US soccer superstar striker Alex Morgan and her husband, LA Galaxy player Servando Carrasco, are expecting a baby girl in April, the two-time World Cup winner announced Wednesday on Twitter.
“We are already in love and we haven’t even met her yet. Newest member of the Carrasco family, coming soon,” she wrote on social media while posting photos that showed her holding a sign that reads. “Baby girl, April 2020.”
“Can’t wait to meet my baby girl,” Carrasco wrote on Instagram.
Morgan, 30, and Carrasco, 31, have been married since New Year’s Eve 2014. This will be their first child.
The national team sent its best wishes, tweeting: “ALL THE TEARS OF JOY. The #USWNT (and Carrasco) fam is growing and we could not be more excited! Congrats @alexmorgan13 and Servando!”
Carrasco’s MLS team, the Galaxy, wrote: “Congratulations Servando and @alexmorgan13.”
The Galaxy is preparing for a playoff match Thursday against Los Angeles Football Club.
Morgan is one of the top scorers in international football history with 107 goals. She was one of the US captains at the World Cup this summer in France and scored six goals, tied for most in the tournament.
She also played on the US team that won the 2012 Olympics.
