The SEC analyst was previously linked to Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo and actress Camilla Belle. Tebow, who played Minor League Baseball for the Mets organization in 2017 and 2018, previously opened up exclusively to Us Weekly about his decision to switch from football to baseball and the importance of his faith.

“There’s a God who loves you and has a plan for you,” he said in 2016. “It’s encouraging and it totally changes your outlook on life when you’re like, Hey, I was created in love, by love, and for love to accomplish awesome things that He prepared for me.”
