Ever since the Olympic gymnast and NFL safety got engaged last year, fans have been curious about the day they’ll tie the knot. However, the couple has taken their time to prepare for their big day. They’ve left no stone unturned to ensure it’ll be the perfect wedding. All this while, Simone Biles has given little glimpses of what she is up to through Instagram.

From the time she chose her dress, to the time she practiced her first dance, her fans know it all, except the wedding date. That is something Biles has managed to keep under wraps. Recently, Biles shared a snippet of what she is up to now.

Gymnastics GOAT Simone Biles and NFL player Jonathan Owens are set to marry in 2023. The couple has taken more than a year to prepare for the wedding. They practice every ceremony just to make sure their big day would be flawless. Earlier today, Biles took to her Instagram to share a video with her fiance. Explaining what the duo was up to, Biles wrote in the caption, “Our wedding is around the corner so we’re just practicing for the big cake cutting moment.”

In the video, the couple was trying to cut a small cake together. Biles adorably stood in front while Owens nearly hugged her from the back as the two held the knife together to cut the cake. The cake in the video looked like the one Owens gifted Biles on her birthday a few days ago. After cutting the cake, they also practiced how to give their partner a bite from their forks. All this while, the song ‘This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)’ by Natalie Cole played in the background of the black-and-white video.

A few months back, on New Year’s eve, Simone Biles held a question-answer session with her fans on Instagram. She had asked them what kind of content they’d want to see in 2023 on her profile. As always, fans wanted to see more of Biles and Owens’ antics. Answering Biles’ question, one fan wrote, “U and your husband dancing.”

Surprisingly, Biles had been practicing her first dance around that time. Promising to share the video soon, Biles revealed, “we actually took a video tonight practicing our wedding dip.” It seems like the duo has more in common than just their love for dogs and sports. Both of them seek perfection.
