But while Johnson’s time as a professional gymnast unfortunately came to an abrupt end, her love life thankfully didn’t suffer the same fate. After starting a relationship with the Kansas City Chiefs’ Andrew East, Johnson faced a romantic proposal at a Cubs game in 2015 – and she said yes.

Then, a little under a year after first getting engaged, the two lovebirds got married in April of 2016. Soon after, she told People magazine of the occasion, “I’ve found my guy.” She added, “And he’s my best friend, so making it official is exciting.”
