Best-selling author and mommy blogger Glennon Doyle Melton, who is known for blogging about her Christian beliefs, parenting, divorce and addiction, announced in an emotional coming out post yesterday that she is dating two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Abby Wambach.
The snap was captioned: ‘Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.’
Wambach later posted the same photograph on Instagram. She included the caption: ‘Happy. #iseethemoonnow.’
Melton also shared a photo of the couple on Valentine’s Day, writing on Instagram: ‘And then one day it all makes sense. Every bit of it. And you can finally see your past as one long, blessed road leading you home.
‘And you understand that every bit of it was necessary and that every bit of it was holy. Thank you for being my home @abbywambach . I love us.’
Melton announced their relationship back in November 2016.
Wambach is currently in the process of divorcing fellow soccer star Sarah Huffman.
Melton announced her divorce from Craig Melton, her husband of 14 years, in August.
