Alex Morgan is ready for her daughter Charlie to hit the soccer pitch. The Orlando Pride forward sat down with Ali Riley for the season premiere of Off the Ball, telling Riley she is looking forward to shuttling Charlie to and from soccer practice.
When asked about her favorite memories from her own childhood, Morgan cites all the sports she played.
“Growing up… [my favorite part was] just having soccer games and all different sports. Going from basketball practice to soccer practice and having our parents shuttle us around.
“I’m excited for that.”
When it comes to following in her soccer footsteps, however, Morgan is taking a no-pressure approach to Charlie’s career.
“I think Charlie’s going to be really into all different sports, and so I’m looking forward to just being mom on the sidelines and not too serious.”
Watch the latest installment of Off the Ball for more on Morgan’s life as a new mom and her journey returning to the field.
