On a plane ride last week, the 25-year-old not only went unrecognized by a flight attendant, but confused for a child. Biles shared the hilarious situation in an Instagram story, explaining that a flight attendant offered her a coloring book to occupy herself during the flight.
关于她的 Instagram 故事, the 4-foot-8-inch gymnast posted a selfie of herself looking less than impressed and wrote, “not the flight attendant trying to give me me a coloring book when I board…..I said ‘no I’m good I’m 25.’ “
Biles is certainly household name though, between her four Olympic and 19 World Championship gold medals. And earlier this month, she added to her medal case when she received the 2022 总统自由勋章 从 磷resident Joe Biden.
Biles was honored not only for her athletic prowess, but for her advocacy for “[athletes’] mental health and safety, children in the foster care system and victims of sexual assault,” according to the White House.
Her fiancé, 乔纳森欧文斯, was in attendance as well, and celebrated her big accomplishment.
“You’re one of the strongest people I know and are so deserving, I’m so blessed to be able to experience this with you. You motivate me more everyday to be the best version of myself. Such a inspiration, I love you so much babe,” 欧文斯, 26, 在 Instagram 上写道.
夫妇 宣布订婚 on Instagram in February, one day after Valentine’s Day.
“THE EASIEST YES,” Biles captioned a gallery of photos, which started with a candid of Owens, 26, kneeling down on one knee. “I can’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ ???? @jowens_3.”

The Houston Texans player posted his own set of proposal photos writing, “Woke up this morning with a fiancée ?❤️。”
自那以后, wedding plans have been high on Biles’ mind.
“马上, wedding planning is going pretty good,” 胆汁 专门告诉人们 在四月份. “I feel like I’ve only become stressed out within the last week, trying to choose a venue and stuff like that, because there are so many great places to get married, and I feel like that’s a really big decision.”
五月, she shared with her Instagram followers that they picked a location and date 为了 2023 ceremony. “One step closer to becoming Mrs. 欧文斯,” Biles captioned a photo of the two posing on the beach.
The athletes made their debut as a couple in August 2020 after Biles shared a photo of the two on Instagram. “It’s just us,” she captioned the cute gallery, which included two selfies of her and Owens smiling and cuddling.
The announcement came only a few months after the two met in March 2020 at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It was one of the few times in [Simone’s] life where everything was just shut off and she couldn’t do anything,” Owens told 今天 on how the two started their relationship. “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.”
