Olympic gold medal gymnast, Shawn Johnson East, who last joined Kaitlyn (and Jason) on Off the Vine with her husband on a “double date” after baby #1, joins her again after baby #2! Shawn shares about the chaos of having two littles, what motherhood has taught her, how lucky she got with an “easy” second baby but how no one talks about how hard kids are on your relationship no matter how easy or good kids are. She and her husband have stayed true to their weekly date night ever since they became parents but it’s not all fun wining and dining as it’s often the only time they have together to “air out their dirty laundry” so they often leave dinner as exhausted parents in worse moods than when they arrived lol. Shawn reflects on her time as the world’s best gymnast (retired by 19), the pressures to perform the best and look a certain way and how all had a major negative effect on her mental health, for which there were zero resources provided and how she is struggling with the decision of whether she will put her kids in the sport or not. She discusses how proud she is of Simone Biles for speaking out and putting her mental health first after years of suffering without acknowledgment and after years of gymnasts being treated more like robots than humans. Things end on a lighter note with Kaitlyn and Shawn reflecting on their time on Dancing with the Stars!
