Simone Biles and Boyfriend Jonathan Owens Are Engaged


Simone Biles will soon be flipping down the aisle. The Olympic gold medalist and 26-year-old Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens are engaged, the couple confirmed on Instagram Tuesday.


Simone Biles posted a series of photos of Owens proposing in a gazebo in Houston, Texas, with her wearing a black mini dress and him in a gray suit.

She also shared a video of her sparkly oval-cut diamond ring, which features a diamond-encrusted band.

“THE EASIEST YES,” Biles captioned the slideshow. “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.”

Owens commented on the post, “Ready for forever with you ❤️.”

In his own post about the engagement, Owens wrote, “Woke up this morning with a fiancée,” and added that his bride-to-be had “no clue what was coming.”


Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens‘ relationship began during the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve still managed to squeeze in tons of adventures together. The Olympic gold medalist and Houston Texans safety met via the dating app Raya in March 2020.

Biles, 24, and Owens first confirmed their relationship in August 2020 by posting a pair of photos to social media. But fans of the two began speculating that they were a couple weeks before, when Biles wished Owens a happy birthday on her Instagram Story.


In 2021, they celebrated their first anniversary as a couple; however, they were unable to be together because Biles was competing for Team USA at the Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. Yet, she still made time to honor the occasion with a social media post.

While Biles has cheered Owens on at his football games, the NFL athlete sends the love right back. When Biles suffered from the “twisties” (a disorienting condition that causes athletes to lose air awareness and puts their safety at risk during competition) and was forced to withdraw from multiple events at the Tokyo Games, Owens shared his support on Instagram at the time.

Speaking to PEOPLE in August of last year, Biles talked about her and Owens’ “love and appreciation” for one another.

She said it’s been “so exciting” to watch and support her boyfriend’s career. “I love watching him play because he has such a passion. He works so hard so for him to be able to showcase that on the field is really exciting,” Biles explained.

Simone Arianne Biles is an American artistic gymnast. With a combined total of 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, Biles is tied as the most decorated gymnast of all time. Biles’ seven Olympic medals also ties Shannon Miller for the most Olympic medals won by an American gymnast.
