(L-R) Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco celebrate at their wedding reception at on Dec. 31, 2014 in Santa Barbara, California.
Soccer supercouple Alex Morgan and husband Servando Carrasco are adding to their family this spring.
“Can’t wait to meet my baby girl,” Carrasco posted to Instagram, along with a photo of him, Morgan and their two dogs, Kona and Blue, posing beside the ocean.
In the photo, the parents-to-be are holding a letter board announcing their expansion: “Adding 1 more to the fam … April 2020 / Baby Girl.”
The dogs each have bandanas. One reads: “Baby human coming April 2020.”
The other appears to say: “I didn’t sign up for this.”
Morgan, 30, and Carrasco, 31, met when they were freshmen at Cal in 2007 and were married on New Year’s Eve in 2014. Both are professional soccer players.
Carrasco is a midfielder for the LA Galaxy, which is in the midst of a Major League Soccer playoff push.
Morgan, meanwhile, is one of the most dominant strikers in the women’s game, having scored 107 goals for the U.S. women’s national team. Six of those goals came at this past summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, where the U.S. beat the Netherlands in the final to defend its championship from 2015. Morgan, who was also a key player on the 2011 U.S. team that finished as runners-up, tied for the most goals by any player at the tournament.
In September, Morgan finished second to teammate Megan Rapinoe in voting for the Best FIFA Women’s Player of 2019, and earlier this week she was named a finalist for the prestigious women’s Ballon d’Or award.
On the field, however, Morgan has had a tougher go of it since France. Injuries limited her to just two games with her pro team, the Orlando Pride of the NWSL, since the World Cup triumph.
With the USWNT’s Victory Tour now wrapped up, the team is in the process of determining a replacement for coach Jill Ellis, who led the team during the past two World Cup cycles. From there the focus turns to qualifying for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, with the continental qualifying tournament expected to take place in January or February.
Should the U.S. qualify, the Olympic tournament would take place July 22 through Aug. 7. Morgan, a two-time Olympian and 2012 gold medalist for Team USA, hasn’t said yet whether she intends to try to make the team.
