US star Alex Morgan has given birth to her first child.

Striker Morgan America announced she was pregnant in October, just three months after helping their women retain the World Cup title.

The Orlando Pride player revealed that she and her husband, Cervando Carrasco, a former LA Galaxy midfielder, welcomed a girl named Charlie Elena Carrasco into the world on Thursday.

“Charlie Elena Carsco, who weighed 8 lbs 5 at 11:30 a.m. on May, made her great entry into the world,” Morgan posted on Twitter.

“He forced us to wait longer than we expected, but I should have known he would just go his way and only go his way. My Super Moon Baby.”

In addition to winning two World Cups, Morgan also won an Olympic gold medal at the 2012 Games in London.
