American gymnast Simone Biles and her boyfriend, NFL star Jonathan Owens, recently celebrated the first anniversary of their relationship. Find out how the cute couple celebrated their sweet love.
American gymnast Simone Biles is known for her record-breaking gymnastic career, which has wowed many people. However, that is not where her successes end.
Biles has been in a sweet and loving relationship with NFL star Jonathan Owens for a year. The couple has documented the precious moments of their relationship on social media.
The couple celebrated their first anniversary on Friday, and Biles marked it in grand style with a sweet message to Owens in an Instagram post she made.
She shared an adorable photo that showed her and Owens posing in matching outfits outdoors. The NFL player wore a yellow top and sky blue ripped jeans. He completed his cool look with white sneakers.
Biles wore a yellow off-the-shoulder top, sky blue ripped jeans, and white sneakers. She also rocked long braids and accessorized her look with a necklace.
The couple embraced each other and smiled while posing for the picture. A second photo showed them playing with each other and laughing as they did. In the post's caption, Biles wrote:
"Oops I forgot to tell y'all that we've been dating for more than a year 🤍 so happy past 1 year to the best thing that's ever happened to you: ME 🤍🤣."
Owens replied to his girlfriend's post with this comment: "Time flies when you're having fun❤️🤪 To many more with you baby 🤞🏽."
Many of Biles' fans celebrated with the couple by sending congratulatory messages and wishing them well going into the future. They also agreed that they look good together.
The footballer did not know who she was before they started dating but now looks primed to be with her for the long haul.
While Biles and Owens' relationship has been rosy to date, the gymnast experienced some personal challenges recently. These challenges came during the Tokyo Olympic Games, where she withdrew from the gymnastics team final and individual all-around competition.
Citing her mental health and wellbeing as the reason for her exit, she faced criticism from some quarters for withdrawing from the games. However, many people, including fellow athletes, supported her decision.
Owens was one of those that supported Biles. He took to social media to show his support for her and express his pride in her. In a post on Instagram, the professional footballer promised to ride with his lover through whatever.
He also lauded her strength and courage, adding that she inspires him daily. Owens said Biles would always be his champion, expressed his love for her, and said he could not wait for her to come home from the Olympics so he would see her beautiful smile again.
After returning home from the Olympics, Biles has been spending time with Owens. She visited him during his NFL team's practice session and shared a passionate kiss with him.
Biles has since recovered from the "twisties" she experienced at the Olympics and is gearing up for the Gold Over America Tour. She detailed her recovery in a chat with People and revealed she is back to her best again.
It is great to see Biles back to doing what she knows best again. She and Owens' first anniversary is also another good development.
The footballer did not know who she was before they started dating but now looks primed to be with her for the long haul if their love story so far is anything to go by.
