The happy couple reportedly started dating in March 2020 and have been together ever since, the “Today” show noted.

“We ended up hanging out right before the pandemic,” Owens told Texas Monthly in June 2021 about his romance with Biles. “It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off, and she couldn’t do anything. 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.”

“This was a match made in heaven,” he added. “There’s no better person for me. She loves me, she’s so affectionate. I just love that. And it’s just intoxicating seeing how much work she puts into everything.”
