American Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles has said a big “YES” to her boyfriend, Jonathan Owens’ marriage proposal less than two years after she slid into his DM.
The 24-year-old gymnast took to her Instagram page to announce the exciting news, and share photos of the romantic moment Owen went on one knee to propose to her with an 8-carat ring on Valentine’s day.
She captioned the photos, “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″
The NFL Player also took to his Instagram page to share the news with his fans and followers.
Sharing the proposal photos, he wrote,
“Woke up this morning with a fiancée.’
Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming,
[Jeweler] @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special.”
In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Biles disclosed that they first met on social media in March 2020.
“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,” she said
Owen, on his part, said he didn’t know who she was when she contacted him, even though she was a four-time gold medalist at the time.
“I didn’t know who she was,” he told Texas Monthly. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”
He said they started hanging out right before the COVID-19 pandemic started.
“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. Now I’m so thankful.”
