After months of preparations, bridal photoshoots, and “boujee” bachelorette parties, Simone Biles is a married woman.
Today the beautiful bride married Jonathan Owens, a football player for the Houston Texans.
The Olympic gymnast and the NFL player said their vows surrounded by friends and family, with a lavish ceremony fit for a gold medalist.
Simone announced the news on social media, where she has kept fans in the loop regarding her wedding preparations. The announcement came just shy of one week after obtaining a marriage license.

Simone and Jonathan’s love story is modern — a tale of two athletes who found love on social media.
Their love story began in 2020 when they met on Raya — a popular dating app for wealthy people, celebrities, and influencers. It wasn’t long before sparks flew between the two, who began appearing on each other’s social media accounts.
When Simone competed at the 2020 Olympics in 2021, Jonathan supported her from afar and watched her performance.

Less than a year after the Tokyo Olympics, the couple took the next step in their relationship.
In February 2022, they finally confirmed the news everyone was waiting for – Simone and Jonathan were engaged!
Simone shared the moment with the caption, “THE EASIEST YES.”
She continued, “I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”
At 26 and 27 years old, Jonathan and Simone have a lifetime of potential memories to unlock.
