(L-R) Monique Lamoureux-Morando, her husband Anthony and their newborn child, Mickey.
Make it one gold medal and one baby in 2018 for Team USA’s Monique Lamoureux-Morando.
After helping the U.S. women’s national ice hockey team to its first gold medal in 20 years at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, Lamoureux-Morando gave birth to her son Mickey Tuesday evening. He is the first child for her and her husband, Anthony.
And in just about two months, Mickey will be joined by a future linemate when Monique’s twin sister, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson, gives birth to her first child. Jocelyne, who scored the gold-medal-winning shootout goal to beat Canada in PyeongChang, is due in January, about seven weeks behind Monique.
The Lamoureuxs are already a huge hockey family. The twins, who played college hockey at the University of North Dakota and University of Minnesota, have four brothers who all also played college hockey.
