Megan Rapinoe was the talk of the 2019 Women's World Cup in France and not just for her dominant play on the field. She's made headlines for her outspoken nature and colorful personality, and people can't get enough of her. For those fans, here's the untold truth of Megan Rapinoe.
Believe it or not, the liberal and outspoken Megan Rapinoe was raised in an extremely conservative part of northern California. She comes from a large Christian family and just so happened to grow up across the street from a church in Palo Cedro, California, as reported by Yahoo! Sports. She's the youngest of six, but only by about 11 minutes. According to ESPN, their brother Brian introduced the twins to the sport of soccer when they were 4 years old and would regularly play with them on the field across from the church.
Because Megan and Rachael were hooked on the sport by a young age, their mother, Denise, signed them up for soccer when they were five years old.
Denise also got them involved in community service as well, as noted by Sports Illustrated. They volunteered at their church, at homeless shelters, and at food banks.
