    Bears defensive back Jonathan Owens and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles are an athletic power couple. Here's everything you need to know about their relationship.

    Simone Biles is the most decorated gymnast of all time, but did you know that she’s part of an athletic power couple? Biles is married to Chicago Bears defensive back Jonathan Owens, who has been in the NFL since 2018.

    Let’s take a look at how they started dating, when they got married, and much more. Here’s everything you need to know about Biles and Owens’ relationship!

    Who Is Simone Biles?

    Biles is a superstar in the gymnastics world, as she’s won 37 Olympic and World Championship medals — making her the most decorated gymnast ever. Her seven Olympic medals are tied for the most by a U.S. gymnast.

    Biles was born on March 14, 1997, in Columbus, Ohio, but spent most of her childhood raised in Spring, Texas. Biles attended Benfer Elementary School in Harris County, Texas, before she switched from public school to homeschooling in 2012, allowing her to focus on her gymnastics training.

    Biles went on to commit to UCLA to compete at the collegiate level before ultimately deciding to forgo college altogether, announcing that she would turn professional and forfeit her NCAA eligibility.

    In 2016, Biles won individual gold medals in the all-around, vault, and floor competitions, bronze on the balance beam, and gold as part of the United States team.

    Biles is a household name and has a ton of endorsement deals with companies like Uber Eats, SK-II, Visa, GK Elite, Athleta, and United Airlines.

    Who Is Jonathan Owens?

    Owens may not be a household name like his wife, but he has carved out an impressive career for himself in the NFL.

    After starring at Christian Brothers College High School in Missouri, Owens played college football at Missouri Western State University from 2013 to 2017. As a senior, the defensive back earned MWSU Male Student-Athlete of the Year honors and was selected to the Second-Team All-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. Owens majored in pre-physical therapy, with the hope of becoming a doctor someday.

    Owens went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft, but the Arizona Cardinals signed him. After stints with the Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers, Owens signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears on March 13, 2024.

    He is one of just nine players from MWSU to make it to the NFL.

    How Did the Couple Meet?

    According to Owens and Biles, the two met in March of 2020 on the dating app Raya, which connects celebrities. Biles was the one who reached out first, and it was her courtship of Owens that kicked off the relationship.

    “I saw him, and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s pretty cute,’ so I said hi, and then I saw that he was in the Houston area,” she told Wall Street Journal Magazine. “So we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.”

    Speaking to Texas Monthly in 2021, Owens shared: “I didn’t know who she was. I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”

    The 2020 Olympic Games were postponed due to the pandemic, and the couple used that time to get closer.

    “It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off, and she couldn’t do anything,” Owens said. “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.”

    The two got engaged in February of 2022, and they got married on April 22, 2023.

    Biles has been seen on more than one occasion supporting her man in the stands while wearing his jersey.

    Owens is very supportive as well. In fact, he’ll be in the stands rooting on his wife during the Paris Olympics, as the Bears gave him permission to miss several days of training camp to attend Biles’ events and cheer her on in person.

     

    It’s safe to say that Biles and Owens are a power couple, with both thriving in their respective sports.
