Owens, 26, popped the question to Biles, 24, in a gazebo at sunset on Valentine's Day, presenting her with an oval diamond ring designed by jeweler ZoFrost.

A week later, the lovebirds have already made some decisions about their nuptials, revealing to fans that they will hire a wedding planner to handle the details of their beachside affair.

Answering fan questions, Biles said she is 'obsessed' with wedding planning but doesn't think she'll be a 'bridezilla,' and that she will be juggling the wedding with building a house.

The Olympic gold medalist also floated some possibilities for their honeymoon, and shared that they definitely want kids at some point in the future.

Biles said she was totally surprised when Owens popped the question last Monday after two years of dating — and though he clearly had a special night planned, it seemed normal because it was Valentine's Day.

'I was completely clueless, because it was Valentine's Day, so it was like, whatever, it's normal,' she said in a video. 

'When we got there the guy was like, "Hey, I'm taking pictures of all the couples coming through, yada yada, so I really had no idea,' she added.

Since then, they've already made some wedding plans, which Biles is thoroughly enjoying. 

'Wedding planning has been going well so far, it's so exciting for me, I'm obsessed,' she wrote.

'I don't think I'll be a bridezilla because I'm making sure I know exactly what I want. Also I'll definitely hire a planner [because] between this building a house, our hands are full,' she added.

They seem to be building their house in her hometown of Houston, and she told a fan: 'Houston will always be my home no matter what happens.'

All about Simone Biles' diamond ring 

'Jonathan has been a client and friend for a few years and I had the pleasure of helping him to create this very special ring,' jeweler ZoFrost revealed to DailyMail.com.

'He and I started the process together a few months ago to select the perfect diamond for Simone that was handpicked by Jonathan. He wanted to add a special touch to the ring by adding a halo around the oval diamond,' he said.  

Owens chose a three-carat stone that is an F color. Diamonds get color grades from D to J, with D being absolutely colorless and J having slightly detected color. F is a high-quality diamond that's considered colorless, with only slight color detected by an expert gemologists.

The diamond has a clarity grade of VVS2 (Very Very Slightly Included), which has inclusions that are very difficult to see under 10x magnification.   

'So 2 but feels like 4 or 5 years,' she said. 'Wouldn't change it for the world and when you know you know.'

The bride- and groom-to-be announced their happy news on Instagram on February 15, sharing several photos of the moment Owens got down on one knee to pop the question on Valentine's Day. 

The loved-up couple beamed in the images, which also show Owens lifting Biles up and kissing her. 

'THE EASIEST YES,' the pro gymnast gushed. 'I can’t wait to spend forever ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.'

A closeup and a video spotlighted Biles' new diamond ring, which features a three-carat oval-cut diamond on a band inlaid with more diamonds. 

Owens commented on Biles' celebratory post, writing simply: 'Ready for forever with you.'

The Houston Texans football safety also posted several photos on Instagram, writing: 'Woke up this morning with a fiancée.'

'Appreciate my dawg @don_julio314 for helping me set everything up, she really had no clue what was coming,' he added. '[Jeweler] @zofrost you went crazy on this one bro really made the night special.'  

Jewelry designer ZoFrost, of ZoFrost Co, revealed to DailyMail.com that the design was a team effort, with Owens handpicking the 'perfect diamond' himself.

It's a three-carat oval stone with F color and VVS2 clarity. 

ZoFrost said they started working together several months ago, and added the extra smaller diamonds for a special touch. 

Days after they shared their engagement news, the couple appeared together on the Today show to talk about the exciting time, and Biles beamed as she admitted her ring was a better piece of bling than her four gold Olympic medals.

'It's definitely my most prized possession now and I'm always wearing it,' she said.

'I was washing my hair the other day and I took it off, just in case — I didn't know if it was gonna get caught or anything — and I have to ask my mom, "When do you take it off, do you ever take it off?" and stuff like that. But it definitely beats a gold medal.'

She revealed that they didn't have long to celebrate immediately after the proposal, saying: 'We literally came back from a red eye from Vegas, did the engagement the 14th, then I flew out, so I didn't get to see him for three days. I just got back yesterday.

