The former City striker posted a photo of her and partner Callum Convery with the caption reading ‘Mum and Dad April 2023’ on the social media site yesterday.

The news comes just months after the Lionesses’ all time leading goalscorer announced her shock retirement in August following her side’s memorable Euro 2022 success.

Born in Aylesbury in 1989, White is one of the countries most revered women’s footballers after making over 200 apperances for the likes of Chelsea, Birmingham City and Arsenal before ending her career with Manchester City.

During her time in Manchester, she won the Women’s FA Cup and FA Women's Continental Tyres League Cup across her three seasons at the club.

She is best remembered for her pivotal role with England at international level though, after scoring a record 52 goals in 113 appearances. She won the Golden Boot at 2019’s World Cup in France while she also represented Great Britain at the 2012 and 2022 Olympics. White was named England women's player of the year three times during her career.

A heartwarming video of her former England manager Sarina Wiegman was posted yesterday, as she reacted to the news, the Dutch head coach said: "It's really great, very nice. I want to congratulate her but I haven't had the time to call her yet. I'm very happy for them, I have just found out today.

"She has been with Callum for a long time so you can expect it but you never know as it's something personal. I don't think she was planning on coming back [for the World Cup] anyway!".

Everyone at ManchesterWorld would like to congratulate Ellen and Callum on the news of the couple’s April arrival.
