Biles and a few pals posed for snaps in the department store, dressed in coordinating denim looks
Simone Biles sure knows how to celebrate her friends!
The Olympian, 26, joined her friend Kayla Simone on her birthday this weekend, as she surprised Biles and five other pals with an all-denim photo shoot at a JCPenney photography studio.
On her Instagram Story, Kayla revealed that the photo shoot wasn’t entirely expected by Biles and her other friends.
“Surprised my girls with a @JCPenneyPortraits photo shoot for my birthday and it did not disappoint,” she wrote.

In the clip soundtracked by Fergie’s “Glamorous,” the seven friends posed in an assortment of denim — Biles in a denim skirt, top and white western boots — as they rested their heads on each other’s shoulders.
A clip shared later showed the group managing to keep their composure despite laughing through the hilariously sweet bonding experience.
“Best birthday gift to myself EVER. We had so much fun 😂,” Kayla captioned the video. Biles also shared highlights from the photo shoot on her own Instagram Story.
The gymnast is no stranger to photo shoots herself, as she and husband Jonathan Owens posed for an adorable autumnal session earlier this month. In the pics, Biles opted for much less denim, and instead wore a black minidress, a black leather jacket and some seasonal boots. She accessorized with a diamond necklace featuring the spouses’ shared last name, “Owens.”
“‘Tis the season,” Biles captioned the post, as Owens responded, “You look so amazing baby 🧡.”
Last month, Biles revealed on the Today show that she no longer sees gymnastics as “the end all be all anymore” in her life. Instead, the seven-time Olympic medalist said she sees the sport as “something I get to come in and have the privilege of doing.”
“I don’t feel like it’s the end all be all anymore, as before I kind of felt like that,” she explained. “I get to go home to my husband, to my dogs, to my house and all of the things. So it feels really good.”
Biles also opened up about supporting Owens, who plays safety for the Green Bay Packers.
“It’s been really fun supporting what he loves to do,” Biles said. “Obviously, he’s in Green Bay right now so my season just ended. I’m super excited to get out there to Green Bay for the holidays to support him.”
