Meet Her Husband Servando Carrasco
- Date of Birth: August 13, 1988
- Occupation: Professional Soccer Player
- Duration of Marriage: 2014 – Present
- No of Kids with Alex: One Daughter (Charlie Elena Carrasco)
After dating for nearly seven years, Alex got engaged to her longtime love, Houston Dynamo MLS player Servando Carrasco and by December of 2014, they got married. The two have been together for a very long time since they began dating when they were both in college. They both attended the University of California, Berkeley, and were both very good players and captains.
They got engaged in December of 2013 in Manhattan Beach, California, and finally got married a year later, making them a soccer power couple. The couple had a perfect romantic beach wedding on New Year’s Eve in front of 180 guests at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Santa Barbara, California.
As much as Alex is a star in her own rights, her husband seems to be able to match her completely since the two are soccer royalties. Carrasco has quietly cultivated a professional career in the field.
He joined UC-Berkeley in 2007 and quickly added a much-needed spark to the Bears’ offense. In his first season, he recorded seven points on two goals and three assists. As a sophomore Carrasco was named All-Pac-10 second-team and started in all but one game.
He met first met Morgan when they were both playing soccer at UC-Berkeley and began dating shortly after and the rest they say is history. They now have a daughter together named Charlie Elena Carrasco; she was born on the 7th of May 2020.
Analysis of Alex Morgan’s Net Worth, Income and Salary
Alex has won many awards and honors including 2012 and 2013 nomination for ESPY’s Best Breakthrough Athlete and Best Moment, respectively; 2012 Women’s Sports Foundation Sportswoman of the Year (Team Sports), 2012 U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year, 2012 FIFA World Player of the Year finalist, and 2013 CONCACAF Player of the Year.
Given all of that, it is natural for one to expect that her career has been financially rewarding as well. Has it?
Earnings from Soccer Team Contracts and International Career
Morgan started playing professional football for Western New York Flash and soon went on to big ranks winning the league championship. Her role during the league winning season is what got her into the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time.
She also became the youngest player in the national team that year. A woman known for her scoring skills, Morgan’s best goal should be the 123rd-minute winning goal against Canada during the 2012 London Olympics.
With 20 goals and 20 assists in 2012, she was ranked sixth in the list of youngest women soccer players to score 20 goals in a single year while also being named as the US Soccer Female Athlete of the Year.
Club-wise, she has played for multiple teams, including the California Storm, Orlando Pride, Lyon, Tottenham Hotspur, and more. What she has earned from these clubs, just as it is with the earnings of her international career, hasn’t been disclosed to the public. But then, it is clear that it has contributed to her net worth in no small manner. A graceful, gritty, and shining superstar on the soccer pitch, Alex Morgan earns as much as $450,000 yearly.
She Makes Over $4 Million from Endorsement Deals
While Alex has made good money from her on-field performance as a footballer, endorsement deals seem to be the biggest source of her income. Forbes listed her among its top 10 highest-paid female athletes of 2020, estimating she earned as much as $4.2 million from endorsement deals in the year under review.
A few years earlier (June 2015), Time named her the highest-paid women soccer player in America, attributing most of her income to endorsement deals. Over the years, Morgan has signed multiple endorsements deals with popular brands. Below is a list of some of the brands she’s known to have partnered with.
Proceeds from Book Sales Have Also Added to Her Wealth
A finalist for the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2012, Morgan has written a book with Simon & Schuster entitled ‘The Kicks’ which became a New York Times Best Seller.
Yes, apart from football, she is also a writer. She has written and published quite a number of books. Her first work which was published in 2013, Saving the Team, become a New York Times bestselling first book. It was written as part of a middle-grade series. The next book in the series is Sabotage Season which was also published in 2013.
Others are Shaken Up, Win or Lose, Settle the Score, and Hat Trick. All the books came as a part of The Kicks series which she signed to pen for Simon & Schuster. She has also written an inspirational book, Breakaway: Beyond the Goal. Hence, apart from football and her many endorsement deals, the woman is also making money through her writing.
Her Earnings Compared to Other Top-Earners In the Sport
Being one of the highest-paid female athletes in the world, it is only natural that Alex Morgan is also one of the highest earners in the world of female soccer. As stated earlier, she earns around $450,000 yearly.
Her Salary Compared to Her Husband’s and Top Male Footballers
Alex Morgan has been married to Servando Carrasco since 2014. He’s also a professional footballer who plays in USL League One for Fort Lauderdale CF as a midfielder as of 2021. For anyone who cares to know, it is obvious that Alex has accomplished more in the sport, more than Servando would ever get to attain.
Servando’s salary also pales when compared to his wife’s. While Alex commands $450,000 a year, her husband gets only $70,250. This makes sense as Alex plays in the top tier of the game. But then, what she earns is quite disappointing when compared to her male counterparts in the sport.
It’s no secret there is a big difference in earnings between football stars at the top of the men’s and women’s games. Nonetheless, comparing Alex’s salary to those of the top earners in male football shows that the gap is super enormous.
Even though she hasn’t been known for many controversies, she got into some issues at Disney World where she and some of her friends were booted out of the camp for being “impaired and verbally aggressive”. After the event, she had a conversation with the police from which a video was later released which added more fire to the controversy.
“You guys are lying right now,” Morgan said in the video. “I can’t imagine what black people go through. This is insane,” she added.
Nevertheless, the soccer star later came out to apologize to her followers on Twitter. “I want to apologize for my actions that occurred over the weekend. I will learn from this to make sure it does not happen again. #liveandlearn” she tweeted.
