Newlyweds Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Tim Tebow are taking over Europe! This weekend they were graced by a truly holy presence when they met the Pope for the first time.

Not even a month after getting married, Demi-Leigh and Tim are already doing meaningful work together.

Last week, the lovers jetted off to Europe for a series of Night To Shine events at which Tim had been invited as a special guest. They jetted off to Albania first before landing in Italy for the second instalment of the series. While in Rome, they bumped into a very special guest: Pope Francis!

An excited Demi-Leigh wrote on Instagram, “Shared the beautiful highlights from last night’s first-ever #NightToShine in Rome with Pope Francis!”
