True love wins! Former soccer star Abby Wambach has found romance again, and it’s with a well-known Christian blogger. Keep reading how formerly straight mom of three Glennon Doyle Melton is gushing about their new relationship.
Wow! It sure didn’t take soccer legend Abby Wambach, 36, long to find love again while still in the middle of her shocking divorce from Sarah Huffman, 36. She’s now in a happily committed relationship with Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton, 40, author of the best-selling memoir and Oprah Winfrey book club pick “Love Warrior.” Glennon lived up to her book’s title by professing to the world in an epic Facebook post that it, “Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now. So today, I’m going to share with you my new love,” alongside a smiling selfie cheek to cheek with Abby.
Glennon announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton in Aug., and in just a few short months has fallen head over heels for her new love. “Her name is Abby. You might recognize her from soccer. She was one of the best players of all time, and she has been a fierce and committed advocate for women’s equality for a decade,” Glennon shared. “Abby is deeply sensitive and kind. She has never been afraid to be herself, even when the world told her not to be. I learn from her everyday about the woman I want to become.” Aww, this is the real deal!
Being a totally modern family, her soon to be ex and her three kids are all fine with their mom’s new partner. “She’s unwaveringly good to Craig, to the kids, to Sister and to all my people. And oh my God, she is so good to me. She loves me for all the things I’ve always wanted to be loved for. She’s just my favorite. My person,” the momastery.com blogger gushed. If you’ve read her site, you’ll know Glennon’s not one to hide any of her feelings so it’s no surprise she’s opening up about finding love with Abby. She’s a supporter of LGBT rights and met Abby in Sept. when she was one of the inspirational guests on Glennon’s latest book tour, The Together Tour.
“So anyway. What I’m trying to say is. PRECIOUS WORLD: I LOVE ABBY. JOY! I’m so happy. Love Wins,” Glennon wrapped up her epic message. We’re so happy that these two have found such happiness after their respective breakups! It sounds like these lovebirds are in it for the long haul.
