2019 really is Alex Morgan‘s year. As if leading the U.S. Women’s National Team to a FIFA World Cup win wasn’t enough of a celebration, now she’s expecting her first child! The 30-year-old soccer pro announced via Instagram on Oct. 23 that she and her Los Angeles Galaxy star husband Servando Carrasco, 31, are going to be first time parents. In a beachside photo she’s seen in a pink halter dress holding a sign over her baby bump that read “Baby girl April 2020,” while Servando has is arm around her as the two held up a baby onesie with “Ready or not” written on the front and arrows pointing at both the mother and father to be. One thing is for sure, this baby girl is going to have soccer in her future with such incredible athletes for parents.
“We are already in love and we haven’t even met her yet. Newest member of the Carrasco family, coming soon,” Alex captioned the pic, along with a photo of the couple holding little baby Nike sneakers and another romantic shot of them holding hands in the sand as the sun set on the beach. The photos were taken by Hana Asano (@hanaasano).
With the baby due in April, that means Alex was likely in the early stages of her pregnancy when she along with fellow Co-Captains Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe led the USWNT to a 2-0 World Cup win over the Netherlands on July 7 in Paris. During the FIFA World Cup play, Alex scored six goals, including five against Thailand in their opening match and one of the two goals that helped the team beat the Netherlands for the title.
Alex and Servando tied the knot in a romantic New Year’s Eve ceremony in 2014 after getting engaged the previous December They wed in front of 200 guests in a romantic ceremony at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Santa Barbara, California. The couple met while both played soccer during their college days at UC Berkeley. Scouts for the National Women’s Soccer League are probably lining up to sign baby girl Morgan-Carrasco the second she enters this world.
