Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson East has been a real joy to follow on social media over the course of her current pregnancy.
She posts tons of photos, updates her followers with personal updates and brings a dose of real life to the platform, which often shows off people’s perfectly curated sides.
Johnson East and her husband, Andrew East, who’s had multiple stints with various NFL teams as a long-snapper, were also candid and open about an early miscarriage that they suffered with their first pregnancy in 2017.
2 years ago today our world was turned upside down when we lost our first pregnancy… 2 years later we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our rainbow baby. Baby East, we can’t wait to meet you and pray for your safe delivery and arrival into our arms. @andrewdeast thank you for being my rock through it all. You’re going to be the greatest daddy ever. #throwback #pregnancy
