You might bump into Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson at Chiefs training camp this summer, or at one of their games this fall.
(CBS) There was quite the surprise waiting for Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Shawn Johnson after she threw out the first pitch before Friday’s Cubs-Phillies game at Wrigley Field.
East dropped to one knee near home plate and presented the 2008 gold medalist with a diamond engagement ring.
Later, she put her feelings onto her Twitter feed.
“Today the love of my life asked me to be his forever…”
The next year, Johnson was crowned a “Dancing with the Stars” champion alongside Mark Ballas.
