Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson is Engaged!

So an Olympic gymnast gets engaged to an NFL player at a baseball game. . . the beginning of a sports joke, or an ADORABLE proposal? If you guessed proposal, you’re right!

Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson got engaged this weekend to Kansas City Chiefs player Andrew East. Johnson  threw out the first pitch at Friday’s Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field. As she walked back to the dugout, East met her on the field, and got down on one knee!

East took to Instagram on Saturday, captioning his photo “I’m a lucky guy to put a ring on this girls finger. I love you @shawnjohnson

The couple may not have set the date yet, but Johnson is already prepared. She’s started reading wedding magazines and has updated her social media bios to include “To be Mrs. East!” (trumping he “Olympic Gold Medalist” status). Congratulations Mrs. Shawn East to-be!
