NBC Sports reported that she is due in April, three months before the Tokyo Games; Morgan’s goal is to play at the Olympics.
Morgan and Carrasco, who currently plays for the LA Galaxy, met while students at the University of California playing soccer, ESPN reported, and they were married on New Year’s Eve in 2014.
The AP reported Morgan’s season with the Orlando Pride in the National Women’s Soccer League was cut short by a knee injury.
