Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens’s Relationship: A Complete Timeline

Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens met the way most couples do these days: on an app. The Olympic gymnast and Houston Texans safety connected just before the pandemic and married in April 2023.

Besides being incredible athletes—the greatest gymnast of all time, in Biles’s case—the two have bonded over their shared sense of humor and their love for their pets. (She has two bulldogs; he has one.) “I’ll show up at her house, and her dogs will peek around her looking for my dog,” Owens told Texas Monthly in an interview. “They’ve become best friends.”

Biles and Owens are best friends too. “This was a match made in heaven,” he gushed to 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.”

March 2020

Biles and Owens connect on Raya just before the pandemic lockdown begins. But when they slide into each other’s DMs, Owens doesn’t realize at first that he is in the presence of greatness. “I didn’t know who she was,” he told Texas Monthly in June 2021. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”

He added that the timing—which easily could have ended the relationship before it even began—actually helped them build a foundation. “We ended up hanging out right before the pandemic,” he said. “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.”

Biles echoed this in her own cover interview with Glamour in 2021. “I lived, I traveled, I did things I couldn’t do because of gymnastics,” she said of that time. “I just had fun.”
