Gymnast Shawn Johnson East posted to social media this past weekend sharing a very personal story; she revealed that she had a miscarriage, just a few days after announcing her pregnancy with husband, Andrew East.
The video starts out with her saying, “today’s video is a little bit sensitive. It’s not the happiest video but we feel like a lot of people go through it so we wanted to share it.”
The twenty minute video follows her discovering she is pregnant, telling her husband, experiencing some health issues, and then going to the doctor’s office to find out more.
While this is obviously heartbreaking news, Shawn ended the video saying, “It won’t stop us. We’ll start a family here soon.”
And fans are loving that she was brave enough to share her story!
