Does Simone Biles have a Brazilian beau?

The U.S. Olympic gymnast, 19, has been having a blast preparing for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Texas native had a funny encounter with Michael Phelps and even got a good luck video message from Kim Kardashian West.

But just because she is determined to win gold doesn’t mean she hasn’t had time for other things – namely, joking around with the male athletes. Last week, Biles took to Twitter to share a photo of herself with 22-year-old Brazilian Olympic gymnast Arthur Nory, captioning a photo of the two gymnasts, “my Brazilian boyfriend.”

The two continued their social media love fest in Snapchats posted Friday ahead of the Opening Ceremony. In Nory’s photo, he captured a shot of a beaming Biles from across a dining hall and captioned the photo, “My babe.”

Biles posted a video zooming in on Nory with the caption, “babe @arthur.”

From Phelps and Nory to many more, Biles has posted several photos of herself with her team and other male athletes while in Rio.

And while it’s unclear whether this is real Rio love or a fun game for the two superstar gymnasts, they seem to be making the most of their time competing in Brazil. The Olympics kicked off Friday night with the Opening Ceremony and qualifications for both men’s and women’s gymnastics begin this weekend.
