Simone Biles, Jonathan Owens tie the knot


(NEW YORK) — Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are married.

On Saturday, the Olympic gold medalist tied the knot with Owens, a safety with the NFL’s Houston Texans, in a courthouse ceremony, according to a tweet posted by Biles that included photos. The champion gymnast also changed her name on Twitter to Simone Biles Owens.

Owens and Biles also shared photos of their wedding on Instagram.

“I do ???? officially owens ????,” she wrote on social media.

In his announcement post on Instagram, Owens wrote: “My person, forever ❤️???? #TheOwens #itsofficial.”

The couple recently shared a sweet photo smiling with a marriage license, which they obtained in Texas, where they live.

The couple confirmed their relationship in 2020 when they made things Instagram official. At the time, Biles shared a photo of the two of them with the caption, “It’s just us.”

Biles and Owens announced their engagement in February last year on social media. Biles shared four photos from the moment Owens popped the question and wrote in the caption, “WOKE UP A FIANCÉE.”

“I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you,” Biles continued. “You’re everything I dreamed of and more! Let’s get married.”

Since their engagement, Biles has taken followers on her journey to her big day.

In February, Biles traveled to Belize with her bridesmaids and loved ones for her bachelorette party. In March, she shared that she had said “yes” to several wedding dresses.

The newlyweds are currently building a home together. In an Instagram post on March 5, Biles shared a photo of the two of them on an empty piece of land where they broke ground on their new home.

“A home is made with love and dreams,” she wrote.
