If there was ever a day for Simone Biles to brush off naysayers regarding her marriage to Jonathan Owens, that day is her wedding anniversary! The Olympic gymnast, 27, and the Chicago Bears player, 28 exchanged vows (twice!) in 2023. As tomorrow (6th May) marks their wedding anniversary, Biles took to Instagram to share touching reminiscences, particularly highlighting the pivotal role her mother, Nellie Biles, played in ensuring her well-being on that significant day.

Nellie Biles, Simone’s support system, despite not being her biological mother, has been by her side through every wedding preparation and life’s journey since being adopted at six. However, Simone recently revealed experiencing moments of “blackout” before her second wedding on May 6, 2024, subsequent to her initial marriage on April 22, 2023. Even though her mother initially cautioned her about the potential consequences of neglecting self-care.

Biles took to Instagram, initiating a series of stories with the announcement, “Since our wedding anniversary is tomorrow, I’m going to do a weekend throwback of some of my favorite pictures & moments from the weekend.” Among these stories, one stood out, depicting a moment where her mother’s warning echoed in her mind, as Biles recounted, “Momma Biles is probably telling me I need to eat before I black out...”
