Brasch: the scene features dancers on poles and spinners, a DJ, whack-a-mole, booze, a carousel and pizza. 

It’s safe to say teetotaling Christian Tebow probably is skipping the booze and pole dancers. Instead, he’s making an appearance at a Saturday morning screening of faith-based film “Run The Race” at The College Football Hall of Fame.

The plot: “Two desperate brothers sacrifice today for a better tomorrow. Reeling from his mother's death and his father's abandonment, Zach, an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship and the brothers' ticket out of town. When a devastating injury puts Zach—and his dreams—on the sidelines, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future and points Zach toward hope.”

The movie, in theaters Feb. 22, “shows what’s possible when you run to, instead of from, the overwhelming love of God,” its promo says.

The film stars Mykelti Williamson, Frances Fisher, Tanner Stine, and Evan Hofer,  with Tebow serving as an executive producer along with his brother Robby and Bill Reeves. Former NFL star Eddie George is emceeing the screening.  

We’ll have details later!

NOTE: Yes, it is unfortunate that the headline on this article mentions Tebow by name and not Nel-Peters. The omission is  forced by technological limitations. The content management system we use cannot accommodate “special characters” like the hyphens in Nel-Peters’ name.
