Shawn Johnson is pregnant with her rainbow baby.

The 27-year-old Olympic gymnast and her football player husband Andrew East, also 27, revealed on Thursday that they are expecting a child, a year and a half after she suffered a miscarriage.

Johnson posted on her Instagram page a photo of the two smiling and gesturing towards her baby bump. East posted on page a video of her cradling her baby bump and him holding up a pair of baby shoes. And the two have already opened an Instagram account for their unborn child, who is unnamed. They have also not revealed the baby's sex.

"@theeastbaby ... we cannot WAIT to welcome you to the world and shower you with love. @andrewdeast WE DID IT!" Johnson wrote.

The two also shared a YouTube video, recorded on February 17, showing them talking about their pregnancy journey, with East holding up a positive home pregnancy test.

"Someone asked me the other day, is it hard trying after we had a miscarriage?" Johnson said. "I've never really voiced any hesitation with trying again, but yeah, I'm absolutely terrified."

"I don't wanna say that that experience stole a little bit of joy and excitement," East said. "I think it more maybe prepared us."

 

He told her, "You're gonna be an awesome mom."

"You're gonna be a dad," Johnson told him. "You're gonna be the best dad in the world."
