Retired Soccer Player Lauren Holiday Diagnosed with Brain Tumor While Pregnant

Retired soccer star Lauren Holiday, who is also pregnant with her first child, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

The 28-year-old athlete has won a gold medal in the Olympics two times as part of the U.S. women’s national soccer team. Her husband, NBA player Jrue Holiday, opened up about the devastating diagnosis as they await the birth of their first child.

Lauren must wait to have surgery until after the birth of the couple’s daughter.

“My family comes before basketball,” Jrue, 26, told NOLA.com. “I’m obviously blessed to play this game and be in the position I am in, but my wife is the most important thing in the world to me. She comes before anything else.”

Jrue, who plays for the New Orleans Pelicans, announced he will miss time playing this NBA season to take care of his wife and daughter.

Lauren and Jrue shared a selfie earlier in the summer – see it below.

    When the Just Jared moderator Toni Gee says he is going to teach you a lesson and then he makes a Disqus account in your name and cranks out 321 posts from that account over a course of 12 days.

    Funny. Why couldn’t you say this in your own name? Why are you using my name?

    At least you came back and made the comment from your own account this time.

    You are truly one vindictive evil person. After you spent 2 days manically cranking out 100 (35 on Saturday and 65 on Sunday) posts from an account you created in my name, you decided to post from your Toni Gee account?

    I see that you are now cranking out posts from the other Gwen (gwen @gwenglanvilleaccount) you switched in my name on Aug 31.

    Today Toni Gee is posting from this account:gwen (@gwenglanvilleaccount)

    Originally Toni Gee had the name Magdelene Cleoa on that account, but on Aug 31 at 4 am he changed the account name from Magdelene Cleao to gwen (@gwenglanville)

    Tally of the number of posts that Toni Gee has made in my name as of today:
