When we think of Alex Morgan, our minds might automatically turn to her impressive career in professional soccer, her four FIFA World Cup appearances or handful of Summer Olympic Games. Understandably, we think first of her outstanding career on the pitch—but the 34-year-old is so much more than that.
She reminded us of this in a TikTok post on Jan. 22. The star athlete shared the sweetest must-see video to her account, which featured her and her daughter sharing an embrace after one of Morgan’s San Diego Wave FC games. In the clip, the camera followed her 3-year-old daughter, Charlie, as she ran onto the pitch to find her mom. With a huge smile on her face, Morgan scooped up her daughter and gave her a big hug.
“Best kind of post game hugs❤️,” she captioned the video, which she aptly set to the tune of the popular TikTok song, “Little Life” by Cordelia.
Her fans were, understandably, just as enamored with the adorable footage as we were.
“That’s so cute,” one gushed of the pair.
“Awww she’s so adorable,” another added.
The consensus was clear: the duo are undeniably cute together. Currently on break from pro play, we’re sure Morgan is enjoying time spent with her husband, Servando Carrasco, and their daughter. But, for our part, we can’t wait to see more moments shared between the family on the pitch. With the NWSL season kicking off in March, we fully anticipate more shared moments soon enough.
