US Women’s Soccer star Alex Morgan is seven months pregnant with her first child, but she is still training with her team.
On Wednesday, the Twitter account for the U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team shared video of members of the team heading to practice in California — and among the players, Alex is seen fully dressed in workout gear, rubbing her baby bump.
Though she’s already in her third and final trimester, the 30-year-old is still keeping in tip-top shape — because, she admitted, she intends to play in the Olympics this summer, just months after she’s due to give birth.
Almost there! Alex, 30, is expecting a daughter with her husband, LA Galaxy player Servando Carrasco, 31, in April 2020

The 14-second video shows members of the women’s soccer team walking off a bus, all dressed in matching blue practice gear.
Number four off the vehicle is Alex, who has on a green top, shorts, matching socks, and sneakers.
As she turns and sees the camera, she smiles, and rubs her hand over her bump while raising her eyebrows.
She’s followed immediately by Kelley O’Hara, who opens her mouth wide in amazement and points at Alex, clearly impressed with her teammate.
‘Special guest!’ she says.

While every pregnancy is different, women are typically given the go-ahead to exercise throughout, especially if they were active before getting pregnant.
Alex, who has built a hugely successful career as an athlete, was clearly never going to slow down because of something like a baby bump.
But she has specific reasons for staying in incredible shape: Back in November, she said she has continued to train and intends to return to the field for the 2020 Olympics, which kick off in July.
That would give Alex, who is married to LA Galaxy player Servando Carrasco, roughly three months to be prepared after giving birth.
She first made the announcement about her pregnancy back in October, just three and a half months after her FIFA Women’s World Cup win.
