Johnson East’s pregnancy announcement photos appear to have been taken alongside a reel Johnson East previously shared on her Instagram, where she cut clips from her gold medal ceremony in 2008 and excerpts from his 2023 visit to the Panathenaic Stadium. in Athens, Greece, with her two children.
Although the 2008 Johnson East Summer Olympics were not held in Greece, the Panathenaic Stadium was built in ancient times and was where the Olympics were held in the late 1800s and again in 2004.
At the time, Johnson East kindly reflected on the moment, writing, “Returning to the Olympic Stadium grateful, but also so proud of where I am today.”
In May, Johnson East chatted with PEOPLE about his special appearance on the children’s TV show Blippi and asked whether or not her children would pursue gymnastics.
Speaking to PEOPLE, the mother-of-two said she scored some big points with her son Jett James and daughter Drew Hazel after bringing them to the shoot.
“They worship the ground that Blippi walks on,” Johnson East told PEOPLE. “And when they got to come on set and meet Blippi and Meekah, our daughter still couldn’t stop talking about it. She thinks Blippi is her best friend and honestly there are the nicest humans out there. .”
She also revealed that her daughter Drew dipped her toes in gymnastics, just like her mother. Calling the gym a “giant padded play area for a kid,” Johnson East said Drew “likes it better than ballet or football so far, but I think that’s because there are more activities she can do there at this point.”
The mother went on to say that she has not invested in any of her children to follow in her footsteps. “I’m as far from wanting her to be a gymnast as humanly possible,” she revealed. “I just want her to fall in love with something and I’ll be her biggest cheerleader, whatever it is.”
