Real Madrid fullback Marta Corredera has revealed the reason for her recent absences from the team, announcing that she is expecting a baby.

Translation: We are VERY HAPPY to announce that the family is growing.

Now it’s time to take care of myself for awhile and take a sports break to enjoy every moment of this new stage!

We look forward to seeing you!

Juggling family life and a professional career is never easy, especially for female footballers. Many forgo pregnancy until they retire, although there are also a number of high-profile athletes that have done the opposite, such as Alex Morgan and Serena Williams.

Marta Corredera is another that joins the list, stating:

It’s a dream to combine motherhood and football. I feel good and I really want to enjoy this new stage.

The Managing Madrid family congratulates her on this joyous occasion and wishes her and her future child the best of health.
