Mixed feelings! Shawn Johnson East isn’t ready for a second child just yet, but her husband, Andrew East, is ready to add another baby to their brood.
“If it were up to my husband, yes, we would already be pregnant,” the Olympian, 28, told Us Weekly exclusively on Wednesday, May 6, while promoting Enfamil’s formula. “He’s ready for No. 2 already. I just want some time to drink wine and eat sushi, enjoy our daughter, [Drew], and then it’d be time.”
The Winning Balance author went on to say that “maybe” they can talk about giving their 6-month-old daughter a sibling after quarantine ends.
For now, the couple are loving life with their little one. Drew has “become a human being,” the gymnast said, explaining to Us, “She has a personality and there’s just more interest from her.”
As for her milestones, Drew is starting to eat some solid foods, including sweet potatoes and avocado, and is holding her own bottle. “She’s getting ready to crawl, so she can’t crawl yet,” Shawn went on to tell Us. “But she can somehow move herself from point a to point B, and I don’t understand it.”
The Iowa native added, “She’s very stingy when it comes to her laughs, but we have gotten some … belly laughs out of her, which is the best sound in the entire world.”
For Shawn’s first Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 10, she thinks “it’s a really special time to just be able to hang out” with Drew. “It’ll be great,” she gushed.
As for Father’s Day next month, the Dancing With the Stars season 8 winner told Us, “I haven’t started planning yet, but I love grand gestures so I’ll think of something fun.”
Shawn loves her daughter’s relationship with her dad, also 28. “Seeing my husband and her interact and her just look[ing] at him [while] he feeds her is the most beautiful bond,” she gushed to Us. “It makes you fall in love with your husband all over again in a different way that you never have.”
