Tebow and Peters made headlines just before the holidays with reports that New York Mets outfielder had invited his girlfriend to spend Thanksgiving with his family.

At the time, rumors were that things were getting serious between the pair. Following the gathering, both posted pictures on their social media accounts from the festivities.

“Truly thankful for everything God has let me be a part of this year. Family. Friends. @demileighnp,” Tebow captioned his post.
