Aside from the series of achievements the world champion gymnast has garnered internationally, Simone Biles, 22, also won the heart of Stacey Ervin Jr. who also happens to be a former coach and director of men’s gymnastics, and specializes in various high-flying tricks. The athletic and internet-viral couple has been dating for two years and both aren’t afraid of letting the world see their budding love.
After the video footage of Ervin cheering and supporting his love for Biles went viral, the world has been all eyes on their relationship status.
According to Biles, Ervin has always been proud of her. She stated that he often screams on the phone just to tell her how proud he is of her after Bile’s many victories. He has designated himself as the gymnastics champion’s number one fan and supporter. Biles further added that with all the things they both have in common, starting with them being gymnastics, understanding comes easy for them both. A good example would be how Ervin gave Biles the space she needed when she was training for the Olympics.
The couple became ‘Instagram official’ after Biles posted a photo of her and Ervin when they were both out for her induction into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame. He was her date for the event and ever since then, the couple had been displaying their feelings across social media platforms, although Biles admitted that the experience was first nerve-wracking but she was soon able to adapt and now everything feels normal to her.- Advertisement -
The couple was often seen replying to each other’s posts on social media and by February, Biles and Ervin welcomed a new member into their family – a French bulldog whom they called Lilo. Meanwhile, in 2018, Biles released an autobiography, co-authored by Michelle Burford with the title Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance. Ervin, on the other hand, had been mentoring and helping other athletes get better after suffering from a concussion in a wrestling event. Such an incident helped Ervin realize that he wanted to have lasting impacts on people and so he started mentoring other athletes.
At present, Simon Biles and Ervin are either training, giving relationship advice, or just having time for themselves. The couple both enjoy simple things such as riding scooters or going into some horror house and all of these started right after Ervin took Biles out for sushi.
