simone Biles, 24, may have an impressive collection of gold medals in her arsenal, but the role of the Olympic gymnast’s #1 supporter has already been awarded to her boyfriend, Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens. Simone recently made the decision to withdraw from several competitions at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to focus on her mental health,
and Jonathan’s made it clear that he’s supportive of his girlfriend putting her mental health and safety first. In a picture she posted alongside her gymnastics teammates, Simone took the opportunity to thank them for stepping up when she couldn’t.
” Jonathan expressed his unconditional support under the post by writing, “I’m so proud of y’all 🤞🏽❤️.”This isn’t the first time the couple has shown what a tight relationship they have on social media. The two have actually been together for over a year and during that time, have been supplying Instagram with regular #CoupleGoals posts and glimpses into their sweet relationship. They weathered the COVID-19 pandemic together, have taken tropical vacations, rocked matching Christmas PJ’s, and have gone all out for Valentine’s Day. And maybe most importantly, they seem incredibly supportive of each other’s careers.
“He’s a real man. I just, I love him,” Simone told Hoda Kotb on the TODAY show in January 2021. “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.” “This was a match made in heaven,” Jonathan told Texas Monthly. “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.” If this is all starting to sound like a modern-day fairytale, *spoiler alert* it might just be.
