The 2024 NFL season has been about power couples. Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce have rightfully gotten a majority of the spotlight, with the two superstars shining in their respective fields.

While the Kelce-Swift phenomenon is continuing in the NFL playoffs, the pair aren’t the only famous lovebirds in the postseason.

Simone Biles has been a frequent guest this season in Green Bay. The four-time Olympic gold medalist is one of the most recognizable names in the sporting world, as she has led the USA gymnastics team to stardom on the international stage. 

However, her husband has plenty of athletic ability, as well. Biles’ soul mate is Jonathan Owens, a member of a Packers team with their eyes on making a surprise run to Super Bowl 58.

Here is what fans need to know about Owens and his relationship with Biles.

Who is Simone Biles’ husband?

Biles’ sporting career with USA gymnastics has been well documented, but she isn’t the only athlete among the couple.

Her husband is Jonathan Owens, a strong safety for the Packers. Owens played collegiately at Missouri Western State, a Division II school in the NCAA that competes in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics (MIAA). He played for four seasons with the Griffons, earning the MWSU Male Student-Athlete of the Year in his final season, as well as second-team all-MIAA honors.

After he went undrafted at the 2018 NFL draft, Owens signed with the Cardinals ahead of the ’18 season. However, an injury kept him on injured reserve for the entire campaign, and he was waived by the team in August of ’19.

The Texans signed Owens to their practice squad in September of 2019. For two seasons, Owens flipped between the practice squad and the active roster, but it wasn’t until the ’21 season that he saw any starts. He started twice in seven appearances for Houston in ’21 before earning a full-time role in ’22, starting in all 17 games for the Texans.

As a free agent last offseason, Owens signed a one-year, $1.01 million contract with the Packers. With Green Bay, the safety made 11 starts this season, recording three pass deflections, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

March 2020: Owens and Biles first met on the dating app, Raya, in March of 2020. Biles confirmed that it was her that made the first move.

“He would say I slid into his DMs,” Biles said to the Wall Street Journal. “I saw him and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s pretty cute,’ so I said hi … and then I saw that he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.”

Since this time coincided with the start of the pandemic, the two had plenty of free time to spend together. The pair officially started dating the same month.

August 2020: In the digital age, are two people really a couple until someone posts them together on social media? Biles and Owens went Instagram official four months after starting to date, as the gymnast posted to her Instagram a picture of the two.
