"My husband Andrew and I found out that we were unexpectedly pregnant, only to find out hours later some tragic news", the Olympic gold medalist captioned the YouTube 20 minute video.

As the Olympian elaborated on her Instagram page, "This is by far the hardest video we've ever posted, but we felt as though it was a story that needed to be shared as so many struggle with the same thing".

Shawn Johnson and her husband Andrew East are opening up about their recent miscarriage just hours after finding out she was pregnant.

Later in the clip, Johnson, flanked by her husband, said they'd been through "a roller coaster of a few days" amid learning about the sad development.

"We feel like a lot of people go through this so we wanted to share it", Johnson revealed in the YouTube video while sitting with East. 'I definitely wasn't planning this but it's really, really exciting. how am I gonna tell Andrew?

Both Johnson and East were then shown driving to the doctor's as a result of her stomach pains. The doctor went on to reveal that she had miscarried naturally.

The couple, who got engaged on back in 2015 at Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field, is leaning on one another in the wake of their tragedy. "Thank you for being my rock through all of this". "I have no idea who you are, what you are, or what you'll be like, but I'm pumped to meet you".

The couple later sat down for a Facebook Live chat with their fans, where they answered questions about their experience. I somehow lost the pregnancy already.

Still, they're staying positive, saying that they'd be open to adoption if pregnancy wasn't in the cards. We didn't even know if we were ready for it. "We believe God's got a bigger plan for us. All we can do is be positive otherwise we just sink into a hole".
