Shawn Johnson East Shares Adorable First Photos of Baby Boy With Big Sis, Drew

Shawn Johnson East

Shawn Johnson East is officially a mom to two under two!

The Olympic gold medalist gave birth to her second child with husband, Andrew East, last week—a boy, and brother to big sister Drew.

After the arrival of their son—whose name they are keeping private for now—the couple told E! News, “We are absolutely in love with our little man. Drew is so sweet with him—you can tell she’s already such a great big sister.”

On Tuesday, Shawn took to Instagram with a series of black and white photos starring the newest member of #TheEastFam.

“Welcome to the world little man! We love you so much!,” the 29-year-old wrote.

One of the photos features 20-month-old Drew smiling at the camera as she holds her new baby brother.

Andrew took to his own instagram with a brief clip from the birth writing, “I have never known a love like this @shawnjohnson.

The couple also offered fans an intimate look at their baby boy’s debut, sharing never-before-seen footage on YouTube, chronicling the days leading up to his arrival, their birth story, and the overwhelming joy of welcoming their son into the world.

The video sees Andrew excitedly loosing sleep as the day of Shawn’s C-section quickly approaches, their dog Nash leaving nervous surprises all over their house because he doesn’t handle life changes well, and the growing family soaking up their final days and hours as a family of three.

When June 19th arrives, Shawn and Andrew make their way to the hospital.

“It’s game time,” Andrew told the camera, dressed in medical gear. “Shawn just walked back to the OR. I feel terrible, like so nervous…I can’t imagine how she’s feeling. She’ll be meeting the baby boy here in 30 minutes.”

Later in the video, a tearful Andrew films himself overcome with joy as they weigh the 9 lb., 13 oz baby. Shawn shakes her head in disbelief.

“You made it, bud,” Andrew sweetly says to his son, as he rubs his head. “It’s dad. It’s dad…I love you.”

Similar to her first pregnancy with Drew, Shawn has heavily documented this second pregnancy on social media. The couple first announced they were pregnant back in January, and shared a surprise gender reveal party in March.

Whether it be testing positive for COVID-19 early on in her pregnancy, or the anxiety she carries on a daily basis, the retired Olympian has been candid about the highs and lows of pregnancy, nesting, and preparing their home and hearts for another little bundle.

“Feel like this happened right before Drew, too…” Shawn expressed on Instagram Stories on July 2. “Have officially hit the wall where I don’t want to work, I’m stressed about everything, overthinking everything, irritable, and exhausted. All I have room to think about is our little family and little man on the way.”
