USWNT's Harris and Krieger have announced they adopted a baby girl

The couple embraced Sloane Phillips, who was brought into the world on Friday; the duo announced this with posts via social media.

The United States women's national team stars

Ashlyn Harris


Ali Krieger

have declared they have adopted a baby girl. 

Harris and Krieger, who both play for NWSL team

Orlando Pride

, tied the knot in December 2019 and have now affirmed their adopted daughter was born on Friday. 

The pair join

Alex Morgan

, who brought forth her baby girl in May 2020, as moms on the USWNT. 

"Welcome to our family, Sloane Phillips. We are so in love with you already!" Krieger said on Instagram. "This has been one of the most beautiful yet stressful processes I've ever experienced with you, Ashlyn Harris and I love you even more throughout this journey, if that's even possible.

"When we first dated, we always spoke about adoption and always wanted to give a child a loving, happy and stable home. I cannot wait to give her the world and be the best Mom I can be with you right by my side."

Harris added: "My heart is exploding with joy. We did it, baby! All of the ups and downs, tears, stress and anxiety was worth it to have this beautiful blessing in our arms.

"Thank you to our wonderful family, friends, agency, teammates and coaches who have supported us fully through this process and now we are SO PROUD to share her with the world!

"To all my adoptive families out there. Wow, we see you. Whew, this has been a very stressful process. I'm hopeful to tell our story one day but for now, we can breathe again."

Krieger, a right-back, and shot-stopper Harris were both excluded from the USWNT run for the 2021

SheBelieves Cup

, which commences on Thursday. 

Their nonappearance from the list at first was surprising, yet lead manager Vlatko Andonovski said at that point:

"I don't think we should read into it at all."

Their appropriation of Sloane might clarify why they will not address the U.S. in the competition, including Argentina, Brazil, and Canada as their rivals.
