Alex Morgan's 2020 plans have changed pretty drastically in recent weeks.

The United States women's national team star was set to play in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo in late July. Of course, the Summer Games have since been delayed a year to 2021 due to the coronavirus.

Morgan, 30, is set to give birth to her first child in April. She had planned on giving birth, taking care of her baby and then competing in the Summer Olympics.

The latter won't be happening anymore - at least for another year - but that's far from the most important thing right now.

Morgan addressed everything that's been going on in a feature story for Glamour. She showed off the magazine cover on Tuesday.

Morgan told Glamour that she feels the decision to push back the Olympics was the right one.

“There are a hundred things that have been going through my mind,” she told Glamour. “Now I have more time to deal, and I’ll have more time with my daughter without the endless questions. I can figure it out with a little more calm and a little more clarity. I have to look to the positives.”
