Morgan, 30, finished joint-top scorer at the 2019 Women’s World Cup and is viewed as one of the world’s most influential female players.

Her first child is due in April 2020, three months before USA are scheduled to dip into the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Morgan tweeted a picture of her with her other half – LA Galaxy footballer Servando Carrasco – including they are “already in love” with their “infant woman”.

” Latest member of the Carrasco family, coming quickly,” tweeted Morgan, who plays for Orlando Pride.

Morgan has scored 107 times for her nation in 169 looks and won the Women’s World Cup in 2015 and 2019.

She was named in the FIFPro World XI in 2016, 2017 and 2019, and also won the Women’s Champions League while on loan with Lyon in 2017.

She made no recommendation to her accessibility for USA at the Olympic Games, which formally start on 24 July, though the football competition begins 2 days previously.

US women’s national team (USWNT) star Alex Morgan announced that she and her husband, Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Servando Carrasco, are expecting their first child.

Morgan took to social media Wednesday afternoon to reveal the big news, posting that she and Carrasco are welcoming the “newest member of the Carrasco family” and that they “are already in love.” In the caption, Morgan also revealed that the couple is having a girl.

Morgan has been a star for the USWNT since her international breakout during the 2011 World Cup in Germany. Making her name donning the number 13, Morgan has earned 169 caps, two World Cups, and an Olympic gold medal in her eight years with the world’s best squad. The 30-year-old’s 107 goals in that span puts her in a tie with USWNT great Michelle Akers for fifth on the national team’s all-time leading goal scorers list.

Her husband is a star on the pitch in his own right. A nine-year Major League Soccer (MLS) veteran, Carrasco has accumulated 90 starts and played for five different teams throughout his professional career. He and Morgan met while they were both leading their teams at University of California-Berkley and tied the knot in 2014 after many years of dating.

As expected, many in the sporting world have already flooded social media with messages of congratulations for the couple.

According to her Instagram post, Morgan is due in April of next year. With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics kicking off in late July, the prolific scorer could potentially return in time to suit up for the USWNT. At the end of last month, fellow Orlando Pride striker Sydney Leroux recently returned to play in the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) just three months after giving birth to her second child. Similarly, former USWNT star Amy Rodriguez bounced back relatively quickly after having each of her two sons.

Whether Morgan has any interest in returning to the national team in time for the Olympics remains to be seen, but the entire soccer world will certainly be anxiously awaiting her return.
