Simone Biles Announces Marriage to Jonathan Owens

Renowned US Olympic gymnast Simone Biles recently took to social media to share the joyous news of her marriage. The 26-year-old athlete posted a series of romantic photos featuring herself and her new husband, Jonathan Owens, a player for the Houston Texans.

A Serendipitous Connection
Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens first crossed paths during a Texans game in 2019, but they officially met through a chance encounter on social media.

A Journey to Forever
After two years of dating, Owens proposed to Biles under a beautiful gazebo in Houston, Texas. The engagement ring, designed by the renowned jeweler ZoFrost, featured a stunning diamond. The couple officially announced their engagement last February through a series of photos shared on Instagram.

An Unfamiliar Start
In an interesting twist, Owens initially didn’t know much about Biles or her celebrity status as a member of the US Olympic team. This lack of familiarity turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Speaking to Texas Monthly, Owens shared, “I didn’t know who she was. I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”

Recalling their first interaction, Biles explained to Wall Street Journal Magazine, “He would say I slid into his DMs. I saw him and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s pretty cute,’ so I said hi… and then I saw that he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.”

Interestingly, Biles’s younger sister, Adria, played a role in bringing the couple closer. Adria noticed their frequent FaceTime conversations and decided to arrange a meeting by inviting Jonathan to a family lake house. The family embraced Jonathan, and soon he became a part of the Biles’ family gatherings.

Building a Strong Bond
Reflecting on their relationship, Jonathan shared, “We ended up hanging out right before the pandemic. It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off and she couldn’t do anything. So we used it to get to know each other — really get to know each other. It created our bond and made it stronger.”

“It was a rare period in her life when everything came to a halt, leaving her with no distractions or obligations. We took advantage of that time to truly connect and understand each other. It deepened our bond and solidified our relationship.”
