Two-time World Cup winner Morgan is expecting a baby girl in April but believes she can be fit enough for when the Games officially begin in Tokyo on July 24, although the soccer tournament is due to start two days earlier.
Whilst acknowledging the quick turnaround, the 30-year-old is determined to continue her stellar soccer career throughout motherhood.
“After having a healthy baby, I want to get back with the national team and look forward to playing in Tokyo.”
Morgan is considered one of the best players in the world and won gold at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Taking inspiration from a host of elite athletes, she wants to continue playing at the highest level whilst bringing up her new family.
“I plan to follow in those footsteps and be one of those women who have a family and carry my daughter around as I’m going to the next city to play,” she added.
“I still want to continue to enjoy the sport that I’ve been playing for all my life.”
The pair has been married since New Year’s Eve 2014.
