After becoming the most decorated gymnast of all time at the World Championships in October, Biles has been spending more time with Owens in Green Bay, and staying in their hometown of Houston to document the construction of the couple's home.

Earlier this year, Biles opened up about married life and how it has impacted her perspective on her career.

“Gymnastics is just something I get to come in and have the privilege of doing,” the Olympic medalist told Today.

“I don’t feel like it’s the end all be all anymore, as before I kind of felt like that,” she explained. “I get to go home to my husband, to my dogs, to my house and all of the things. So it feels really good.”

“It’s been really fun supporting what he loves to do,” she told Today. “Obviously, he’s in Green Bay right now so my season just ended. I’m super excited to get out there to Green Bay for the holidays to support him."
