Nellie Biles is a retired Belizean nurse who is widely famous as the adoptive mother of her granddaughter Simone Biles, an American artistic gymnast. Simone is one of the most successful gymnasts in history, with a total of 30 Olympic and World Championship medals to her name.
Furthermore, Nellie is a married woman and her husband, Ron Biles, whom she met in their college days. Since then, they have been together and have been through many ups and downs. Despite that, they have stuck with each other and are linked with Simone; people are concerned about Nellie's personal and professional life.
Beiles is reported to be a retired nurse. So, it is believed that she is now enjoying a retired life. Despite her retirement as a nurse, Biles is reported to be working alongside her husband. The married couple reportedly owns a gymnastics training center named World Champions Centre based in Spring, Texas. In the same training center, Simone also trains.
So, we can say that Biles lives a lavish life from her career earnings. Sports Brief has reported Nellie's net worth to be around $1 million to $5 million. Not to mention, a nurse working in the United States earns around $82,750, and the median is $77,600. During her professional work, Nellie may have earned in the same range.
Furthermore, Nellie is living a quality life which can be explored by exploring her social media handles.
As per a source, Nellie and her partner Ron met each other when Ron was in her college years. During that time, Ron was working in the Air Force. Nellie quickly embarked on her nursing career soon after her graduation. She eventually went on to co-own a series of nursing homes in Texas, solidifying her position as an integral figure in the healthcare industry.
On the other hand, Ron worked as an air traffic controller. After being in a relationship for some time, the Biles couple took their relationship to the next level and tied the knot. As the pair kept their wedding details private, we are unable to share their marriage date.
After some time of getting married, Nellie and her husband went on to welcome two children named Ron Biles Jr. and Adam.
Simone Biles was born on March 14, 1997, to her biological parents Shanon Biles and Kelvin Clemons. She is the third of four kids. Their mother was not able to take care of all of them. Due to that, the Biles siblings went in and out of foster care.
In 2003, when Simone was just six, she and her sister, Adria, were adopted by Ron and his wife, Nellie. After that, the family moved to their home in Spring, Texas. Upon taking Simone and Adria in, Nellie promised she would love the girls as if they were her own kids.
Eventually, Simone began calling her grandparents "Mom and Dad." Simone's adoption was followed by two years of counseling to ensure a smooth transition for the family. Apart from that, Simone's two brothers were adopted by Ron's sister Harriet. Furthermore, Simone loves her parents, and she has also made posts dedicated to them on social media.
In 2016, Simone's biological mother, Shanon, gave an interview with Daily Mail where she opened up about giving up all her kids for adoption. She said that it was a pretty difficult decision in her life. In the same way, Shanon went on to reveal that she sometimes has a short conversation with Simone.
Not only that, but Shanon said that she is proud of her daughter's achievements. She continued that her husband, Kelvin is not in touch with Simone like her.
Simone is widely regarded as one of the greatest gymnasts of all time. She has won a total of 7 Olympic medals, including four gold medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics and two more gold medals and a bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
In addition, Biles has won a record-breaking 25 medals at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, including 19 gold medals. She is known for her incredible skills and techniques, including the "Biles" and the "Yurchenko double pike."
