Top US gymnast Simone Biles and NFL star Jonathan Owens have officially confirmed their relationship with the public. The couple has been a regular feature on each other’s social media accounts in the last few months.
Biles and Owens have been dating since the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in 2020. However, there are no reports or talk about their plans of tying the knot. But the destination of their dream wedding might be finalized as hinted by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics’ medalist’s mother.
In an interview with The New York Times, Simone’s mother, Nellie Biles, leapt massive praises for inspiring her community. She said, “We are the best-kept secret. For Simone to shine a light on Belize, I think it’s meaningful because it’s such a huge part of our family history and the foundation of who we are, and we are excited that this is being used as a platform to showcase other talents in Belize.”
Further talking about Simone’s wedding destination, Nellie revealed, “Simone said, when she gets married, it’s going to be in Belize.”Notably, Biles has dual citizenship as apart from The US, she is also a citizen of the Central American country, Belize.
Jonathan Owens walks through his early interactions with Simone Biles
In a recent interview, while speaking to Texas Monthly, Jonathan had revealed that he didn’t know about Biles before the duo met during last year’s lockdown.
“I didn’t know who she was,” said Owens. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”
“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,” he added.
