Former U.S. women's national team goalkeeper Hope Solo announced the birth of her baby twins, Vittorio and Lozen, on Thursday.

Solo shared the news in a video on Uninterrupted, thanking the healthcare workers who assisted in Vittorio and Lozen's birth.  

"Please meet Vittorio and Lozen Stevens, both born in the middle of a pandemic on March 4," Solo said. "We would like to thank all the doctors who helped take care of our babies during our time in the NICU."

The 2015 Women's World Cup champion announced her pregnancy in December 2019. Solo, who is married to former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens, previously detailed a life-threatening health scare stemming from a miscarriage. 

Solo, who also won two Olympic gold medals (2008 and 2012) in her USWNT career, is up for induction to the National Soccer Hall of Fame this year in her first time on the ballot. She "warrants a slam-dunk induction," according to Sports Illustrated's Brian Straus.

More babies in the USWNT extended family are expected this year, too. Alex Morgan is due to give birth this month, while Heather O'Reilly is also pregnant and is due in June.
