Soccer super-star Hope Solo is pregnant—with twins! The former U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team goalkeeper recently revealed her baby news (times two) while co-hosting the beIN SPORTS Weekend Winners show.
According to Solo, she and husband former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, will have a boy and a girl. During the announcement, Solo told fans, “Miniature soccer team on the way.”
The couple’s sweet baby news comes months after Solo suffered a miscarriage, also with twins. Last February Solo miscarried what she thought was a single pregnancy. Still in pain a week later, the soccer star went to the doctor only to find out that she had a second, ectopic pregnancy.
In an interview with Elle, Solo said, “The doctor said I was hours from dying. They ended up having to remove my fallopian tube.” Despite the devastating setback Solo and Stevens kept trying, via IVF. Now it looks like the couple’s determination has paid off—and Solo will soon become a true soccer mom.
