    She got engaged to American football player Tim Tebow. It’s up to you on adding him to this site.

    Nel is her mother’s maiden name. Steenkamp is the name of her stepfather Johan.

    Thank you!

    Do you have any photo of her?

    Someone posted fake news about her Filipino ethnicity in Facebook. So, don’t trust that.

    The only thing we can expand her ancestry is to find her parents’ baptismal records which might be available online. These are the clues based on a verified news source: her father was born around 1964 while her mother was born around 1961. Marriage records on or earlier than the 1960’s are useless unless we can trace her grandparents’ names.

    • Manila says:

      Try searching the following places: “Knysna” (I have already cleared that and nothing found) & “Vanderbijlpark” (I am too unclear of this if I found her father’s baptismal record)
