Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are going strong! The Olympic gymnast shared a pair of PDA photos with her NFL boyfriend, who went shirtless in the September 1 snaps!
Simone Biles showed off her “Houston heat” — aka, boyfriend Jonathan Owens — in a new Instagram post on Tuesday. The U.S. Olympic gymnast, 23, and the Houston Texans player, 25, cuddled up together as Jonathan wrapped his arm around Simone from behind. The first photo was a clear shot of the NFL star’s muscular physique, while the second showed him with his chin on Simone’s head.
The athletic couple made their relationship Instagram official nearly one month to the date. On August 2, Simone shared two photos of the pair cozying up to one another on Instagram. Since then, she’s posted a number of other cute snaps with her beau.
Before Simone confirmed the relationship, fans speculated that there was something romantic brewing between the gymnast and Jonathan. She revealed that that they were spending time together in a few posts on social media — one of which included a sweet shoutout to Jonathan on his 25th birthday.
Simone was previously in a relationship with Stacey Ervin Jr. before they split earlier this year. She confirmed the breakup in her July cover story for Vogue, explaining that they had called it quits in March after three years of dating.
“It’s hard being young and having that long of a relationship and then ending it,” Simone said, adding that the split “was for the best.” Simone and Stacey went public with their romance in 2017.
Simone is currently training for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics — initially scheduled to take place this summer — which were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Training has been a little bit different,” she said during the cover interview. “It’s been kind of crazy, but going in every day knowing and hoping that 2021 is on the horizon keeps me going. It’s just, we don’t know what’s going to happen, so we train as if.”
