Shawn Johnson welcomes baby # 2 with Andrew East
Shawn Johnson‘s joy at the arrival of the birth of her and her husband Andrew East‘s baby was interrupted after her older daughter fell ill and needed isolation.
On Wednesday, July 28, the day after greeting her son, the retired Olympic gymnast shared the 21-month-old on Instagram Drew Hazel East had contracted a “bad ear infection” and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which she also fought earlier this year. The respiratory virus is common in children, typically showing mild cold-like symptoms, but is highly contagious and can be fatal to young infants.
“I had some of the toughest, most emotional days of my life trying to take care of my two babies but isolating myself from Drew,” wrote 29-year-old Shawn on her Instagram story on Thursday July 29th with a photo of the little girl who was her little brother a few days ago. “I would just hear her scream for ‘Mama’ and it would crush my soul. She’s being pampered like crazy by Gamma and Gampa, is now taking the right medication so it gets better, and I actually got some sleep last night. Thank you You for your prayers. “
