The 29 year old Olympian gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month, and welcomed son Jett James East along with husband Andrew East.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, July 31, the baby’s mother revealed the significance and meaning behind her son’s name.
Sharing adorable snaps of newborn Jett with herself and his father, Shawn captioned the pictures as, “Jett James East,” disclosing his middle name for the very first time, while also adding, Jett is “my great great great grandmothers name” while James is “Andrew’s brothers name”, shedding light on how her baby’s name reflects a deep family significance and eternal bond.
Shawn and Andrew had previously announced their baby’s arrival into this blessed world via Instagram on July 20, giving us all updates on the infant’s health sharing that he weighed 9 lb and 13 oz at the time of his birth, calling him a “bundle of joy”.
In a conversation with ‘Us Weekly’ Jett’s mommy expressed their happiness sharing, “Andrew and I are so excited to announce the arrival of our little man. He is happy and healthy, and we are so obsessed with him!”
After Shawn’s daughter Drew developed a ear infection, the Olympian had expressed her concern via her Instagram story that read, “Had some of the hardest and most emotional days of my life trying to take care of both my babies but isolating from Drew. I would just hear her cry for ‘mama’ and my soul would crush.”
