Simone Biles is savoring every moment leading up to her big day at the altar. To express her joy over being engaged, the gymnast recently shared sweet photos with her close friend and fellow fiancée, interior designer Kayla Simone, on Instagram. In each shot, Biles and Simone flash their sparkling engagement rings while sitting side by side on a swing, clad in identical “bride” sweatshirts and matching white Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. “Like Beyoncé, but with an F,” the caption states.
Fans greeted the heartwarming post with enthusiasm. “Y’all will both be beautiful brides, but I pray amazing marriages on you,” one user wrote. Another echoed the sentiment, writing, “both going to be the most beautiful brides !! can’t wait to celebrate y’all.”
Biles got engaged to her boyfriend of over a year, Houston Texans player Jonathan Owens, on Valentine’s Day. Owens proposed with an oval-shaped engagement ring estimated to contain between seven to nine carats. A month into her engagement, Biles shared she found her wedding dress during a visit to the Galia Lahav flagship store in Los Angeles. She’s also since scooped up a second (silicone) engagement ring to wear while working out.
Simone, meanwhile, got engaged to Ira Brandon III in September 2021 with a pear-shaped diamond. Biles, who was in attendance, witnessed the surprise go down. Simone wrote at the time, “What a blessing it is to love and be loved by all of you.” In her Instagram post that day, Biles said, “MY BESTIE SAID YESSSSS.” She added, “Now she’s the cutest Feyoncé!!!!!”
