Aww! Superstar gymnast Simone Biles has found more than just Olympic glory at the 2016 Rio games, as it looks like she’s also got a brand new boyfriend! You’ve got to see the adorable exchanges she’s been sharing with hot Brazilian gymnast Arthur Nory Mariano.
The cat’s out of the bag – America’s premiere female gymnast at the 2016 Summer Olympics is officially off the market. Gymnast Simone Biles, 19, has found more than gold medal dreams while competing in Rio as she’s also picked herself up a brand new sweetie, Brazilian gymnast Arthur Nory Mariano, 23. The pint-sized phenom first posted a photo of the pair embracing back on July 29 and she captioned it, “My Brazilian Boyfriend,”along with a heart emoji, the Brazilian flag and a smiley emoji blowing a kiss, which he happily retweeted. They’re wearing their respective country’s national track suits while hanging outside in the bright Rio sunshine.

Arthur was also quick with the praise when Simone absolutely crushed it in the women’s gymnastics All-Around prelims Aug 7, especially with her breathtaking performance in the floor exercise. “YOU DID AMAZING TODAY! Queen Biles!
#MyLove,” he tweeted, along with a giant heart emoji. In return, she thanked her “babe” and wished him luck in the Men’s gymnastic events the following day. How adorable!

When Arthur failed to make the podium after the Brazilian team finished in sixth place in the Men’s All-Around, he had Simone right there to console him over dinner in the Olympic Village. She showed off a Snapchat pic of her smiling man sitting across the table from her with the caption, “Eating dinner with champ,” so clearly he’s still a winner in her heart! It’s unclear if the pair were already a couple before Simone headed south for the Rio games, but they sure aren’t afraid to flaunt their adoration now!
