Shawn Johnson didn’t have to search too far for inspiration when naming her daughter.
“Drew Hazel East. 8lbs 8oz. 20.5 inches long. 10/29/19,” the Olympic gold medalist shared on Instagram. “Named after the most incredible person I know… her daddy.”
Johnson, 27, has been married to Andrew East, 28, since 2016.
The gymnast and the football long snapper welcomed their baby girl earlier this week after previously suffering a miscarriage.
“I’m absolutely terrified,” Johnson said when announcing her pregnancy. “It’s natural for anybody who’s experienced pain or loss to guard their hearts when things happen again. I can naturally feel that my heart is guarding itself because I don’t want to go through that again.”
Johnson is reveling in being a first-time mom and has even started to document Drew’s life on her own Instagram account, @drewhazeleast. She previously documented her pregnancy on the account, then known as @eastbaby.
