US women’s soccer star Jessica McDonald has joyful reunion at World Cup

Eric Verhoeven/Soccrates/Getty Images(PARIS) -- U.S. women’s soccer star Jessica McDonald will have an extra special supporter in the stands Friday when Team USA takes on France in their highly-anticipated World Cup quarterfinal.

McDonald, one of only a handful of moms among the 552 players in the World Cup, was reunited with her son, Jeremiah, 7, Wednesday in France.

The U.S. Women’s National Team star shared a video on Twitter of Jeremiah shrieking, running toward her and then giving his mom a long, giant hug.

“I want him to be proud of his mom,” McDonald said in her USWNT bio.

McDonald and the rest of Team USA will play France on Friday at 3 p.m. EST, in Paris.
