Shawn Johnson and husband Andrew East have had a roller coaster of a week. After finding out that they were expecting their first child together just days ago, the couple has taken to social media to share the heartbreaking news that they鈥檝e suffered a miscarriage.

In a 20-minute long video聽posted to YouTube, the pair bravely shared their story, saying, 鈥淚t鈥檚 not the happiest video, but we feel like a lot of people go through this so we wanted to share it.鈥

As the Olympian elaborated on her Instagram page, 鈥淭his is by far the hardest video we鈥檝e ever posted, but we felt as though it was a story that needed to be shared as so many struggle with the same thing.鈥

Their聽clip begins with a flashback to the moment a tear-filled Johnson found out she was pregnant just four days prior, before sharing to the news with her husband of one year聽by gifting him with聽a pair of teeny tiny baby Converse 鈥 his favorite shoes.

From there, we see the concerned athlete, 25, phoning in her symptoms of pain to the doctor, as her doting husband, 26, strokes her hair and reassures her that 鈥淲e don鈥檛 know what this is.鈥

鈥淚 started having really bad stomach pains and a lot of bleeding which is not good for a pregnancy,鈥 she laments in a聽shot of their ride to the doctor鈥檚 office.

While both the would-be mother and father admitted the pregnancy was unplanned and that they weren鈥檛 quite ready, the news that they wouldn鈥檛 be having a little one after all was understandably heartbreaking. 鈥淵ou go from shock, 鈥 (鈥渢o elation! East chimes in) to 鈥榟oly crap,鈥 to 鈥業 can鈥檛 do this,鈥 to, 鈥楲et鈥檚 do this!鈥 and now it鈥檚 like, I pray to God I CAN do this,鈥 the star explains.

Unfortunately, it wasn鈥檛 the pair鈥檚 time, with the doctor explaining that Johnson鈥檚 body had miscarried naturally after six to eight weeks, most likely because 鈥渃hromosomally, it wasn鈥檛 normal.鈥

The duo, who got engaged back in 2015 at Chicago Cubs鈥 Wrigley Field, is leaning on one another in the wake of their tragedy. 鈥淍andreweast I love you more than anything in the world and I know you are going to make the greatest daddy in the world someday,鈥 the gold medalist wrote on her page. 鈥淭hank you for being my rock through all of this.鈥

East is seemingly just as supportive, telling his bride throughout their YouTube video what a champ she really is. 鈥淚 can鈥檛 emphasize how proud I am of you. How strong you are,鈥 he tells her.

Following an overwhelming response to their video, which currently has more than 95,000 views, the twosome also took to Facebook live for a Q and A, answering tough questions such as whether or not they would try again (鈥淎bsolutely鈥) and if they would be scared going into a second pregnancy (鈥淎bsolutely鈥). 鈥淢y mom had a really hard time getting pregnant, so I didn鈥檛 think it would be easy for me to,鈥 Johnson revealed.

Still, they鈥檙e staying positive, saying that they鈥檇 be open to adoption if pregnancy wasn鈥檛 in the cards. 鈥淲e know everything happens for a reason,鈥 the balance beam champ told fans. 鈥淲e believe God鈥檚 got a bigger plan for us. All we can do is be positive, otherwise we just sink into a hole.鈥
