Shawn Johnson Reveals She Suffered a Miscarriage in Heartbreaking Video

Shawn Johnson East Reveals She Suffered a Miscarriage in Emotional Video with Her Husband

"Shawn is very fearless to share all this stuff", East says at one point in the video, as the couple drives to a checkup.

As the video continues, the couple shares that several days later Johnson East went to the hospital after experiencing bleeding, where she found out she suffered a miscarriage.

As the Olympian elaborated on her Instagram page, "This is by far the hardest video we've ever posted, but we felt as though it was a story that needed to be shared as so many struggle with the same thing".

Johnson was seen in the doctor's office, getting the bad news that she had miscarried, later sitting down with East to share the cavalcade of emotions they were going through amid the hard period.

That being said, she explained that she and her husband Andrew East found out they were expecting without even planning it and it was a pleasant surprise.

Added East, "Yeah, we were scared and we were like, 'Wow, I don't think we're ready for it.' Then we talked about it and started getting excited about it".

Later, the couple is shown driving to see a doctor after Johnson starts suffering from stomach pains, and the doctor eventually revealing that she had miscarried naturally.

In the later part of the video though, the couple learn the heartbreaking news. "You go from shock, ... He's going to be a daddy".

East is seemingly just as supportive, telling his bride throughout their YouTube video what a champ she really is. "How strong you are", he tells her.

Later on, they also had a Facebook Live chat with people and answered questions about the experience. Somehow, I lost the pregnancy already.

Still, they're staying positive, saying that they'd be open to adoption if pregnancy wasn't in the cards. "We didn't try for this one and it's insane that this even happened". All we can do is be positive, otherwise we just sink into a hole, ' Johnson said.

Do you relate to Shawn and and Andrew's heartbreak?
