Simone Biles paid a visit to the massive Texas mansion she is building with her husband, NFL star Jonathan Owens.
The 26-year-old gold medalist – who recently returned to gymnastics for the first time in two years and confirmed she hopes to compete at the 2024 Olympics – took a break from her busy schedule to check on the progress of what will soon be her new abode.
She shared some snaps of the progress of her massive home on her Instagram Story and in a post.
Simone couldn’t hide her excitement as she grinned from ear to ear as she stood in her massive mansion and showed off the wood-paneled interior.
However, on her Instagram Story, the athlete seemed very happy that one section of the house now houses drywall.
“We have drywall,” she said, along with a crying face emoji.
In addition to the drywall, Simone was thrilled that the sliding doors were completed as she shared a photo of the stunning view.
In the first snapshot she posted, the sports star threw her hands in the air while holding her house keys and smiled broadly as the rafters stood behind her.
She also proved that she wasn’t afraid to get dirty for the house as she shared a photo of the dirt-covered shoes she wore from Prada slides before entering the house.
Simon uploaded a shot of one section of the house which features high ceilings and wooden beams, and is clearly still under construction.
The last photo she shared was of their sliding glass doors that showed a stunning view of the lake behind their home.
She captioned the snaps: “Eeeep.”
The gymnast posts frequent updates about the progress of her home.
Just last month, I showed off the entryway and sliding doors.
“I can’t decide if this is the hallway of my dreams or the one in my nightmares,” she joked in another shot, which showed a long hallway that was still in the middle of construction.
Simon then took a closer look at the stunning lake behind the house surrounded by greenery.
“This is my favorite view,” she gushed.
The Olympian then showed off the exterior of the sprawling palace, adding: “The tiles are there,” with plenty of exclamation marks.
Simone first revealed that she and Jonathan, who married in April, were building a house together in March.
At the time, she shared a selfie of herself and the 28-year-old footballer standing on a large piece of barren land, captioning it: “House made with love and dreams.” Cheers to the ground breaking.
Since then, she has constantly documented her progress on her Instagram account.
In August, she celebrated with her followers when the first set of stairs in the house were completed.
She shared that she was planning to include a master bedroom with a private balcony, a game room, a bar, a theater, and a bathroom on the second floor.
The property is believed to be located in the greater Houston area, where Simone spent her childhood.
The athlete made her triumphant return to gymnastics in August – following a two-year hiatus from the sport after suffering mental health issues that forced her to withdraw from multiple events at the 2020 Games.
At the time, she said she was suffering from what are called “sprains” — a mental block that makes gymnasts feel like they are “lost in the air.”
She later implied that she came back to life because of the sexual assault she suffered at the hands of pedophile doctor Larry Nassar.
She was one of more than 150 gymnasts abused by Larry, the former national team doctor, during his 30-year career, and in 2019, she said the trauma of the attacks left her suffering suicidal thoughts.
In September, she revealed on the Today show that she wanted to compete at next summer’s Games in Paris, France – but admitted she would “have to take care of herself” more than she did in Tokyo and is undergoing treatment “to make sure of that”. Everything is consistent.
A source told the Daily Mail in June that it was her husband Jonathan who convinced Simone to return to gymnastics.
