Shawn Johnson Shares the Heartwarming Holiday Tradition Daughter Drew Helped Her with This Year

Giving back is important to Shawn Johnson, especially during the holiday season. This year, the Olympic gold medalist shared a special tradition with her 3-year-old daughter Drew, and it is so precious.

“One of my favorite things to do every year is to give to a local shelter or children’s hospital,” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “This year, Drew wanted to help me! 🥹 I can’t wait to include her in these traditions every year. We decided to donate gifts thanks to @buybuybaby to kids at our local hospital and we couldn’t be more excited! #buybuyBABYpartner.”

“Hey Drew! You know all the babies and the kids that are at the hospital?” Johnson asks her daughter in the video. “I thought we could wrap some presents for them.”

The toddler responds in the cutest voice, “We need to share with the babies.” When Johnson’s 1-year-old son Jet walks up, Drew tells him, “We’re wrapping presents to the babies!” Our hearts are melting, it’s just so sweet!

Drew helps her mom wrap the presents (she’s an expert taper!) while Jett chews on the wrapping paper. Then Johnson tells Drew they are ready to go to the hospital, and Drew says, “to make the babies happy.”

At the end, she twirls with the present and says, “Merry Christmas, happy holidays!” It’s the cutest thing you’ve ever seen.
