Previously, the couple met on social media and quickly hit it off.
Simon said Wall Street Journal that the couple had connected via social media in March 2020 just before the pandemic.
“He would say I slid into his DMs,” Biles revealed a year later. I saw him and I was like, “Oh, he’s so cute,” so I said hi. Then I saw he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a bit, and then we went to hang out after a week or two.
Details about the couple’s upcoming wedding have been kept under wraps, but according to People, Simone has already chosen a wedding dress as well as a date and venue.
