Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger Adopt Their Second Baby: "Our Hearts Are Full"
Krieger-Harris, party of four! Soccer superstars Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger have adopted their second child, a baby boy with a one-of-a-kind name. The power couple, who play together for both the US women's national soccer team and NJ/NY Gotham FC, announced the news on Aug. 16 by sharing sweet Instagram photo carousels to introduce their son. Krieger captioned her post, "Welcome to the world, Ocean Maeve! 🌊 We are so thrilled for our growing family and couldn't be more excited to have two beautiful babies to share life with! Baby Boy, you are so loved and adored already and I'm so proud to be your Mommy."
Harris echoed similar sentiments in her post, writing, "Our hearts are full during this time and we are so grateful for the love and support our family, friends and club have shown." She also mentioned their daughter Sloane's excitement for her brother's arrival, adding, "Sloane has been thriving and wakes up every morning saying 'Baby, baby.' We are incredibly thankful and excited for this new chapter as we parent 2 under 2. Let the sleepless nights rage on @alikrieger ... I wouldn't want it any other way. Ocean Maeve Krieger-Harris, welcome to the family baby boy. Your Moms and big sister love you very much."
The entire soccer community has since showered Harris and Krieger in love and congratulations for their latest family addition. Angel City FC player Sydney Leroux wrote on her Instagram Stories, "Welcome to the family sweet Ocean. Aunties loves you already! @ashlynharris24 @alikrieger We add ANOTHER ONE! So happy for you mamas!!!" North Carolina Courage player Merritt Mathias commented on Krieger's post, "MY HEART. Ah, I just love him so much!"
Ocean's arrival comes more than one year after Harris and Krieger adopted their first child, a daughter named Sloane Phillips, who was born last Valentine's Day. The couple first met at USWNT camp in 2010 and started off as friends but didn't confirm their romantic relationship until announcing their engagement in March 2019. They tied the knot later that year in a gorgeous Miami wedding attended by Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd, and more.
Congratulations to the growing Krieger-Harris family!
