Shawn Johnson Receives the Best News of His Life After Last Year’s Miscarriage
In 2017, Shawn Johnson and Andrew East confessed in a heart-wrenching interview how Shawn had a miscarriage two days after she found out she was pregnant. While they mourned for their unborn baby, the couple is now ready to move on from their tragic past and are already expecting another child! Shawn Johnson East reveals she can’t wait to meet her baby and enter the life of motherhood!
The former renowned Olympic gymnast and her husband shared the exciting news that they’re expecting their first child on their Instagram and YouTube channel. Shawn shared a snap from her maternity photo shoot, revealing that they cannot wait to welcome the baby into the world and shower it with love. Shawn also tagged her husband and captioned the photo: We did it!
Their fans were indeed ecstatic to hear about the good news and flooded the comment section with congratulatory words and well wishes. The celebrity lovers also shared a photo where Shawn was cradling her baby bump while Andrew pointed in the direction of her belly, clearly trying to convey his excitement about the pregnancy. East also shared the big news on his Instagram account where he uploaded a photo of him and Shawn holding a tiny pair of baby sneakers.
The New Journey
Even though their baby isn’t born yet, the couple was delighted to know that it already received massive support from fans, gaining an astounding 20,000 followers on its own Instagram account. Shawn made a new Instagram account to document the baby’s journey after its birth.
The former Olympic gymnast reveals aside from documenting their baby’s life, she and her husband decided to create an account to share the things they’ll discover on this new journey, especially as they enter the uncharted territory of parenthood.
Shawn also confessed that the thought of becoming a mom was scary yet exciting at the same time. She revealed that they didn’t know where they’re going or how well they’ll do at raising their child — like every other parent, they’ll have to figure things out as they go and learn from their experience. Even with a million unanswered questions in their heads, Shawn and Andrew can’t wait to embark this journey and welcome their little bundle of joy into this world.
Their Tragic Past
In 2017, Shawn recalled how happy she was when she found out about her first pregnancy. But that joy soon turned into heartbreak after the doctors told her that she had lost her unborn child. The ex-Olympian revealed how she was ecstatic to know that she could still bear an angel after battering her body to exhaustion with strenuous training sessions she’d done as an athlete.
Her heart broke into pieces when she was given the news of her miscarriage. Shawn once again started to question whether she was worthy of raising a child when she couldn’t even nurture it for during the nine months inside her belly. Shawn also felt so guilty for stripping Andrew of the joy of becoming a dad. She said that it was tough to recover from her emotional pain, but thankfully God has blessed them with another chance to start over again.
