Hope Solo is welcoming not one but two new players to her team: she’s pregnant with twins! The former USWNT goalie made the announcement live during Monday’s broadcast of Weekend Winners, a soccer show she co-hosts on BeIN Sports. “My husband and I get to practice equality from the very beginning with one boy and one girl,” said Hope, who was one of four players to file a pay discrimination complaint against US Soccer in 2016 and continues to be a vocal advocate for equality.

Hope and her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, will be fielding a “miniature soccer team,” she joked on-air. The World Cup and Olympic champion followed up the announcement with a sweet Instagram post, writing, “this year for the holidays we will be doubling the size of our family!” Congrats to Hope, Jerramy, and the whole fam!
