Newlywed Shawn Johnson talks with People magazine about having having children.
“I’m an only child, but family is my life and I want a big one,” says Johnson. “And Andrew comes from a huge family, so it just makes sense.”
And when the time does come for kids, Johnson says she isn’t sure she wants them to pursue gymnastics.
“I would do it over again in a heartbeat, but I don’t think I could stand to see my own child go through the intensity of gymnastics,” she admits. “I think gymnastics is the greatest sport in the world for recreational sports but that intensity would scare me for my kid.”
Still, “We’re definitely going to have athletic babies,” she says. “We live for sports.”
