However, Biles recently revealed that she actually bumped into Owens way before they had met formally, and even has pictures to prove her story.

Simone Biles and the mother of irony

Back in 2019, Simone Biles was invited by the Houston Texans for a game. Recently, while going through her phone, Biles stumbled upon pictures from her that visit and was left pleasantly surprised.

Biles spotted her now-boyfriend photo bombing several of her pictures, unintentionally. Notably, Biles doesn’t recall meeting Owens that day.

In the first photo, Biles could be seen posing with several team members. Upon a second look, one can easily spot Owens standing behind.

“Okay, how crazy is this photo. december 2019. texans had me for homeland advantage and I lead the team out of the tunnel…but look whose behind me…,” posted Biles on her Instagram story.

Awed to the mother of coincidence and reflecting upon how different her life was then and now, Biles added, “God works in mysterious ways!!”

Not just the photo, Ownes was also spotted in a video from that day back in 2019.

Like how!!??

Just before Biles was introduced to the crowd, Jonathan walked past the camera that was about to catch Simone’s entry.

“Not him walking in front of the camera before I’m introduced,” wrote Biles while sharing the video.
