Simone Biles celebrated her husband Jonathan Owens’ first NFL touchdown with a sweet social media post on Thanksgiving Day. Ultimately, the Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions 29-22. According to the 28-year-old safety, it was his first touchdown since high school, which made it even more special.

“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.”

On Thursday, the 26-year-old gymnast attended Ford Field in Detroit. She showed off her hubby’s success with multiple posts to X as the game unfolded. On her Instagram story, she shared a sweet picture from the sidelines as she greeted her husband with a kiss.

In spite of her hectic schedule of practices and competitions, Biles has been able to attend several of her husband’s games in person, according to CNN. She donned an all-black ensemble, emerald green sunglasses, and a custom jacket with Owens’ number 34 in Green Bay’s colors.

“A PACKERS WIN BABY!!!!!!!!! Happy Thanksgiving,” Biles wrote on X in a separate post after the game.

Their personal sports careers and relationships seem to be well-balanced. The Today Show’s Hoda Kotb interviewed Biles about her plans to compete at the upcoming Paris Olympics in September. According to People, Biles is taking all the time she needs to prepare for the gold medal. The 2024 Paris Olympics featured a Thanksgiving commercial with Houston artist Megan Thee Stallion to ramp up the hype around the sports-filled event.