'So we kind of started planning a little bit over the phone. But I'm sure we'll do a lot of that today, but we have a couple of specs that we know. But it's still in the process.'

Biles admitted that she though a proposal might be coming this year, but was surprised that it happened on Valentine's Day and it was 'such a shock.' 

Owens admitted that 'a lot of planning' went into the proposal, which took about two and a half months to set up.

'I kind of started talking to the jeweler in early December, just getting everything situated. And my cousin, he helped with a lot, just kind of doing stuff for me when I was busy, calling the restaurant, setting everything up.

'But she really had no clue, she thought it was a normal day,' he added.

Owens also said that he talked to Biles' father before proposing, admitting that he was a 'little nervous at first.' 

The gymnast was glowing during the morning show interview, singing Owens' praises. 

'I love him,' she said. 'We have a great time together. Our personalities match right up. We have the same sense of humor. And he's just great. He's an athlete too, so we really understand each other, and I think that's why our relationship has been seamless.

'We clicked really really well in the beginning because we're athletes and we have the same busy schedules,' she went on. 

'But other than that, since it was kind of a COVID relationship. We're with each other 24/7, so I feel like now when we're not with each other it's almost weird. We're always texting or calling each other. It's kind of gross in a way.'

Owens also had sweet things to say, revealing that he fell for her just a month into their relationship because of how much his dog, Zeus, loved her.  

'My dog really loved her,' he said. 'I could kind of see his face like whenever I would pick my bookbag up in my apartment, he would think we're leaving to go to her place, so he would sprint to the front door. And I'd be like, "Huh, you really like her!"'

'We just kind of started hanging out more and more and you start to want to see a person … I started to want to see her more,' he added.

Biles — who has six Olympic medals, including four gold from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics — has been dating her beau for a little under two years. 

They first connected via social media in March 2020, right before the pandemic shut down the US.

'He would say I slid into his DMs,' Biles told the Wall Street Journal. 'I saw him and I was like, "Oh, he's pretty cute," so I said hi … and then I saw that he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.' 

Owens, surprisingly, admitted that he didn't actually know about the gold medalist was when she contact him.

'I didn’t know who she was,' he told Texas Monthly. 'I just hadn’t heard of her, and when I told her that, that’s one of the things she liked.'

He said they ended up 'hanging out right before the pandemic.'

'It was one of the few times in her life where everything was just shut off and she couldn't do anything. So we used it to get to know each other — really get to know each other. It created our bond and made it stronger. Now I'm so thankful.'

They made things Instagram official on August 2 of that year, when Biles shared a photo of them smiling together and another of Owens kissing her cheek.

The couple clearly got serious quickly, and in 2020 Owens spent Christmas with Biles and her family. 

They celebrated their first Valentine's Day together last year, with Biles writing: 'Lucky to be loved by you.'

In March, they took a romantic trip to Belize.

'This was a match made in heaven,' Owens told Texas Monthly. 'There's no better person for me. She loves me, she's so affectionate. I just love that. And it's just intoxicating seeing how much work she puts into everything.'

She has sung his praises, too. On his birthday last year, she posted a gushing tribute on Instagram. 

'"HAPPY 26th BIRTHDAY BABE,' she wrote. '@jowens_3 I love you so much. Can't wait to celebrate you when I get home! thanks for keeping me sane during the craziest times. an ear to vent too, someone to share fun times with and make the best of memories. not sure how I got so lucky what I'd do without you!

Owens was also there to support Biles when she got home from the Tokyo Olympics last summer, after she made the devastating decision to pull out of several events due to a terrifying condition known as 'the twisties.'

Biles withdrew from competition after developing the psychological condition, in which gymnasts lose their ability to feel where they are in the air — which, for athletes who are flipping and twisting feet above the ground, can lead to catastrophic injury.

'Imma ride with you through whatever baby,' Owens wrote to Biles on Instagram.

'Your strength and courage is unmatched and you inspire me more and more everyday SB. You always gone be my champ baby and don't you ever forget that, i love you so much and i can't wait till you come home and i get to see that beautiful smile again. You know I'm always here for you baby,' he said
