Shawn Johnson, the 23-year-old Olympic gold medalist is engaged, after her Kansas City Chiefs boyfriend Andrew East, 23, proposed at Chicago’s Wrigley Field on Friday.
The couple shared the special moment with sweet photos and a video. See them here!
The gymnast tweeted, “Today the love of my life asked me to be his forever… AND I SAID YES!! #isaidyes #weregettingmarried #wrigleyfield”.
Shawn and Andrew kicked off the Cubs Vs. Phillies game with the first official pitch.
Just as Shawn was leaving the mound is when her boyfriend dropped down to one knee to pop the question.
Andrew tweeted a photo, captioning the snap, “I’m a lucky guy to put a ring on this girls finger! I love you @ShawnJohnson”.
Even the Chicago Cubs took to social media to congratulate the couple, writing, “‘Congrats to @ShawnJohnson and @AndrewDEast on their engagement!. She says yes! @AndrewDEast proposes to @ShawnJohnson at Wrigley Field”.
The four-time Olympic medalist retired from competition due to recurring knee problems in June 2012.
The gymnast said in a statement that year, “Unfortunately, it has become obvious that my left knee is not able to sustain the demands of gymnastics any longer. All I can do now is gracefully retire and thank everyone who has believed in me and my journey.”
