According to PEOPLE, “At a 20-week checkup, their doctor informed Johnson East that her baby had underdeveloped and dilated kidneys, as well as a two-rather than a three-vessel umbilical cord, which carries an increased risk of stillbirth and pre-term labor. With both complications happening together, their doctor said there was a risk of their baby having Down Syndrome.”

Luckily, after receiving genetic testing, everything was all good! However, the experience gave the new parents some perspective. She said, “Everyone’s always like, ‘Oh, are you having a boy or a girl? What do you want? Are you going to put them in gymnastics? Are you going to put them in football?’ And we had those thoughts in the beginning.”

Congrats to Shawn and Andrew! She is so beautiful. We can’t wait to learn what her name is and see her grow! Check out a video of their nursery below:
