Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles has found love at last! The 20-year-old understandably has had to put all pursuit of romance and dating at the bottom of her priorities list as she worked unfailingly hard to achieve her Olympic dreams. Now, however, she has officially declared herself off the market in a recent Instagram post with her new beau.
Although she did not reveal the name or identity of her new boyfriend in the post, People was able to identify him as a fellow gymnast, 23-year-old Stacey Ervin.
In the Instagram photo, Simone is seen gazing up at him lovingly, clearly smitten with her new man.
Her caption of the photo seems to say it all: “Always smiling with you.”
Biles took Ervin as her date for her big night, when she was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame, after which Ervin posted his own sugar-sweet Instagram post that just melts our hearts.
Prior to this Insta-official announcement of love, Biles had been openly candid about not really having time for a love life.
“I have never had a boyfriend in my life,” she said earlier this year. “At 20 years old I feel like you should have gone through those things and gone on dates. I have been on like, maybe one proper date.”
Well, the Olympic gymnast is certainly in the throes of love now! We’re glad to see her happy and joyful, and we wish nothing but the best for this adorable new couple!
