NEW YORK (AP) — Olympic great Simone Biles said it was “THE EASIEST YES” when her fellow elite athlete Jonathan Owens popped the question on Valentine’s Day.

“I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCE,” the excited gymnast posted on Instagram.

Biles, 24, and Houston Texans safety Owens, 26, have been dating for nearly two years.

Owens took a knee in a set of photos the most decorated gymnast of all time shared on Twitter and Instagram. They were in a gazebo, and Biles was dressed all the way up in a black mini dress and heels. Owens beamed as he placed a substantial rock on her finger.

More engagement photos had the two celebrating with a kiss at dinner and a close-up of the two holding hands, displaying Simone Biles’ oval-shaped diamond ring.

“Ready for forever with you,” Owens responded in her comments on Instagram — heart emoji in place.

Athlete of the Year

Previously, Simone Biles been announced by Time Magazine as the 2021 Athlete of the Year.

The face of U.S. Gymnastics, as well as being widely considered the greatest gymnast of all time, made headlines during the Tokyo Olympics the past summer when she qualified for all five individual event finals as well as the team finals, but chose to pull out to focus on her mental health.

The six-time Olympic medalist later revealed she was dealing with issues surrounding air awareness, referred to as “the twisties” in her sport. Biles continued to train and be evaluated daily by the USA Gymnastics staff.

Just over a week after pulling out, she decided she would compete in the balance beam finals.
