Simone Biles is not afraid of sharing her struggles from on and off the gym floor. Some of the not-so-graceful moments have been shared to Instagram, including some hilarious fails and falls, but it hasn’t always been good times for the American gymnast.
Biles, 26, constantly shares Instagram Stories to reveal a side of her that fans rarely see. The four-time Olympic gold medalist and 14-time World Champion clearly understands that practice makes progress.
She recently married Green Bay Packers safety Jonathan Owens and is often seen kissing him on the sideline prior to his games.
The power couple recently made headlines for coming out on top against Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and his girlfriend Taylor Swift.
Simone Biles on growing up in foster care
Biles also recently opened up about the horrors of growing up in foster care with parents who did not care for her.
“I actually was a foster kid so I know some of the hardships that those kids go through,” said Biles. “When my siblings and I entered foster care, it was because our biological mom was stuggling with drug and alcohol abuse.
“I was three years old. I just remember us, as kids, being so hungry and I remember this cat that would get fed and not us. Thankfully, we actually got to stay in one foster home and we were all together.”
