ST. LOUIS — Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is engaged, and one St. Louis pizza place is already planning for the big day.

Biles made the announcement on social media Tuesday morning writing "Woke up a fiancée" on Twitter and "The easiest yes" on Instagram, sharing photos of her and her now-fiancé Jonathan Owens. 

Owens is a St. Louis native. He played football at CBC and now plays in the NFL for the Houston Texans. The pair had been dating since 2020.

Imo's Pizza already seems to be wedding planning for Biles and Owens. They tweeted their congratulations and offered to send some squares beyond compare for the reception.

Biles was seen chowing down on the St. Louis-style pizza when she was in town for the Olympic Gymnastics Team Trials last summer. Imo's shared a photo on Twitter of the Olympian sampling the provel cheese-covered staple.

After she left St. Louis, Biles tweeted that she was "already missing Imo's." But she didn't have to wait long to get her fix. Imo's sent her a care package full of pizzas shortly after she left for the Tokyo Olympics, and it was waiting for her when she got back home to Houston.

Biles even defended the St. Louis slice when she sat down with Jimmy Kimmel later that year. Kimmel was talking about their St. Louis connections, as Biles' now-fiancé is from here and so is Kimmel's wife. Kimmel called Imo's "very, very bad pizza," to which Biles replied "No, it’s not! That’s mean. Provel is the best!”
