The gymnast also spoke about the complications of pregnancy.

Shawn Johnson is almost ready to add another title to her resume. Olympic gymnast, Dancing With The Stars champ and soon…mom! The 27-year-old spoke candidly about being mom-shamed and the complications of her current pregnancy.
The Iowa native admitted that she’s “used to the critics and the haters.” She added that everyone is entitled to their opinion and she “understands” where they’re coming from.
“Pregnancy is the most humbling thing I’ve ever done and I’m a control freak…it’s a moment in your life where you have no control. It’s a foreign and unknown experience.  That’s why my husband [Andrew East] and I share so much,” Shawn said of the obstacles of being pregnant.
Shawn Johnson is promoting Philips Avent Brand.
