Exactly one year ago today I was made the happiest girl in the world by being officially pronounced Mrs. East. @andrewdeast you are my best friend and the love of my life. Happy One Year Anniversary my love! #aisleughview #youdabest #sexybeast #myhubs #mrandmrs #anniversary
The reason for such a comment from her had been due to the fact that immediately after their wedding, Andrew had to leave for Oakland for his training for the Raiders. A few months after this, Shawn had to leave for Rio for her Olympics tournament. Shawn also revealed:
“We lived out of a Hampton Inn for four months and we cooked from our hotel room,”
Not having the comfort of home would have definitely hurt the newly-weds. Besides, there was the stress since Andrew was out of NFL and was trying for another team as a free agent. But slowly after a hectic one year, there was some peace and rest. The two then settled in Nashville and are happy together. They also celebrated their first year anniversary. Andrew too expressed his happiness but accepted that wedding is scary.
There was some bad time as well for the couple. In October 2017, Shawn suffered a miscarriage. The couple revealed about this loss on their social media via a video.
“The past 48 hours have been some of the happiest, scariest, and saddest times of my life. My husband Andrew and I found out that we were unexpectedly pregnant, only to find out hours later some tragic news. I have been crying more than I ever have, but am still optimistic for what is next.”
