However, Olympic gymnastics GWOAT Simone Biles was one of Owens’s loudest cheerleaders online. The multi-time Olympic gold medalist is Owens’ girlfriend, and Biles proudly retweeted a video of Owens’ interception with the caption “LFG!”

“And you know his girlfriend is going to love that. Four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, she’ll be celebrating her boyfriend’s first NFL INT.”

Dynamic Duo

According to People, Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens have been together for over a year. She told the outlet that their first anniversary came while Biles was in Tokyo for the 2021 Summer Olympics. Biles stated that Owens’ schedule picked up after the Olympic games, so they didn’t have a chance to celebrate.

“He’s picking up his season so we haven’t but obviously, we know we share that love and appreciation for each other,” Biles said, according to People. “Although we didn’t get to do anything big or grand, we still have that respect that we passed a year.”

Who Is Jonathan Owens?

Owens went undrafted in 2018, and his initial team was the Arizona Cardinals. However, he was cut by the team in 2019 before eventually joining the Texans. Since hired in Houston, Owens has been active for seven games with the Texans in 2019 and 2020; however, he did not register any stats.

Owens first made it onto the field for the Texans during Week 12. Since then, he has played in every Texans game, getting his first start in Week 15. However, coming into Sunday’s game, Owens had 14 tackles this season. However, he can now add one interception and a fumble recovery to his stat sheet.

Mental Health and Social Justice Advocate

Biles was Time Magazine’s Athlete of the Year and showed courageousness in stepping back in Tokyo Olympics to put her mental and physical health first.

In addition, she was a part of a brave consortium of Olympic gymnasts to expose Larry Nassar, the former Team USA doctor, for sexual abuse allegations. For many, Biles and Naomi Osaka are the most influential athletes of the year for shining the spotlight brightly on the deterioration of mental health concerning sports play.
