For some reason thought be was polish.
According to a genealogist he is Belgian, so what’s the truth ?
Yes, he has distant Belgian ancestry. That doesn’t conflict with anything else here.
He looks soooooooooooo Jewish but I know that he is not a Jew at all.
This is truly a fine young man who loves his family and God. It is so nice to see someone of his stature being so respectful and yet he is a little naive which is sweet. I hear he is seeing Taylor Swift and she is in the same category. I hope they take it slow.
So flattered to have a Born Again Christians who’s shining and is still willing to be used in God’s glory.. Thank God for what He have done in their lives. Keep it up Tim Tebow. And just so proud, Philippines had a part in your life.. I am Filipino and I’m proud of you.
