Shawn Johnson and her husband Andrew East are pregnant! The happy couple is officially expecting their first child after suffering a miscarriage over a year and a half ago. They made the exciting announcement on Instagram on Thursday, April 4.
“@theeastbaby … we cannot WAIT to welcome you to the world and shower you with love. @andrewdeast WE DID IT!” the former Dancing With the Stars winner shared on Instagram, alongside an adorable photo of herself and her husband pointing to her belly, showing how excited these two are about their news.
They’ve also created an Instagram account for their future baby and have already shared a post on the page.
“We are so incredibly excited to meet our baby when they come — he, she, we don’t know yet. We can’t wait to share our journey with you guys. We have absolutely no clue what we’re doing so I’m sure we’re going to have a million questions for the world over the course of the next few months.
“Keep checking back for updates, guys. We have a lot to share,” the 27-year-old mama-to-be said from her baby’s account.
As previously mentioned, the couple went through a difficult miscarriage in October 2017 and shared their struggles in a video.
“I had these guilty feelings of if, ‘I can’t even take care of [a] child for a week in my stomach, I can’t raise a child on my own.’ I felt guilty to Andrew that I had lost his child, and I felt guilty to God that I lost his child,” Johnson shared in an interview with People shortly after sharing the video.
“No matter what you go through, you will always come out of it. And I think if you believe in Him and have faith in Him, you’ll come out stronger than you were before.”
