Instead of her instantly recognizable face, Jonathan revealed that “her work ethic was really the first thing that kind of caught my eye.”

The Houston Texans football star added that he had “never really watched gymnastics before I first started talking to her. When I met her, I honestly didn’t know who she was.”

“It was just like, ‘Oh, she has a lot of followers—she must be pretty good or something,” Jonathan continued. “That’s how I would tell people and they’d be like: ‘Simone Biles?! You for real, the gymnast?! And I’m like, ‘Man, she’s good like that?!”

Many fans on social media were a little skeptical of his story though, no matter how sweet.
