The Olympic gold-medalist announced the happy news via Instagram on Tuesday, February 15, after her now-fiancé Jonathan Owens got down on one knee on Valentine's Day.
The 24-year-old shared a series of snaps from the moment Owens popped the question on Monday, February 14, including a photo of the couple sharing a kiss and a close up look at her sparkling new ring.

"Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming 😂 @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special 🙌🏽 📸: @medronn," he added.
Earlier in the day on Monday, Owens shared an adorable snap to wish the gymnast a Happy Valentine's Day — and he may have even been dropping a subtle clue in the caption about his plans to propose later that night. "My better half ❤️" he wrote. "Happy Valentine's Day baby, here's to many more together 🤞🏽I love you so much ❤️❤️."
Owens' proposal to Biles comes less than two years after the pair went public with their relationship in August 2020 after sparking speculation online for weeks.
One year later, Biles' man proved he was in it for the long run, as he stood by her side after she withdrew from the Olympics in Tokyo in the summer of 2021 amid struggles with her mental health.
"Imma ride with you through whatever baby ❤️," he penned in the sweet message at the time. “Your strength and courage is unmatched and you inspire me more and more everyday SB 🤞🏽You always gone be my champ baby and don’t you ever forget that, I love you so much and I can’t wait till you come home and I get to see that beautiful smile again. You know I’m always here for you baby ❤️❤️.”
