Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is officially dating NFL star Jonathan Owens. The 23-year-old confirmed the news on social media on Saturday, weeks after she revealed her split from WWE star Stacey Ervin Jr.

Biles announced her new relationship in an Instagram post that included two photos of the couple. One image shows the four-time gold medalist and Owens together, beaming into the camera. In the second photo, Owens — a safety on the Houston Texans — has his arms wrapped around Biles and is snuggling into her neck.

"it's just us," Biles captioned the images.

Biles is one of the greatest gymnasts ever. In the 2016 Olympics she won gold medals in the vault, floor, and all-around categories, plus the team competition. She also has 19 gold medals from the world championships.

Last month, Biles told Vogue that she and Ervin Jr. had split in March after three years of dating.

"It's hard being young and having that long of a relationship and then ending it. But it was for the best," she told the outlet.

In 2018, Biles made headlines after she revealed that former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused her. At least 250 women have accused him of sexually abusing them.

"I too am one of the many survivors that was sexually abused by Larry Nassar," Biles wrote in a statement shared to Twitter. "Please believe me when I say it was a lot harder to first speak those words out loud than it is now to put them on paper. There are many reasons that I have been reluctant to share my story, but I now know it is not my fault."

She continued: "It is not normal to receive any type of treatment from a trusted team physician and refer to it horrifyingly as the 'special' treatment. For too long I've asked myself, 'Was I too naïve? Was it my fault?' I now know the answer to those questions. No. No, it was not my fault. No, I will not and should not carry the guilt that belongs to Larry Nassar, USAG, and others."

Nassar was sentenced to hundreds of years in prison for sexually assaulting athletes, mostly female gymnasts, at Michigan State and a Lansing-area gymnastics club. Former Olympians said he also molested them in Texas and overseas while he worked for USA Gymnastics.
