Shawn Johnson East Shares First Photos of Baby No. 3 and Hints at Baby Name

Gymnast Shawn Johnson East offered a glimpse of her third baby with husband Andrew East—and hinted at a possible cute name they’ve chosen. You’ll be fascinated by this clue.

Shawn Johnson East hinted at the name of her third child, whom she welcomed with husband Andrew East on December 12.

The gymnast shared adorable photos of their new baby, captioning her December 15 Instagram post with quotes around the bear emoji, suggesting that the baby’s name could possibly be Bear or Teddy as a short nickname. She hasn’t confirmed the name yet.

The photos depict the snugly bundled little one, cuddling with Shawn and joining their three-year-old sister Drew and two-year-old brother Jett at their home in Nashville.

Although the couple hasn’t disclosed their baby’s gender, Shawn’s friend Mallory Ervin hinted that they welcomed a baby boy, commenting on the post, “My baby, I love him so much.”

Lindsey Vonn, Peta Murgatroyd, and Jenna Johnson were among the stars who also sent congratulatory messages to Shawn and Andrew beneath the photos, taken by Gabrielle Renee Hopkins.

On December 14, the Olympic gold medalist revealed she gave birth via C-section, writing in their FamilyMade newsletter, “Our baby is healthy, and that’s all we can ask for!”

“Recovery always takes time, and I’ve learned to be really patient with my body,” she said. “Not rushing anything and truly just soaking it all in.”

At 31, she added, “This time around feels so surreal because even though we’ve done this twice before, there’s still so much anticipation and joy leading up to the birth and then so much magic when you get to hold your sweet baby for the first time.”

It’s further proof she deserves a perfect 10 for her love story with the former football player, whom she married in 2016.
