“This dude is completely different!” she added of her baby boy. “So! Need all the tips, tricks, trade secrets! Like how DO I KEEP HIM AWAKE?”
Johnson East and her husband welcomed Jett on July 19. At the time, they shared the following statement: “We are so happy to welcome our little man into the world. We are loving life as a family of four and soaking up every minute.”
