Shawn Johnson and Andrew East are parents - again!
The Olympic gold medalist and free agent NFL long snapper announced the arrival of their son on their Instagram account for their children’s apparel and toy brand, Teddy & Bear.
“We’re so excited to announce a new friend is here!” the couple, both 29, wrote on Instagram Stories. “Mom and baby are doing well, and we can’t wait to meet our new friend.”
East was diagnosed with COVID-19 in January, just days after the couple, who wed in April 2016, learned they were expecting for a second time. Johnson then contracted the virus in February, according to “Good Morning America.”
Their son joins big sister, Drew, who will turn 2 in November, the outlet reported.
“We are so happy to welcome our little man into the world. We are loving life as a family of four and soaking up every minute,” Johnson and East told People in a prepared statement.
The couple previously revealed to People that the gymnast had suffered a miscarriage in October 2017, roughly two years before their daughter was born.
