Olympic Gymnast Expecting Baby After Suffering Miscarriage

Shawn Johnson

Olympic gold medal gymnast Shawn Johnson and her husband, Andrew East, are expecting their first child together.

East announced the news on his own Instagram account by sharing a short video from their pregnancy announcement photo shoot showing the parents-to-be holding up a tiny pair of baby sneakers.

Although not yet born, baby East already has their own Instagram account that boasts more than 69,000 followers, features a number of pictures from the photo shoot, and has already posted to their Instagram Story. News of the couple’s baby on the way comes less than two years after Johnson and East revealed that they had suffered a miscarriage just two days after learning that they were expecting.

“We feel like a lot of people go through this so we wanted to share it,” the Olympian said. “We believe God’s got a bigger plan for us. All we can do is be positive otherwise we just sink into a hole.”
