AceShowbiz - Retired U.S. Olympian Shawn Johnson East has become a mother to a baby boy.
The news was announced on the social media channels of children's apparel and toy brand Teddy & Bear, the company owned by the former gymnast and her husband, American footballer Andrew East.
"We're so excited to announce a new friend is here!" read the first Instagram Story post, shared on Tuesday (20Jul21).
A second added, "Mom and baby are doing well and we can't wait to meet our new friend!"
In a separate statement issued to People.com, the new parents wrote, "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."
Shawn and Andrew also share 20-month-old daughter Drew Hazel, who was born two years after the couple suffered a miscarriage.
The athletes wed in 2016.
During Shawn's pregnancy, the couple went viral as they made several clips of her showing husband Andrew what it's like being pregnant. He had a huge ball attached to his stomach and did a series of challenges like getting dressed, getting out of bed, and exercising.
Andrew also posted a video of a heavily-pregnant Shawn playing golf. "8 months pregnant, still better than me at golf," he wrote in the caption.
