Carli Lloyd's upcoming retirement means 'Mrs. Hollins' can go out into the world

It is finally time to send Mrs. Hollins out into the world. 

Carli Lloyd married her high school sweetheart, Brian Hollins, in 2016. For simplicity’s sake, Lloyd kept her maiden name for her business identity. After all, Lloyd had built a well-known brand as one of the world’s top soccer players. 

“From the minute we got married, I have been Mrs. Hollins everywhere except on the back of my jersey,” Lloyd said. “I'm excited. Excited to spend more time with my husband. We want to go on trips, we want to ski together. We want to just do all the things that I've had on hold.  

“I reunited with my family so we're going to have a lot more time to spend together. And my friends. And just being home and being able to do normal things like every other normal human does.”
