Ace gymnast Simone Biles and NFL safety Jonathan Owens have the most fascinating love story. Ever since they met for the first time during the pandemic, the power couple made many heads turn their way through their adorable dynamics. From hailing for each other in their respective sporting arenas to getting engaged in the most enchanting setting, the couple came a long way. We can’t agree more with Owens when he deemed his relationship with Biles as “a match made in heaven”. Let’s take a look at the complete timeline of Biles and Owens’ relationship.
Love at first sight for Simone Biles after meeting Jonathan Owens
In the year 2020, Biles and Owens connected with each other through the dating app ‘Raya’, just a few weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic caused a global lockdown. After sliding into each other’s DMs, they met in person for the first time in March 2020. The meeting immediately sparked a romance between the pair.
Nonetheless, the gymnast is as fearless when it comes to dating as she is in her beloved arena, since she is the one who initiated their chat on Raya. “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”, said Biles.
Though Biles didn’t officially meet Owens until March 2020, she later discovered that they both had an impromptu meeting with each other in 2019. The Olympian shared a throwback picture on her Instagram handle in January 2022. The photo showed Biles on the field at NRG Stadium for the 2019 Houston Texans’ match with Owens standing directly behind her. Captioning the picture, Biles wrote, “God works in mysterious ways”.
