The brides-to-be first revealed they were dating in November 2016, three months after Melton announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton and two months after Wambach separated from wife Sarah Huffman in the wake of the two-time Olympic gold medalist’s DUI arrest.

“Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now,” Melton captioned a selfie with her new girlfriend on Facebook on November 13. “So today, I’m going to share with you my new love. Her name is Abby. You might recognize her from soccer. … She loves me for all the things I’ve always wanted to be loved for. She’s just my favorite. My person.”

The couple continued to document their blossoming romance on social media in the months leading up to their engagement. Last week, the Carry On, Warrior author posted an Instagram shot with her future fiancée, writing, “Thank you for being my home @abbywambach. I love us.”
