Simone Biles is now engaged to her Houston Texans boo Jonathan Owens. The couple shared the exciting news on their prospective Instagram pages. Simone gushed over the proposal on Instagram by writing, “THE EASIEST YES. “I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ 💍🥺🥲🤎 @jowens_3.”
Jonathan simply wrote, “Woke up this morning with a fiancée 💍❤️.” He also thanked his friend Don for planning the proposal as well as Zo Frost who designed the icy engagement ring. Simone and Jonathan have reportedly been dating since March 2020 after meeting on the dating app Raya.
In an interview with Texas Monthly, the Houston Texans safety said he didn’t know who the 4x Olympic gold medalist was at the time, but he knew she was the perfect person for him.
“This was a match made in heaven,” he said. “There’s no better person for me. She loves me, she’s so affectionate. I just love that. And it’s just intoxicating seeing how much work she puts into everything.”
Simone also opened up about their relationship during an appearance on the Today show in 2021.
“He’s a real man. I love him,” she said. “We have a great time together. Our personalities match right up. We have the same sense of humor and he’s just great. He’s an athlete too so we really understand each other and I think that’s why our relationship has been seamless.”
