Former NFL quarterback-turned-Minor League Baseball player Tim Tebow and his new fiancée Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters took to social media over the weekend to share of a heartbreaking family loss.

Nel-Peters' 13-year-old sister, Franje, who is responsible for bringing the power couple together, passed away suddenly. Both Tebow and Nel-Peters shared moving posts on Saturday, celebrating the life of Franje.

The 2017 Miss Universe winner shared photos of her sister and the scripture Romans 8:38-39.

"My little Princess, Angel on Earth, biggest joy and baby sister, Franje, passed away earlier today," Nel-Peters wrote on Instagram. "Our hearts are aching beyond measure but I am grateful knowing she's forever relieved of the pain she experienced on earth. She's laughing, running and playing in heaven just like we always hoped she would on earth. She's free! Thank you for all your prayers, love and support."
