With the last Olympic event, everyone got to know Simone Biles. The girl has attracted so many eyes due to his achievement as an Olympian. She was one of the main stars, especially in gymnastics. She gets so much achievement all thanks to all of her people who always support her every day. Apart from her parents, Ron and Nellie Biles and her siblings, there is another one who always supports her through ups and downs. The individual is no one other than her boyfriend named Stacey Ervin Jr. Who is Stacey Ervin Jr.? How did these two meet and become one?
Simone Biles is considered a private one. There is only a little bit known about her personal life. However, when it comes to her partner, there is no doubt that Stacey Ervin Jr. is the one that means to her the most.
Simone Biles and her boyfriend Stacey Ervin Jr. decided to go public in 2017. Since then, the lovebird has always been together and has not been afraid to show off their love to each other. They love spending time together in the exotic locations and they are not afraid to show the world that they are in love by showing the PDA in their Instagram posts. By just looking at their Instagram posts, one can tell how much they love each other.
Actually, the love that they have now is not an instant one. In fact, these two has always been close. Before deciding to be an item, they were friends. As leaked by People, Simone Biles met Stacey Ervin Jr. for the first time in 2014 in the event known as the P & G Gymnastics Championships. Just like Simone Biles, Stacey Ervin Jr. is also a gymnast, which explains why they met at such an event.
When they were still friends, Simone Biles sent a Snapchat to Stacey Ervin Jr. and told him that he is cute. At the time, it did not mean anything and instead of developing a romantic relationship, these two developed a friendship. Love was never an option for them as they focused on their life as gymnastics and athletes who have to spend their time more on training instead of watching movies or spending time doing some other activities with their loved ones.
Three years after they met, they got close again after Simone Biles came back from competing on Dancing with the Stars. At the time, Stacey Ervin Jr. was working as a coach at a gym belonging to her family. As they got a chance to meet often and to spend more time together, their feelings grew from friendship to become a romantic one.
When they were at the early stage of their relationship, Stacey Ervin Jr. took Simone Biles to a sushi restaurant as the first date. It is kind of funny because she actually was not that fond of sushi and eating this food at a restaurant. She said in an interview to People in 2017 that her boyfriend took her to a sushi place even though he actually knew that she doesn’t like sushi. While she did not like the food served in the date place, she said that the date was perfect and everything went smoothly. She said she likes it because it was out of her comfort zone.
After their first date at a sushi restaurant, both Simone Biles and Stacey Ervin Jr. continued to spend their time together. Actually, they were not officially an item until August 2017.
After posting some pictures of them together on Instagram, Simone Biles started to be more open about her relationship with Stacey Ervin Jr. They always love to be together whenever they get the chance. These two were seen a couple of times attending events together and cheering each other when one of them was competing. There is no doubt that their relationship is solid and strong.
While some people might think that they are always together and cannot be separated, in fact, there were times when they decided to be apart in order to make their relationship better, which is clearly not easy for these two. As the gymnastics who compete in the world championships, they are really competitive and it is hard for them to balance their personal life with their life as gymnastics. Their training and competing schedules are already packed so it is worth applauding when they always find a time to make their relationship work.
Before deciding to be an item, both Simone Biles and Stacey Ervin Jr. were aware about the possibility of them having a hard time maintaining their relationship. According to her, both of them are realistic about how much time they can actually commit to one another and they know that their main priority is their career. The girl told People that her boyfriend is an elite athlete and he has traveled and stuff, that’s why he understands it. She added that they already know in each other’s lives they do not come first and that’s totally fine for them. So, their main focus is to do what they have to do and then they spend time together.
While it is hard for them to spend their time together to make their relationship work due to their life as gymnastics, their love keeps getting stronger. In October, Ervin posted something on Instagram saying that he will always be the biggest fan of his girlfriend. When she won something in Stuttgart, Germany, he also posted a photo of her on the medal podium saying that his woman is a 5x world champion in the all-around and he could not be more proud. He said that she gets hyped every time he watches her do her thing and that day was no exception. Knowing how much Stacey Ervin Jr. loves Simone Biles and how often he always shows his support to her, a lot of people praise him.
