Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson Reveals She Suffered a Miscarriage”

The almost 21-minute video starts off with Johnson crying tears of joy and revealing that she is pregnant. When they arrive, the doctor performs an ultrasound which reveals Shawn had miscarried naturally at just six weeks.

In the beginning of the vlog, Johnson shows her fans multiple positive pregnancy tests, sharing her excitement about telling her husband the big news.

The Iowa native and her athlete husband, who tied the knot previous year in Tennessee, uploaded a YouTube clip titled 'pregnancy + heartbreak, ' in which they explained the tragic turn, and the optimistic way they're looking at things moving forward.

"The past 48 hours have been some of the happiest, scariest, and saddest times of my life".

But it started out joyful as Johnson found out through taking a pregnancy test in NY that she was pregnant. "I've cried enough today".

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.

"I definitely wasn't planning this but it's really, really exciting", sobbed the former athlete, who retired from gymnastics in 2012 and won season 8 of Dancing with the Stars while weathering a scary stalker incident.

"We'll start a family here soon", Johnson says. "@andreweast I love you more than anything in the world and I know you are going to make the greatest daddy in the world someday", the gold medalist wrote on her page. The couple visits a doctor, who confirms the heartbreaking news that Johnson is having a miscarriage.

Shawn Johnson and husband Andrew East have had a roller coaster of a week.

'We just got back from the doctor. and I'm no longer pregnant, ' Shawn said. "My mom had a really hard time getting pregnant, so I didn't think it would be easy for me to", Johnson revealed. Johnson then holds them up and declares, tearfully, "We're going to have a baby".
