Simone Biles, 25, is mistaken for a child, is offered a coloring book

Maybe the pilot will offer her wings next time.

Simone Biles, one of the most recognizable gymnasts in the world, was recently mistaken for a kid on a flight and asked if she wanted a coloring book.

“Not the flight attendant who tries to give me a coloring book when I board,” the six-foot gold medalist wrote in a selfie of himself on the plane.

“I said ‘no, I’m good, I’m 25’,” she added.

And while the flight attendant may not have recognized her, Biles sits nicely with her combined total of 32 Olympic and World Championship medals and recently received the 2022 Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Joe Biden.

The White House honored Biles for her athletic abilities and for advocating for “[athletes’] mental health and safety, children in the foster care system and victims of sexual violence.”

The athlete’s fiancée, Jonathan Owens, 26, praised Biles after the ceremony last week.

“You are one of the strongest people I know and so deserve it, I am so blessed to experience this with you,” the NFL player wrote on Instagram.

Simone Biles hilariously revealed that a flight attendant mistook her for a child.

The couple announced their engagement in February on social media, with Biles writing it was “the easiest yes.”

“Can’t wait to spend forever and ever with you, you are everything I’ve dreamed of and more! let’s marry FIANCÉ 💍🥺🥲🤎 @jowens_3,” she also captioned the post.

Biles is currently planning the wedding and the couple will tie the knot in 2023.

“One step closer to becoming Mrs. Owens,” Biles wrote in May accompanying a photo of her and Owens on the beach.
