Shawn Johnson & Andrew East Are ‘Thrilled’ to Be Expecting Another Baby

In an interview with Family Made, Johnson shared the exciting news.

“We are thrilled to say that we are expecting another baby! After months of trying, thinking we were pregnant and then being bummed we weren’t, and a couple times getting pregnant and experiencing loss early on, we’re confident this one is here to stay,” Johnson said. Indeed, Johnson has suffered pregnancy loss in the past and has been open about her journey.

“We wanted to wait a while to officially announce the news. Here’s to all the nausea, cravings, back pain, and other fun things we go through that are totally worth it to ultimately hold a little baby in our arms. Here we go again!” she added.

Johnson and East have decided not to find out if they are having a boy or a girl.

“We waited to find out the gender with our daughter until she was born and then we got to experience a big gender reveal for our son. For the third baby, we’ve decided we want to be surprised again, there’s no greater feeling! It’s such a fun experience to have the birth and gender reveal bundled into one moment,” she told the outlet.

Johnson shared that she and East aren’t planning on having more than three children together  — but, on her podcast, she said that if they change their mind, they will have a surrogate or adopt.
