Crystal Dunn is going to be a mom.

The USWNT and Portland Thorns star announced on Thursday that she and husband Pierre Soubrier are expecting a baby due in May 2022.

Dunn has been a member of the USWNT since 2013 and a member of the Portland Thorns since 2020. She met Soubrier when she was playing for the Washington Spirit, and the two were married in 2018. Soubrier is now the head athletic trainer for the Thorns.

The baby will be joining an already somewhat large family, as the Soubrier’s have five chickens and three cats.

Upon the USWNT roster for the Australia friendlies being announced, coach Vlatko Andonovski announced that both Dunn and Christen Press had β€œdecided to take off until the end of this year,” resulting in their absences from the team over the past few camps.

Dunn is also currently in the midst of the NWSL postseason, with the Portland Thorns set to face off against the Chicago Red Stars in the semis on Sunday.
