Solo retweeted the clip on her account with boy and girl baby emoticons. The merry news came just months after Solo revealed she had sustained a heartbreaking miscarriage with twins.

Speaking to Elle in a wide-ranging interview for their July issue, Solo revealed she was running for president of the United States Soccer Federation (USFF) when she suffered the loss back in February 2018.

Solo and Stevens had been trying to get pregnant for a while at the time. The former US Women’s National Soccer Team goalkeeper was in a lot of pain even a week after miscarrying, when doctors explained to her she'd actually been pregnant with twins but that one of the eggs was considered an ectopic pregnancy.

“The doctor said I was hours from dying,” she told Elle. “They ended up having to remove my fallopian tube.”

Solo explained to the magazine that she began the process of in vitro fertilization soon after suffering the devastating loss, and remained strong through it all.

Solo described to Elle how it was having to put animals down in her Greensboro North Carolina home when they would get hurt, and even recalled her past experience of dealing with wildfires and coyotes.

“We see life and death very often,” she said. “So much of what we do can be catastrophic if we make mistakes. It’s not for the faint of heart.”
