A year ago Demi-Leigh Tebow (née) Nel-Peters on May 4, 2019, lost her younger sister, Franje and as she celebrates the anniversary of her passing, she has admitted that it is a difficult time.

The former Miss Universe took to Instagram, to share a picture of herself with her husband, Tim Tebow, and penned an emotional caption detailing how grateful she is to have a supportive man by her side during this time.

"Today was one of those days. My baby sister, Franje, went to Heaven today exactly a year ago. I miss her every day and today should just be another day in the calendar but for some reason this specific day pulls more on my heartstrings than yesterday or the day before. I guess there's just something special about specific days and dates (sic)," she said.

The former Miss South Africa's sister died last year after being admitted to hospital with pneumonia. Franje had a condition that resulted in her having the intellectual ability of a three-month-old baby and couldn't walk, talk or eat and was fed through a tube.

Demi-Leigh shared with her 1.6 million followers that doing simple tasks such as putting on a pretty outfit, earrings, mascara, and some lipstick just all seemed too difficult today but her baseball player husband made sure she was able to get through the day.

"He'd just pick me up on his lap and hold me. By the 5th time he came to check up on me he brought me Excedrin and a puppy. It helped! Excedrin for my headache and our puppy for the heartache. Timmy, thank you for being the most incredible partner in the great days but even more in the awful days. I love you. I'm so grateful for you and I appreciate you so much (sic)," explained Demi.
