CHICAGO — A celebrity first pitch can be memorable for all the wrong reasons (right, 50 Cent?) But Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson’s pitch at Wrigley Field today is nearly a fairy tale.
As the gold medalist, joined by fellow gymnast Alicia Sacramone, was finishing her time on the diamond, her boyfriend Andrew East appeared and got down on one knee.
Shawn said yes and the Cubs congratulated the couple on their social media accounts.
According to Andrew’s twitter account, the two have been together for two years. He recently signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Shawn began her day by visiting the WGN Morning News. You can see her interview here.
