UPI News Service, 09/05/2017
Simone Biles gave fans a new glimpse of her first-ever boyfriend on Labor Day.
The 20-year-old Olympic gymnast and recent "Dancing with the Stars" contestant shared a picture with Stacey Ervin, 23, Monday on Instagram after going public with their relationship in August.
"happy labor day yall," she captioned the snapshot for her 3.5 million followers.
The photo shows Biles and Ervin smiling as they pose for the camera in coordinating swimwear and mirrored sunglasses. Biles wears a black and cranberry-colored bikini, with Ervin in cranberry-colored swim shorts.
Biles went Instagram official with Ervin on Aug. 21, telling her fans she's "always smiling" with her beau.
Ervin, who is also a gymnast, had attended her USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame induction ceremony days prior.
"Words cannot express how incredibly proud I am of you, all you've accomplished & how well you carry yourself," he said of Biles in a post at the time. "You make me feel like I am the luckiest man alive."
Biles' relationship with Ervin marks her first real foray into dating.
The four-time Olympic gold medalist said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in April that she's never had a boyfriend.
"I have never had a boyfriend in my life," she said. "At 20 years old I feel like you should have gone through those things and gone on dates. I have been on, like, maybe one proper date."
