WATCH: Miss Universe Demi-Leigh is finally back home

Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters arrived at OR Tambo International Airport on Wednesday morning to a frenzy of media and excited fans.

This is the first time that Demi has returned home since clinching the prestigious Miss Universe crown two months ago.

Dressed in a elegant red jumpsuit‚ Demi-Leigh looked radiantly gorgeous. Hundreds of fans with posters cheered and clapped as our girl made her grand entrance.

Demi stopped to greet and take pictures with excited fans.

Demi-Leigh will be in the country for a week of celebrations‚ which includes a welcome party at Cape Town International and a street parade in Sedgefield where she grew up.

“Our nation is comprised of many different backgrounds and cultures‚ one of the many things that makes me immensely proud to be a South African. I am very excited to celebrate this achievement with my people in the spirit of Mzansi.”

In an interview with TshisaLIVE‚ Demi-Leigh’s mom‚ Anna-Marie Steenkamp said she could not wait to see her daughter.

“I think I will cry when I see her. I miss her terribly‚ you know. She will always be my baby and I often wonder how she’s adjusting in a foreign country. Arg! I know and understand that she’s busy. But I hope that now that she’s coming home‚ I will have enough time to talk about her crowning and really spend time as family. I’m praying that the organisers give us that chance.”
