Shawn Johnson Welcomes Her First Child, a Baby Girl


Former Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson has given birth to her first child, a baby girl, with husband Andrew East. The couple has documented their struggles with fertility and pregnancy on social media for years now, beginning with her emotional account of her miscarriage on their YouTube channel two years ago. 

More recently, Shawn opened up about complications in her pregnancy. In July, she and Andrew went for their 20-week ultrasound and were told that her baby's "kidneys were really underdeveloped but dilated, so they were retaining a bunch of fluid." Other complications made it clear that this wouldn't be an easy road. But, on Nov. 4, Shawn and Andrew posted pictures of them beaming, holding their beautiful baby girl.
