Megan Rapinoe's got baby fever.

The US Women's National Team striker scored a gorgeous goal off the volley to put her team up 2-0 in its match against Brazil Sunday afternoon. And after burying the Lindsey Horan cross into the back of the net, Rapinoe immediately found the nearest camera for a special, baby-inspired celebration.

The pink-haired star smiled wide into the camera before wrapping her arms into a cradle and moving side to side to "rock the baby" - a popular celebration across sports. But this time, it had an extra special meaning.

Rapinoe was clearly shouting out her longtime USWNT teammates and close friends Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger, who just last week adopted their first child. Their new daughter, Sloane Phillips, FaceTimed Rapinoe for good luck ahead of the USWNT match against Canada on Thursday.

And even though Sloane was born less than 10 days ago, she undoubtedly already knows that "Auntie P" - short for Pinoe - is her favorite aunt of all.

After rocking the baby, Rapinoe blew a big kiss into the camera for baby Sloane before jogging back to finish out the game. The USWNT went on to win 2-0, keeping head coach Vlatko Andonovski undefeated in his national team career thus far.
