Johnson says she and East aren’t thinking about kids anytime soon – but the couple definitely wants a “big family” when the time is right.

“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.”

She adds, “When you think of what you’ve gone through personally, you could never think of someone, your child especially, going through that.”

Still, “We’re definitely going to have athletic babies,” she says. “We live for sports.”
