It’s safe to say that Shawn Johnson East and her husband, Andrew East, have been absolutely over the moon since welcoming their precious baby boy. The couple welcomed their second child on July 19, and over the course of the past few days, they’ve been sharing glimpses of their son on social media. But on Friday, the proud parents — who also share 21-month-old daughter Drew Hazel — finally revealed the unique name they chose for their son.

In a video compilation shared to the former Olympian’s Instagram account, the couple revealed footage of their baby boy meeting his grandparents and leaving the hospital. Upon their return to their home, the couple walked through their front door to find their son’s first name spelled out in big, bold letters with dazzling light bulbs. The name in question: Jett! But that wasn’t all.
