"She is really a special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” says Tebow, former National Football League athlete-turned-baseball playe, who made the revelation during an interview on ESPN.
Tebow, 30, earlier dated Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo.
In a recent interview with People Magazine, Tebow said that he is ready to settle down but has not found the right girl.
“I’m looking, but I just can’t seem to find anyone. I don’t want to be single; I’m ready to settle down and start a family. I want to have kids. I have so many things I want. No one will be happier than me when I finally find the right person,” Tebow said.
Tebow added that he is looking for a girl with a strong faith and a good heart.
"I’m just looking for someone who has a good heart. They have to be kind, and they have to care about people who can’t do anything for them in return;”
“They have to really love God. My faith is important to me — it’s the most important thing — and I need to be with someone who also shares that faith;”
“It really has to go deeper than what they look like on the outside. Of course it’s important to be attracted to someone, but it really needs to be about who they are on the inside,” says Tebow who was named one of the Sexiest Men Alive by People Magazine.
