The Olympic gymnast shares her three kids with husband Andrew East
Shawn Johnson East added a permanent tribute to her three kids over the weekend.
On Monday, the Olympic gymnast, 32, shared a series of videos to her Instagram Story as she showed off the recent tattoos she got in honor of her kids. Alongside a honey bee and an "A" for husband Andrew East, Johnson East also inked on each of her kids' names.
On one of her outer arms, Johnson East got "Drew Hazel" tattooed in script in honor of her 4-year-old daughter. On her other outer arm, she had "Jett James" drawn in a typewriter font for her 2-year-old son. Finally, she got "Bear Madison" printed across the back of her arm in honor of her most recent addition, son Bear.

"Going into the birth, we didn't know if we were having a girl or a boy so we had a name for each that we loved!" Johnson East noted.
"We're so happy we got to use the name Barrett Madison for our son and love calling him 'Bear.' We knew if we had a boy we wanted to pay tribute to Andrew's dad who passed away last year and his name was Guy Madison East. Andrew's Grandpa's name was also Madison and it was later passed down to his dad, making it a really special family name."
The newly minted-mom of three shared that the couple settled on the middle name first and then "fell in love with Barrett."
"We've loved the nickname 'Bear' for a long time and considered using that name for Jett, but decided to hold onto it. Since then, we've always wanted a baby named Bear, and after seeing our sweet son for the first time, we knew this name was the perfect fit."
In an Instagram Story in January, the proud mom opened up about how she'd been adjusting to life with three kids.
"Most amazing thing about this special small window of time with a newborn is being able to hold, cuddle, nurse, and be with him 24/7," she wrote. "It's a time like no other that you'll never get back."
"BUT. The hardest part of this short phase is missing my big kids," she went on to admit. "Daddy is doing the best job in the world showering them with attention and adventures but this mama misses her big babies."
