U.S. soccer star Alex Morgan announces she and her husband expecting a daughter in April

There's going to be a new member of the U.S. women's national team. 

Co-captain Alex Morgan and her husband, Servando Carrasco, a midfielder for the L.A. Galaxy, announced on social media Wednesday that they're expecting their first child, a girl, in April.

"We are already in love and we haven't even met her yet," Morgan said in an Instagram post that she also shared on Twitter. 

Morgan and Carrasco married in 2014.  

The pregnancy adds to what has already been a big year for Morgan. The U.S. women won their second consecutive World Cup title in July, and Morgan shared the lead for most goals in the tournament (six) with teammate Megan Rapinoe and England's Ellen White.

Morgan is one of four Americans selected as finalists for the Ballon D'Or, awarded to the world's best player. The winner will be announced Dec. 2. 

Morgan's announcement likely rules her out of next summer's Tokyo Olympics. The Olympic tournament begins July 22.
