Simone Biles’ boyfriend, Stacey Ervin Jr., shared some motivational words to her family in via an Instagram Story after the Olympian’s brother was arrested in connection with a triple-homicide.
“The strongest people I’ve ever met have not been given an easier life,” the post on read. “They’ve learned to create strength and happiness from dark places.”
That same day, the 22-year-old gymnast went on to post a photo of the pair smiling together.
“Missing you a lil extra today,” she captioned the image, to which her boyfriend, a gymnast turned pro wrestler, replied, “I miss you too babe ? I’ll see you very soon!”
