Mrs. Owens: Last month, she was spoiled with a lavish bachelorette party from her closest gal pals in Belize
After one fan cheekily commented that the post was an ‘ad for Raya,’ Biles, who met the NFL through the exclusive dating site, replied with three laughing emojis.
Earlier this month, she hosted a stunning Cloud 9 themed bridal shower in Houston, Texas, following a lavish bachelorette party with her closest gal pals in Belize last month.
‘On Cloud 9 BRIDAL SHOWER,’ she wrote in her caption. ‘Feeling so loved & blessed’.
Over a year ago, the Ohio native got engaged to the football player on Valentine’s Day in 2022.
In celebration of her upcoming wedding reportedly coming later this year, Simone wore a beautiful, embroidered gown with a side leg slit to reveal her toned legs.
She donned a pair of white sandal heels with straps tied up to her calves.
For jewelry, she donned a pair of classic white pearl earrings, diamond-encrusted bangles, and, of course, her three-carat oval-cut diamond ring.
She looked flawless in a light makeup look featuring full, fluttering lashes to showcase her natural beauty.
Her raven black tresses were styled in loose waves and parted to the side.
At the lavish bash held at The Juliana, Simone posed with her bridal party dressed up in pastel blue dresses and her closest gal pals in different shades of blue.
Her bridal shower was adorned top to bottom with white balloons everywhere while guests enjoyed flutes of champagne topped with white cotton candy clouds.
Simone was also snapped smiling brightly as she cut into a three-tiered cake with white frosting.
At the event, she also took various snaps with her grandmother, Nellie Biles — who adopted her as a child and raised her as her own.
Her grandmother — who Simone calls her mom — looked elegant in a royal blue, half-sleeved dress.
At one point during the party, the Houston-raised Olympian was snapped cradling her friend’s baby.
During the bridal shower, guests enjoyed fancy hors d’oeuvres and on-theme cocktails.
Recently, Simone and her friends enjoyed an extravagant bachelorette party in Belize.
Earlier this year, Simone also revealed that her and Jonathan had bought land together and were embarking on a journey to build their dream home together.
The soon-to-be bride and her fiancé first confirmed their relationship by sharing photos to Instagram in 2020.
Two years later, the football player surprised Simone with a proposal during their romantic Valentine’s Day dinner.

Previously, the pair reportedly met on social media and quickly hit it off.
Simone told Wall Street Journal that the pair 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 pretty cute,” so I said hi. And then I saw that he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.’
Details about the couple’s upcoming wedding has been kept under wraps, but according to People, Simone has already picked out a wedding dress as well as a date and a venue.
