“Baby’s first flip,” the Olympic gold-medalist, 27, captioned a Friday, May 17, Instagram upload. “I peed myself a little hahahaha. #pregnancy.”

In the funny footage, the gymnast bounced up and down on a trampoline, giggling and cradling her baby bump. “Oh, my,” her husband, also 27, said. “What are you about to do? Whoa! You’re out of control.”

While the Dancing With the Stars winner assured him she was “OK,” a woman behind the camera said, “I wouldn’t do any flip. Are you OK? Breathe.”

Johnson and the NFL player announced in April that they have a little one on the way after suffering a miscarriage in October 2017.

“Baby East… we cannot WAIT to welcome you to the world and shower you with love,” the Winning Balance author captioned a baby bump photo on Instagram at the time. “@andreweast WE DID IT! #pregnant.”

The Washington Redskins player shared a sweet shot of his own, writing, “Coming 2019 @thebabyeast.”

The next day, the couple spoke to Us Weekly exclusively how scary pregnancy is after their loss. “We’re just praying that this one … that we make it all the way. We’ll see,” Johnson told Us. “We’ve gone to the doctor now three times and we’ve checked blood work and everything and everything looks good, so we’ve been very cautious as to when we were going to announce. We feel like we’re in a very good spot.”

Johnson and East, who tied the knot in 2016, have yet to share the sex of their baby. “We already have the results, [but] we haven’t opened them yet,” the pregnant star told Us. “We want to do a big gender reveal and we have no idea how to do it. I want to find out now.”
