Play • 47 min

Gymnastics champion, Shawn Johnson is the consummate winner. By the age of 16 she won 4 Olympic Medals (1 Gold, 3 Silver) in Beijing. She's a bestselling author and winner of ABC's Dancing with the Stars in 2009. As if that wasn't enough she's an entrepreneur who started Teddy & Bear, a line of socks for kids. Shawn also hosts the podcast Couple Things with her husband, NFL-Pro Andrew East. Their daughter Drew Hazel was born in October of 2009.

Shawn covers a lot with Hilaria and Daphne. In the episode, Shawn credits her parents and her coach for giving her freedom and allowing her to have a childhood, while competing as a pro gymnast. You will hear about why discussing her miscarriage publicly helped her heal. She discusses what it was like when her husband had COVID and why she almost quit Dancing with the Stars.
