Babies, babies, and more babies! It seems as though the baby train has arrived and people far and wide are announcing the exciting news of their little additions to the family.
One particular couple recently made the announcement that they are expecting their first child together, but the exciting news rocked them a bit more than most.
Olympic superstar, Shawn Johnson East, and her husband, Andrew, recently spilled the beans that they are going to be expecting their first child and the couple could not be more thrilled. Shawn has made it known on their YouTube channel that she’s always wanted to be a mother, so now that the moment has arrived, it’s more surreal and thrilling than she ever imagined.
Shawn and Andrew had announced in 2017 that they were expecting a child. While they were incredibly excited, the news was rather unexpected and they were ready to take on all that parenthood had to offer.
Sadly, not long after they found out about the pregnancy, Shawn began to experience some severe symptoms and shortly after endured a heartbreaking miscarriage.
To continue with their transparency, they opted to share their difficult journey with all of their followers in hopes of inspiring and encouraging others that were dealing with similar circumstances.
While they were unsure as to whether or not they’d ever get the opportunity to finally become parents, their lifelong dream finally came true and they couldn’t be more excited! Shawn posted an adorable image of her and Andrew, captioning it: “@theeasybaby...we cannot WAIT to welcome you to the world and shower you with love. @andreweast WE DID IT!”
Andrew also posted to his Instagram account with another adorable video of the giddy parents-to-be: “Coming 2019 @theeastbaby @shawnjohnsoneast!”
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you a healthy pregnancy and cannot wait to see baby East!
