In July of last year, as part of the USWNT, Morgan helped lead her teammates (including co-captains Megan Rapinoe and Carli Lloyd) to the United States’ fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup championship.
"I'm so lucky to be able to play a team sport my whole life and learn from these girls and women around me," Morgan says.
Morgan says it was "so hard" to keep her Barbie news a secret, but is now thrilled to spread the word.
"Just to see what Barbie has been able to do to give us all a platform to give that generation that reality of being the next Alex Morgan, being the next Ibtihaj Muhammad," Morgan continues.
Adds Muhammad, 34, "This is a big moment."
"I'm so proud to be a Barbie," Morgan says.
The doll is currently available on Barbie.com for $29.99.
