HOUSTON — Newlyweds Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are going to need to stock up on some cold-weather gear and matching cheeseheads. Owens just signed with the Green Bay Packers so the couple will likely be spending at least part of the year in snowy Wisconsin.
Biles announced the news on Twitter Friday with a caption "GO PACK GO" and pics of them wearing Packers gear at Lambeau Field. She also asked for recommendations on where to eat and things to do in Green Bay.
The Packers also tweeted about the deal with Owens, who had the best season of his career with the Houston Texans last year. He played in 17 games and had 111 tackles before becoming a free agent.
Biles is the most decorated U.S. gymnast in history, winning 32 Olympic and World Championship medals. She is an outspoken advocate on issues that are very personal to her, including athletes’ mental health, children in foster care and sexual assault victims.
The couple announced their marriage in April after getting engaged in February 2022. They'd been dating since 2020.
"My person, forever," Owens wrote on his Instagram post as the couple showed off their photos that highlighted the downtown Houston skyline. "I do 🤍 officially Owens," Biles posted on her Instagram account. Biles also shared that they obtained their marriage license in Montgomery County last week.
