Even though we tend to think of them as superhumans, both NFL players and Olympic athletes are regular people like everybody else... They just happen to be extremely talented, way more disciplined and make a lot of money.

They have the same fears, desires, and feelings as the rest of us, and it's not unusual to see them hanging out and spending some quality time with their significant other. If not, just ask Houston Texans' Jonathan Owens and gymnast Simone Biles.

Owens Reacts To Seeing Biles On The Big Screen

Biles and Owens have become one of the most popular and beloved couples in the sports industry.

However, the safety hasn't found the same success as his better half, which is why the Texans pulled a bit of a prank on him during his first career start.

Right after Owens managed to snatch an interception, they put Biles on the Big Screen to mess with him, something that didn't go unnoticed:

“That f***** me up. They just put my girl on the screen. Bro that messed me up, they put my girl on the screen. I looked up, and I’m like ahh," Owens jokingly said, per Essentially Sports.

A Pandemic Romance

Owens and Biles met online before the pandemic and have been inseparable ever since, stating that the lockdown was a bit of a blessing in disguise for both of them:

“We ended up hanging out right before the pandemic,” Owens said, per Glamour “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.”

Owens Didn't Even Know Who Biles Was

Moreover, the NFL star reportedly didn't even know who she was before trying to slide in her DMs.

As ironic as it may sound, that ended up working in his favor as she was overwhelmed by fame and all the pressure she was dealing with at the time:

“I didn’t know who she was," Owens told the Texas Monthly last year. “I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.”

Biles is currently taking a break from competitive gymnastics after going through some mental health issues and struggling with anxiety during the Tokyo Olympics:

"We have to protect our mind and our body, rather than just go out there and do what the world wants us to do," she said, per Bolavip. "I had to do what's right for me and not jeopardize my health and well-being."

Fortunately, she has her significant other supporting her right by her side through these difficult and demanding times.
