White, England’s all-time top women’s scorer, posted a photo of her and her husband holding the Euros trophy.
The photo was with a captain that read: “Mum and Dad. April 2023.”
Following the news, she received floods of messages from some of her former clubs and team-mates.
Casey Stoney said: “Huge congratulations to you both .”
Lauren Hemp, who started the Euros final, responded: “Woweee mumma ells .”
One fan said: “BABY ELLEN WHITE OH MY GOD EVERYONE STAY CALM.”
A second admitted: “Can’t describe how happy I am for Ellen white what a brilliant year she’s had #ellenwhite.”
The ex-striker scored 52 goals for her country, the last of those coming in the 8-0 win over Norway in the Euros.
But White called time on her 17-year career less than one month after the victory over Germany.
She played for Chelsea, Leeds, Arsenal, Notts County, Birmingham and most recently Manchester City, winning 10 major trophies.
