Shawn Johnson gets Engaged at Wrigley Field

shawn-johnson-engagementShawn Johnson received a huge surprise after throwing out the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game on Friday. Her now fiancé NFL player Andrew East surprised her by getting down on one knee on Wrigley field and popping the question. Andrew is a long snapper for the Kansas City Chiefs. The 23-year-old Olympic gymnast shared the video of the proposal moment on Instagram:

“Well I know it’s not a secret…. But I experienced the greatest surprise a girl could ever ask for today…. The love of my life @andrewdeast asked me to be his forever AND I SAID YES!!!!!!#isaidyes #weregettingmarried #holycow.”

The Chicago Cubs showed some love by posting the same video, writing, “Congratulations to @ShawnJohnson and @AndrewDEast on their engagement before today’s #Cubs game!”

Johnson was part of the United States’ women’s gymnastics team at the 2008 Olympic games in Beijing, winning the gold medal for balance beam and silver medals for floor exercise, individual all-around, and team all-around competitions. Following the Olympics, she competed and won season 8 of Dancing with the Stars in 2009 and placed second when she returned for the show’s all-star season in 2012. No word on a wedding date yet. Congratulations to the happy couple!
