On Dec. 4, Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to a 35-32 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

It was a victory that put the Broncos in a first place tie with division rivals Oakland Raiders.

But on Dec. 2, Tebow may have made NFL history for having the youngest fan.

The fan in question is a 19-week-old fetus. And the proof he is a fan is in the pictures and the tweets from soon-to-be-father John Keller.

“Just got an ultrasound and our baby is Tebowing perfectly at 19 weeks!” Keller tweeted on Dec. 2.

The unborn baby appears to be striking the famous “tebowing” pose from the womb, according to the ultrasound picture posted on Keller’s Twitter account, which is also seen below.

The fetus appears to be kneeling with its hands cusped near its head in a prayer-like pose, made popular by the Broncos’ quarterback.

It is unclear who the oldest person is to Tebow, but it is likely that Keller’s photo marks the youngest to pose in the prayer-like position.

But Keller, who is a pastor in western New York, said the pose was instantly recognizable.

"I saw the little fist on his/her temple and the other knee bent, and I said right away 'The baby is Tebowing!' " Keller told The Christian Post.

While Keller is not a Broncos fan -- rooting, in fact for the Oakland Raiders -- he is a Tebow fan.

"I admire Tim. He is who he is and no matter how much he's criticized, he responds positively," Keller told CP. "I heard Tim's mom speak at an event in 2010 and you couldn't help but root for Tim more and admire his family's strength."

Keller, who has a 2-year-old daughter with his wife, Amy, told CP that he also hopes the ultrasound image of his unborn child gets some people to think.

"This ultrasound picture has been viewed by literally hundreds of thousands of people in the last few days," Keller said. "What I hope is that just one of the people that saw it said 'Oh wow, that's really a baby in there.' If that happens one time and causes someone to alter their view just a little bit, I think that would be an awesome use of a life 20 weeks before birth."

Tebow has had plenty of others mimic his now-famous prayer pose.

Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch mocked Tebow’s prayer pose after sacking the quarterback in the second quarter in the Oct. 30 game against the Broncos.

Other Lions’ players followed suit throughout the game.

The Lions’ players took some criticism for Tebowing during the game, with some suggesting they were mocking Christianity.

Tebow and the Lions’ players all vehemently disagreed, maintaining that Tebowing was all part of the game.

"He was just celebrating, having fun with his teammates and I don't take offense to that," Tebow previously told The Associated Press.

Tebowing, aside from being a twitter craze, increased with popularity with the launching of websites like tebowing.com, which features toddlers, celebrities and fans across the globe all striking the prayer pose.

Tebowing.com includes photos by sports fans, newscasters and even a scuba diver posing underwater.
