USWNT star Alex Morgan posted two adorable photos with her husband to Instagram on Sunday, but our attention went straight to her growing baby bump.
Morgan uploaded two photos alongside Servando Carrasco, her spouse of 5 years, while the two were in Berkeley, California, over the weekend. Morgan and Carrasco met while they both were attending and playing soccer at UC Berkeley, and according to Morgan, this was the first time the two had been back to the city together since they graduated.
“So many good memories!” she gushed underneath the snaps of the couple atop Grizzly Peak Vista Point overlooking the city.
Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris are teammates on and off the soccer field, and on Saturday, the two World Cup champions officially tied the knot.
Krieger, 35, and Harris, 34, wed on December 28 at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida, surrounded by family and friends — and several fellow stars from the United States Women’s National Soccer Team, including Megan Rapinoe, Crystal Dunn and Alex Morgan, who took to Instagram to share snaps from the celebration.
Two-time World Cup champion Alex Morgan knew there was something special about the 2019 U.S. women’s national soccer team – its voice.
The 2019 roster, which was without Abby Wambach and Hope Solo but gained names like Rose Lavelle and Crystal Dunn, quickly delivered record TV ratings. Their comments and actions off the field, however, were what sent them to an unprecedented level of fame.
That deluge of backlash would be difficult for anyone to weather, but Morgan believes that growth between the 2015 World Cup and this year’s iteration helped to prepare the 2019 team.
“In 2015, we realized that we had the microphone but we were still new at learning how to use it,” she told AOL.com on behalf of DICK’S Sporting Goods. “I think we grew into that in the last four years.”
DICK’S Sporting Goods believes every kid deserves a chance to play and is stepping up to the plate to help turn those dreams into reality.
The company will be matching up to $1 million in donations made to the DICK’S Foundation at store checkouts from now until September 13, 2019, with the goal of providing access to sports for one million youth athletes over the next five years.
USWNT star and World Cup champion Alex Morgan, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and NBA star turned ESPN analyst Jalen Rose are among the famous faces supporting the cause. Former Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn also joins Fitzgerald and Rose on the DICK’S Sporting Goods Sports Matter Advisory Board.
Since their World Cup victory, the players have been hopping from celebration to celebration, with their medals, trophies and plenty of alcohol in tow.
On Wednesday, the team’s celebratory parade rolled through the streets of Lower Manhattan – and our favorite rowdy athletes put on quite a show for their fans both in person and on social media.
Stars including Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Ali Krieger took to Instagram to post photos and videos from the party on wheels. As has become the norm for these players, there was plenty of singing, dancing and champagne to go around.
