The Olympic gold medalist and the NFL player, who was then a Houston Texans safety, met via the dating app Raya in March 2020. “I didn’t know who she was,” Owens told Texas Monthly in June 2021. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”
Though the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the 2020 Olympics, the break in Biles' training schedule allowed the pair to get closer. “It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off and she couldn’t do anything," Owens explained. "So we used it to get to know each other — really get to know each other. It created our bond and made it stronger. Now I’m so thankful."
The gymnast is seemingly as fearless when it comes to dating as she is on the mat. “He would say I slid into his DMs," she told the Wall Street Journal in July 2021. They hung out a couple weeks later and the rest was history. They tied the knot in April 2023.
