The retired Olympic gold gymnast Shawn Johnson East, 31, has welcomed her third baby with her husband Andrew East.
Shawn Johnson and Andrew East have decided to take a few days to spend time with their newborn child as a family before sharing the name and sex of the baby.
The couple confirmed the news of their newborn via their FamilyMade newsletter on Thursday morning.
“Our baby is healthy and that’s all we can ask for!” Shawn Johnson said in candid quotes she offered in the announcement.
“Recovery is always a process and I’ve learned to be really patient with my body. Not trying to rush anything and really just going to soak it all in. The third time around feels so surreal because even though we’ve done this twice before, there’s still so much nervousness and excitement around the days leading up to the birth and then so much magic once you get to hold your sweet baby in your arms for the first time,” she shared.
“It really never gets old. You spend your whole pregnancy wondering how you could possibly love another baby just as much as your first two and then in an instant your heart expands and basically triples in size, it’s incredible. Being a mom is truly my favorite thing.”
