The 28-year-old was handed a football by the squad and fans begun a countdown for him to kick it.

Turner booted the ball and pink smoke came out, meaning he and his wife are due a girl.

The stopper was congratulated by his team-mates before going across to his wife Ashley Herron and his first child.

His partner only recently became a mother for the first time in July last year.


Their son is called Easton and Turner uploaded a number of snaps to his social media after he was born.

The 25-time capped international joked that his baby had “goalkeeper hands”.

Speaking after the gender reveal last night, Turner told GOAL: “I was nervous for sure. But it’s like an excitement kind of nervous. 

“You just want to know because I just I just like knowing.

“It’s a good feeling to know that we’re gonna have a little baby girl and I think I’m in big, big trouble in the future. She’s gonna have me wrapped around her finger.

“20 or so people from my family came down here [the stadium]. Family time is really important to my wife and I and being in London, it’s few and far between. Obviously, we’re chasing this crazy dream over there.

“That takes away from her being close to her family, because when we were in Boston, she’s from Maine, and me being only a three-hour drive from New Jersey.

“To be able to come here and for US Soccer to be so flexible to allow us to do that, it’s just a really special moment for us and I’m super excited to be a girl dad.”

Fans loved the moment, one said: “Nah, this is actually so cute! Congratulations Matt!”

Another replied: “So wholesome.”
