Simone Biles Celebrates Husband Jonathan Owens’ First NFL Touchdown On Thanksgiving Day

Owens said after the game that he had not scored a touchdown since high school.

Simone Biles celebrated her husband’s first NFL touchdown on Thanksgiving Day as Jonathan Owens’ Green Bay Packers team ultimately beat the Detroit Lions. Biles celebrated Owens’ success with multiple posts to X as the game unfolded.

According to CNN, Biles has been seen at several Packers games supporting Owens in person. The two married in April when Owens was still a member of Biles’ hometown team, the Houston Texans. 

Owens said after the game that he had not scored a touchdown since high school, which made his scoop and score all the sweeter.

“I didn’t believe it, it didn’t feel like real life at first,” Owens said. “It was my first time being in the end zone since high school. Man, it was a great feeling.”

In response to the touchdown, Biles seemed equally as excited and proud of her husband, writing, “THATS MY HUSBAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY MANS MY MANS MY MANSSSSS.”

In a separate post, after the game, which Owens’ Packers won 29-22, Biles wrote, “A PACKERS WIN BABY!!!!!!!!! happy thanksgiving.”

Since their wedding, Biles and Owens have mostly been a couple communicating over long distances as they pursue their individual careers in sport. Biles indicated her plans to compete in the upcoming Paris Olympics during an interview with the Today show’s Hoda Kotb in September. The 2024 Paris Olympics featured a Thanksgiving Day commercial with Houston rap star Megan Thee Stallion, most likely an attempt to drum up public excitement ahead of the international event. Owens will likely support Biles’ efforts in Paris from afar as he did while she set gymnastics world records at the world championships in Berlin. Owens, like most of the gymnastics world, regards Biles as the GOAT.

In a post to X, he captioned a recent post of Biles’ floor routine with a goat emoji and the word “Elite.”
