Raising an Olympian is no easy feat, and we bet Simone Biles would say being raised by Mrs. Nellie Biles was no walk in the park either. We all know Caribbean parents are hard to impress and the elder Biles made it clear in our interview with her that she is the “first one to correct Simone” and remind her to be grateful for all of her blessings and remember her talent is from God.

That’s just one of the many gems we got from Nellie Biles when she stopped by to chat with us about the exciting Rio Olympics and life before and after Simone’s fame — and how the Olympic star is just one of four children she has to make sure she gives the proper attention.

Watch our chat in the video above and let us know if you’re as in awe of Nellie Biles as we are.
