Simone Biles Posts Pic of Extremely Intimate Moment with Boyfriend Jonathan Owens on Instagram

Simone Biles isn’t afraid to show PDA with her boyfriend, NFL player Jonathan Owens.

The 24-year-old gymnast recently posted an intimate photo of herself kissing her 25-year-old beau on Instagram. (Let’s hope Biles’s mom, Nellie, doesn’t have social media. J.K.)

The black-and-white pic shows Biles and Owens sitting in what appears to be a horse-drawn carriage. The image features the Olympian gracefully draping her arm across her boyfriend’s chest as he pulls her in for a smooch. Owens is sporting a casual white tee, while Biles is wearing a Team USA crop top (natch).

She captioned the post, “You give me butterflies.”

The post comes about a week after Biles battled Owens in a competitive “rope challenge” during a segment of her Facebook Watch series, Simone Versus Herself. The athlete explained that Owens (who’s a safety for the Houston Texans) agreed to race her on side-by-side hanging ropes, which were attached to the ceiling.

“So, we’re going to do a rope challenge,” she said in the clip. “Gymnast versus NFL player.”

It’s important to note that the face-off wasn’t all fun and games, since they bet each other $50. (Owens tried—and failed—to up the ante by throwing in a foot rub.)

Biles first went public with their relationship back in 2020. She shared a never-before-seen selfie of herself and Owens on Instagram and wrote, “It’s just us.”

Still, one question remains: Will Owens accompany Biles to Tokyo? Just because the Olympics committee is limiting the number of guests due to the coronavirus pandemic doesn’t mean we can’t cross our fingers (and toes).
