Houstonian Simone Biles, known throughout the world as the GOAT, history’s top gymnast, a passionate defender of women, and champion of mental health, now has a new title: fiancée.

Biles and her boyfriend, Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens announced their engagement on February 15 on dual Instagram posts, apparently on Valentine’s Day.

“THE EASIEST YES,” Biles exclaimed to her partner. “I can’t wait to spend forever and ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”

Owens, a speedster safety who describes himself as a “kid from St. Louis,” shared on his IG: “Woke up this morning with a fiancée,” and to his future wife: “ready for forever with you.” Kudos to Owens, as it was clearly a surprise proposal: “she really had no clue what was coming,” he noted on IG.

Photos of the couple show Owens in a suit on bended knee, while a gleeful Biles, decked out in a black dress, beams at the ring. She then jumps into his arms in a picturesque gazebo. The couple also share a kiss with champagne glasses and a video reveals the dazzling ring. Biles and Owens had been vacationing in Las Vegas.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
