‘Dancing With the Stars’ Alum Announces Engagement


Congratulations are in order for a “Dancing With the Stars” semifinalist — Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is engaged to boyfriend Jonathan Owens, and her “Dancing With the Stars” season 24 partner (and Olympics floor routine choreographer) Sasha Farber was overjoyed for her. Check out the engagement Instagram posts below.

Simone & Jonathan Posted Matching Instagram Announcements

On Instagram, Simone posted a series of photos of herself being proposed to by Jonathan Owens, who is a safety for the Houston Texans. Simone captioned the photo, “THE EASIEST YES.”

“I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! Let’s get maried, fiance,” she continued, to which Jonathan responded, “Ready for forever with you.”

In her Instagram stories, Simone added, “The day after, still on cloud nine and in complete shock. Had to fly out yesterday morning to LA for some work. Missing @jowens_3 so much. Can’t wait to properly celebrate and take a moment to breathe. Thanks to everyone who reached out to congratulate us. We are over the moon! Between getting engaged/start planning a wedding and starting the house building process, we have our hands FULL. Plz be patient with us. We will try to shaer as much as possible with you guys. I love y’all.”

On Jonathan’s identical photo post, he wrote, “Woke up this morning with a fiancee. Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming. @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special.”

They two went public with their relationship in August 2020. Their one-year anniversary came when Simone was in Tokyo for the Summer Olympics, but she told People that they found time to acknowledge they had hit a milestone even if they couldn’t be together to celebrate.

“Our one year was when I was at the Olympics. We haven’t even gotten to do anything,” said Simone. “He’s picking up his season so we haven’t, but obviously, we know we share that love and appreciation for each other. Although we didn’t get to do anything big or grand, we still have that respect that we passed a year.”
