“Happy birthday to the man of my dreams 💛,” the athlete wrote on a photo of the couple exchanging a kiss surrounded by sunflowers. “So many things I love about you. Your energy lights up an entire room. You’re a true gentleman and you always put others first! Your mindset, grit and your passion for greatness. Twenty six will be a great one! Never stop being you Stacey Ervin Jr. I love you. 224.”
Fans took to the comments to show their love for the happy couple. “So happy you have found a partner who supports you and is not intimidated by your greatness,” read one comment while another stated, “Such a beautiful picture! and happy birthday to your boo!!”
The sweet sentiment comes in the throes of her recent family drama. In Touch previously reported that the gymnast’s brother, Tevin Biles-Thomas, was arrested and charged for triple murder on August 29 after a fatal shooting that left three people dead. The incident took place back in December 2018 at a New Year’s Eve party, a spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office told In Touch in a statement.
“Around 11:30 p.m., an uninvited group walked into the house and an altercation ensued between the uninvited guests and those who were invited,” the statement continued. “The altercation led to gunfire and multiple victims were shot, three of which were fatal. Several party attendees fled the scene.”
After the 24-year-old’s arrest, Simone’s boyfriend took to social media to show support for his lady and her family. “The strongest people I’ve met have not been given an easier life,” read the quote that he shared to his Instagram Story on August 30. “They’ve learned to create strength and happiness from dark places.” That same day, Simone mentioned that she could use her man in her time of need; posting a photo of the two with the caption, “Miss you a little extra today.” It looks like Simone has found true love and is leaning on him during this difficult time.
