Shawn Johnson East, who is expecting her second child with her husband, Andrew East, has tested positive for the coronavirus.
She shared the news on her Instagram story on Sunday.
“Got my results back today and they came back positive for Covid.
“Not going to lie… I’m nervous knowing I’m positive. It’s been a long two weeks of RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) with Drew and now this… my body is exhausted.”
The mom to 15-month-old daughter Drew Hazel also explained why she was worried about her positive diagnosis.
“1: I don’t want to get my family sick. 2: I have asthma and have had it my entire life so this scares me a little extra. 3: had a very close family member fight for his life last month while battling Covid so it’s a serious topic of concern/hits home in our household.”
“So far, I have a cough, terrible sore throat and headache. Fatigue for sure but… that’s pregnancy haha,” she said. “Not looking for any kind of pitty (sic) party. Just a reminder to take care of yourself. Drink an extra water tonight and wash your hands.”
She then ended her coronavirus announcement with a separate post on Instagram Story, as she wrote, “Praying so hard for all those babies out there tonight (sappy mama here) and everyone fighting for their health. Ok… this emotional mess of a human is going to try to sleep now. Love you all.”
Shawn’s husband, Andrew East, previously tested positive for the coronavirus, the couple revealed in their pregnancy announcement video earlier this month.
“We were in this time of celebration and we wanted to tell her parents and her friends (about the baby), then I ended up having to friggin’ self-isolate for 10 days.” - Andrew East
