Owens, who plays football for the Houston Texans, and Biles met via the internet prior to the pandemic. In January 2021, Owens told Texas Monthly that the pandemic shutdown helped them get to know each other better.
“It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off and she couldn’t do anything,” he said. “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.”
