Shawn Johnson is one lucky gal! After the Olympic gold medalist, 23, said “yes” to marrying boyfriend, football player Andrew East, in July, the beautiful bride-to-be got to pop a question of her own. She asked her adorable niece to take a starring role as flower girl in the couple’s upcoming wedding.
In a darling Instagram post, Johnson snapped a sweet photo of the baby wearing a top with the words, “Will you be our?” and headband and leggings which said, “Flower girl!” On October 31, an excited Johnson declared to the world that “she said yes!!!” The little flower girl appeared to be just as excited by the news in her Instagram photo.
In July, East, also 23, surprised his unsuspecting girlfriend with a wedding proposal to remember at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Johnson had just thrown the ceremonial first pitch with fellow USA gymnast Alicia Quinn, according to US Weekly, when East got down on one knee and proposed. Of course, Johnson said “yes!”
With anticipating building for the couple’s 2016 wedding, we can’t wait for these “yeses” to turn into “I do’s!” Congratulations to the bride, groom, and flower girl-to-be!
