Shawn Johnson has a new something sparkly to put alongside her gold medal -- a gorgeous engagement ring! On July 24, Johnson's boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player Andrew East, proposed during a Chicago Cubs baseball game, reports People. After the 2008 Olympic gymnast threw the first pitch, East surprised her, dropping to one knee in the center of Wrigley Field. Johnson posted a video of the sweet proposal on Instagram.


Judging by Johnson and East's many Instagram posts, it seems the couple is enjoying engaged life. Johnson even gave The Knot a shout-out on her Instagram page, showing off her new sparkler and our Fall 2015 issue with the caption "Just because I can." Love! Congratulations to the sporty couple.
