If you’re familiar with the name Simone Biles, it’s more than likely that you will be familiar with the name Ronni Biles, too. Yes, we’re talking about her niece, Ronni Biles. The Biles family welcomed Simone’s elder half-brother, Ron Biles Jr., and his wife, Sammi’s first child, Ronni Louise Biles, over a year ago. Baby Biles soon became a family favorite and her aunt Simone’s dearest ally.

Ronni has made several appearances alongside her famous aunt on social media accounts or in person. In July 2023, Simone shared a video of Ronni visiting her in the gym. In August 2023, Ronni showed up to visit her aunt wearing a black onesie that read, “Sorry, I can’t, I’m watching my Aunt TT.” Simone Biles has always been active in sharing updates about her cute little niece. However, recently, an unsettling update has come from Sammi Biles, mother of Ronni Biles.

Simone Biles has been a compassionate aunt since her niece’s birth on November 25, 2022. Simone was upfront about her sister-in-law, Sammi’s IVF struggles at the time of Ronni’s birth. She was also born prematurely, making her more vulnerable to health concerns. Despite this, Baby Biles attends almost all of Biles’ endeavors. Now, as Biles returned to international gymnastics in Europe, her sister-in-law Sammi shared an update on Instagram.

Holding Ronni on her lap, she captioned the story, “ER for her” with a white heart emoji. In the stressed mother-daughter selfie, the nine-month-old looked pale with nearly teary eyes. “Sweet girl,” Sammi said of her courageous little one, as she described her ailments and stated, “cold, flu, rsv season is for the birds” with a sobbing emoji.
