Pregnant Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Olympic gold medal gymnast Shawn Johnson, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Andrew East, revealed Sunday that she has tested positive for COVID-19.

The gold medal winner in the 2008 Olympic games revealed her coronavirus test results in a lengthy note posted on her Instagram Stories.

“They came back positive for COVID,” Johnson, 29, wrote. “Not going to lie… I’m nervous knowing I’m positive.”

The “Dancing With the Stars” standout revealed earlier this month that she is pregnant with the couple’s second child. Johnson said Sunday that “my body is just exhausted” after already spending the last two weeks caring for the couple’s 15-month-old daughter Drew Hazel, who had contracted RSV (respiratory syncytial virus).

“I don’t want to get my family sick,” wrote Johnson, who added that she has had a pre-existing condition of asthma her entire life. “So this scares me a little extra.”
