Simone Biles Is Engaged! See Her Stunning Ring from Jonathan Owens

This just in: Simone Biles is going to the chapel. *Cue the wedding bells*

Today, the 24-year-old Olympian revealed that she’s engaged to her beau, Jonathan Owens. Biles announced the exciting news on Instagram by posting a slideshow, featuring the moment the professional football player popped the question.

The slideshow begins with candid shots of the proposal, which took place on the steps of a gazebo. There’s also a close-up shot of the ring, followed by a video of the accessory being examined by a jeweler. (FYI, the engagement ring features an oval-cut diamond that’s set on a sparkly band.)

“THE EASIEST YES,” Biles wrote. “I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”

Owens (who’s a safety for the Houston Texans) shared a similar slideshow on his personal Instagram account and captioned the post, “Woke up this morning with a fiancée [ring emoji] [heart emoji].”

He continued, “Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming [laughing emoji] @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special.”

Biles and Owens first met on social media back in March 2020, and they immediately hit it off (even though Owens didn’t know very much about Biles’s career). “This was a match made in heaven. There’s no better person for me,” he told Texas Monthly. “She loves me, she’s so affectionate. I just love that. And it’s just intoxicating seeing how much work she puts into everything.”

Congratulations, you two.
