Alex Morgan Announces She’s Pregnant; Baby Probably Already Sponsored By Nike
Alex Morgan is having a baby.
The global women’s soccer icon posted a baby announcement on social media on Wednesday, confirming the two-time Women’s World Cup winner is pregnant and expecting to give birth in April. Morgan is married to LA Galaxy midfielder Servando Carrasco, who has not won a World Cup but was able to get his team into the playoffs, unlike Morgan.
According to the announcement post, the Carrascos are expecting a baby girl. This is the couple’s first child.
“We are so overjoyed to grow our family,” Morgan told PEOPLE. “She’s the best World Cup gift I could have asked for.”
That and some free Nike sneakers for the kid.
Alex Morgan Baby Due Date
- April 2020
The timing of the pregnancy announcement shows some pretty astute family planning on the part of the couple. Morgan waited until after the 2019 Women’s World Cup to get pregnant but gave her enough time to possibly make it back into the USWNT in time for the 2020 Olympics.
The soccer portion of the 2020 Games begins July 22, about three months after Morgan’s due date. Former USWNT star Sydney Leroux recently returned to the Orlando Pride three months and a day after giving birth to her second child. Morgan will likely miss most of the 2020 NWSL season, which will begin in April.
One player who hopes maybe Morgan doesn’t return in time for the Olympics is Carli Lloyd, who has stated dissatisfaction at playing behind Morgan at the 2019 Women’s World Cup.
Either way, congratulations to the couple. We just wish they were having a baby boy, because we all know the USMNT needs more help than the USWNT.
We are already in love and we haven’t even met her yet. Newest member of the Carrasco family, coming soon. pic.twitter.com/xeJPuDQgiS— Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) October 23, 2019
