Alicia Quinn, a Team USA gymnast who was throwing the first pitch along with Johnson, congratulated the couple on her Instagram.
She posted a collage of pictures captioned: “Pretty eventful day – throwing out the first pitch, walking on out hands and @shawnjohnson getting engaged to our boy @Andrewdeast #casual #nbd #happytears.” The pair, both 23, later took to Instagram to announce the happy news, each posting their own celebratory message.
He’s an amazing athlete and he works out every day, and we have that in common.” Shawn came back to DWTS All Star in 2012 , this time with Derek Hough with whom she whon the competition.
The question in my mind is if Shawn is still dating Ryan Edwards, did they broke up, because on Ryan’s Twitter he posted a photo on him as his girl who is not Shawn any luck she is his sister?
We are not sure why or when these two broke up, but by September, 2014 Shawn attended at the Great Sports Legends Benefit Dinner with Andrew East.

News of the proposal spread after the Cubs posted a video of the pre-game festivities on their Instagram.
