Wedding bells are ringing for Simone Biles. The most decorated female gymnast of all time is preparing to marry her fiancé Jonathan Owens. She dished to E! News about her impending nuptials and how wedding planning is coming along.
“Our moms are both helping us, which is super exciting,” the 25-year-old revealed. “The biggest thing is trying to lock down a date and solidifying the guest list,” she said. Simone added, “We have some of my teammates that I’d be inviting. But other than that, it’s really close family, friends, and people that have watched us grow throughout our relationship and will share that love on that day.” So, I guess, TBD on whether or not major celebs will be in attendance.
While the duo hasn’t officially confirmed their wedding date, Simone says that they’re planning to get hitched “sometime next year” during Jonathan’s off-season from the NFL.
Simone revealed on Instagram that she picked out the gown she’d be wearing on her big day and opened up about what the experience was like.
“I had my best friend and my mom there and then once we found the dress, we did FaceTime Jonathan’s mom so that she could see it,” she explained. “But it was just a very, close tight-knit group. I didn’t show all my friends because we still wanted it to be special for everybody. It was something I didn’t think I would go with, which was so crazy because I came in with a list of my likes, what I want it to look like and then I kind of did the complete opposite of that,” the excited bride-to-be added. “But it was a fun experience. I really enjoyed it.”
Simone and Jonathan announced their engagement in February. The Houston Texan defensive back popped the question under a gazebo in Houston with the help of their families and friends.
Wedding planning isn’t the only thing keeping the Olympic gold medalist busy these days. She recently released an activewear collection with Athleta for young girls.
