Everything We Know About Simone Biless Boyfriend, Jonathan Owens

Simone Biles isn’t afraid to show why she’s the G.O.A.T., even if it means winning against her boyfriend, Jonathan Owens.

The five-time Olympic medalist posted a clip of her Facebook Watch docuseries, Simone Vs Herself, that featured a rope-climbing race between herself and her football player boyfriend. Although Owens had a head start of over a foot, Biles easily won the race, and the couple’s $50 bet. Biles wrote in the caption, “Never underestimate a gymnast 😂 Nothing like a friendly challenge with your boyfriend.”

Biles and Owens first made their relationship Instagram official in August 2020, with a simple selfie captioned, “it’s just us 🤎.” Since then, the couple have become one of social media’s most adorable couples, thanks to their vacation pics, holiday tributes, and matching moments. Below, we break down everything we know about the couple.

Owens is a safety for the Houston Texans.

The 25-year-old NFL player grew up in St. Louis, MO. He started playing football in high school, then played college ball for Missouri Western State University. He first joined the NFL in 2018 and played for the Arizona Cardinals, before joining the Houston Texas practice squad in 2019. He officially signed with the Texans in 2020, and both he and Biles live in the Houston area.

Owens didn’t recognize Biles at first.

The couple met over social media in March 2020, according to Texas Monthly, but Owens didn’t recognize the Biles from her iconic Instagram at first. “I didn’t know who she was,” Owens told Texas Monthly. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”

Owens went into more detail on how Biles impressed him in the episode of Simone vs Herself. “Her work ethic was really the first thing that caught my eye. I never really watched gymnastics before I first started talking to her. When I met her, I honestly didn’t know who she was. It was just kind of like, ‘Oh, she’s got a lot of followers. You know, she must be pretty good or something.'”

He continued, “That’s how I would tell people, and they’re like, ‘Simone Biles?! You for real, the gymnast?!’ And I’m like, ‘Man, she’s good like that?!’ Like I didn’t [know].”

The pandemic gave them the chance to get to know each other.

Both Owens and Biles both had big plans in early 2020, with Owens headed to training camp and Biles expected to compete in the Summer Olympics. When everything was postponed due to the pandemic, they had more time for each other, according to Texas Monthly.

Owens said, “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. Now I’m so thankful.”

Simone says the couple was “meant to be.”

In the same Simone vs Herself episode, Biles explained how similar she and Owens are. “We vibe on the same level. We have the same kind of humor. We’re both athletic. We’re both elite athletes, so we definitely get each other. It was like it was meant to be,” she said.

Owens told Texas Monthly that he loves Biles’ positive personality. “Her energy is something. She’s always happy, giggly, bubbly. If I’ve had a tough day at the office, I wouldn’t want to take that home to her. Her personality, man …”

He continued: “This was a match made in heaven. 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.’

The couple is super supportive of each other’s athletic careers.

Biles told People last month that Owens is one of her biggest fans. “Oh, he’s always so supportive. Even if I wake up in the morning and I’m like, ‘I’m tired, do I have to go,’ jokingly, he’s like ‘Don’t say that! You can do it, this is your dream!'”

“He’s always, always so helpful and making sure I stay on top of my therapy and all of that. He’s the best because he also goes through it [as an athlete], so he knows exactly how it is in the process. It’s been amazing to have him,” she continued.

Owens got the chance to cheer on Biles in person as she won her seventh national women’s title. He posted a sweet pic of the two congratulating Biles, with a caption that read, “First time getting to watch you compete in person and you didn’t disappoint. It’s so cool that i get to watch you do what you love, and be the best at that ‼️ I’m so proud of you my lil champ 🥰❤️ Trials up next and you already know I’m there!! Love you baby ❤️❤️.”

Biles replied in a comment, “I love you so much 🤎 I’m so happy you got to come watch while in the middle of OTA’s 😘😘 you a real one.”
