Bad news for Tim and Jana shippers! Despite recent reports, Tim Tebow and 19 Kids and Counting star Jana Duggar are not dating, his rep tells Us Weekly in an exclusive statement.

In fact, the former Denver Bronco quarterback, 27, has had no interaction with Duggar, 24, whatsoever. His rep adds: "Tim and Jana Duggar have never even met."

Speculation that the two were an item began after Tebow's mother Pam met Duggar's parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, at a speaking engagement last month.

Jana is the oldest daughter in the Duggar household. Tebow previously dated actress Camilla Belle for a few months back in 2012.
