Five Months Pregnant & Still Playing Competitive Soccer

Olympic gold medallist and professional footballer, Sydney Leroux Dwyer, revealed on Social media that her and professional footballer husband Dom Dwyer are expecting. Check it out!

“I didn’t think I’d be starting off preseason 5.5 months pregnant but here we are” she tweeted. The post quickly gained traction and stood at a staggering 114k likes on Instagram and a further 30k likes on Twitter.

Check it out:

Leroux, who has been capped 75 times for the USA is a former member of the 2015 Olympic team. She was also part of the first team that was honoured with a ticker tape parade in New York City after defeating Japan 5-2 in the FIFA Women’s World Cup as well as winning the 2012 London Olympics

She currently plays for Orlando Pride in the National Women’s Soccer League. That said, pregnancy doesn’t seem to be slowing this go-getter down.
