Jonathan Owens cheers for Simone Biles

The show took place in Houston, Texas as a part of their two-month-long tour spanning 35 cities. A fan posted a story on Instagram where Jonathan Owens can be seen clearly cheering for his girlfriend.

Both of them hail from that state, so this particular show was all the more special for them. But that’s not all – Houston is also the place where the two lovebirds met!

Biles, the GOAT of Gymnastics, met Owens through an app just before the pandemic and they hit it off instantly! The shared love for pets also brought them close together. While Simone Biles has one bulldog, Jonathan has two.

Talking about their relationship, he said, “This was a match made in heaven.

“There’s no better person for me. She loves me, she’s so affectionate. I just love that. And it’s just intoxicating seeing how much work she puts into everything,” Owens gushed.

Earlier, in an interview with her bestie Jordan Chiles, Biles had revealed how she took approval from Chiles before dating Owens. Chiles added how she really thought Jonathan Owens was such a sweet guy and gave him the best friend tag of approval.

“When she first brought him to the house, I was just like, ‘yeah, he’s a good one.’ I know immediately only because like our friendship, I just knew what she had gone through prior to him and I was just like, ‘no, he’s a good one’,” said Chiles.

Chiles further added how she thought Owens was the nicest guy she ever met; the fact that he played football was the cherry on top!

“I didn’t even have to do anything. He was the nicest dude I’ve ever met. I was just like, ‘bro, he is a really cool one.’ Then I found out that he was a football player so I was like, ‘oh, there we go, it’s even better!’ Look at that! I was like you found a good one.”
