If you didn?t know the name Alex Morgan before last summer, you definitely do now. The 30-year-old captured the hearts of many Americans as a superstar for the U.S. Women?s National Team during the 2019 Women?s World Cup and her legend continues to grow. So has her belly.
Shortly after the World Cup, the U.S. Soccer star announced she would be having her first child, a baby girl, in April 2020 with soccer player husband Servando Carrasco, who played for the MLS? LA Galaxy last season.
The post received and eye-popping 1.6 million likes on social media, proving once again just how popular she has become.
Although she is seven months pregnant, it?s not stopping her from training for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo later this summer. In fact, she is planning on playing once her child is born and is doing all she can to keep in shape.
Alex Morgan Training While Pregnant
It?s one thing to casually workout while pregnant. It?s a completely different story for a woman to work on her goal-scoring abilities while carrying a baby due in a couple of months.
Morgan, a co-captain on the U.S. soccer team, was quick to criticize her passing on the film by Beast Mood Soccer, but she?s still a wizard with the soccer ball. The second shot she puts on goal is absolutely outrageous and shows she can still perform at the highest level before the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Of course, there will be some controversy surrounding this. Should women?s soccer star Alex Morgan be doing that much physical activity? Why would she risk it? The list of questions goes on and on.
At the moment, though. That doesn?t seem to matter. All she is focused on is the newest member of the Carrasco family being a healthy baby and helping the United States women?s national soccer team earn an Olympic gold medal.
Perhaps another parade in New York City is in order if that happens, too.
