Simone Biles' Family

Simone Biles' family comprises her parents and biological and adoptive siblings. Simone Biles also considers her pet dogs – French Bulldogs, a female and male named Lilo and Rambo – a part of her little family. Biles' adoptive parents are Ronald Biles and Nellie Biles. She has her own younger sister, Adria Biles, and two elder adoptive brothers named Adam and Ron Biles Jr.

Her extended family includes Ron Biles Jr.'s wife, Sammi Biles, and baby Biles, the little angel the family welcomed in November 2022. She also has two estranged biological siblings, a sister named Ashley Biles Thomas, and a brother, Tevin Biles. The siblings got separated at a young age after being adopted by different families.

Early Life and Childhood

Simone Biles was born to Shannon Biles on March 14, 1997. Her biological father, Kelvin Clemons, was absent from her life since the beginning. Supporting four kids while battling alcoholism and drug addiction proved hard for Shanon Biles. Because of this, the young Biles siblings ended up in foster care for years. Biles was just three years old when she was separated from her biological mother and put into foster care. However, three years later, the Biles siblings were adopted by their maternal grandfather Ron Biles.

Simone Biles' biological mother was prohibited from contacting the gymnast after the adoption. Simone was six when Ron and his wife, Nellie, adopted the Biles siblings. But soon it became difficult for the couple to take care of six young kids (2 biological and four adopted.) Eventually, Simone Biles' two elder biological siblings, Ashley and Tevin, were adopted by their grand aunt, Harriet.

Ron and Nellie were able to provide a safe and permanent home to little Simone and Adria. The healthy environment helped the young girls to focus on their education and explore their interests. This was also how Simone Biles found her way to gymnastics. Biles was just 6 when she saw teenage gymnasts practicing in the gymnasium during a daycare field trip.

Engrossed in her observations, she started imitating the moves of the teenagers. The coaches noticed this at the gym and wrote a letter addressed to Biles' parents suggesting enrolling her in a training center. Considering that, the couple enrolled Biles in Bannon's Gymnastix Center, which in turn became her first step towards her decorated gymnastics career.

Simone Biles' NFL husband Jonathan Owens

Simone Biles is married to the NFL safety, Jonathan Owens. The two first crossed paths during the Houston Texans' game in 2019. However, they officially met through Raya, a dating app, during the pandemic in March 2020. Reportedly, it took just about a month for the NFL player to fall for the gymnast.

They made their relationship Instagram official in August 2020. After dating for nearly two years, Jonathan Owens popped the big question in February 2022.

Then in April 2023, the couple got married in an intimate courthouse wedding ceremony in Houston, Texas. Following this, the pair once again exchanged vows in an opulent destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, in the presence of their friends, families, and close-knit acquaintances.

Recently, Owens faced criticism when he admitted that he did not know well who Simone Biles was when they matched on the dating app Raya. Biles' fans were disheartened to know that Owens hadn't heard of Biles even after her 2016 Olympic run.

Simone Biles' gymnastics comeback and Paris Olympics 2024

The 7X Olympic medalist took a break from competitive tournaments to focus on her mental health. During the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, she experienced the phenomenon known as "the twisties," in the wake of which she withdrew from the event. The case of 'twisties' occurs when a gymnast loses control of their body while performing twists in the air. This incident prompted Biles to become one of the first athletes to discuss mental health and prioritize it over competition openly.

Biles is now all set to compete at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. The 26-year-old made it big at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in August winning her eighth all-around title. She also set a record for most international gymnastics medals by winning her sixth all-around title at the world championships in Belgium in October. Her comeback is a testament that she has prepared hard to pick up from where she left off in Tokyo.

Overcoming the twisties, this comeback marked a crucial milestone in her journey toward the upcoming Olympic games. She continues to prioritize her mental well-being and is undergoing therapy to strengthen her mental approach to her craft.

Throughout her journey, Jonathan Owens has been a supportive partner, standing by her side through thick and thin.

The full-body workout includes the plie squats, superman lifts, boat holds, hip raises, and glute kickbacks.
