Orlando Pride and 2015 Women's World Cup-winning forward Sydney Leroux Dwyer gave birth to her second child, a daughter on Friday morning.

Dwyer shared a picture of her daughter, Roux James, on Twitter and said the little bundle of joy was born in the wee hours of the morning. Her husband, Dom, also tweeted photos of Roux and their oldest child, Cassius.

Roux's birth came just in time for the U.S. women's national team's quarterfinal matchup against France in the Women's World Cup–and she even getting the chance to "cheer" on Megan Rapinoe's performance in the 2-1 win.

Roux will have another match to tune in for on Tuesday, when the USA meets England in the semifinals.
