[[[LOVE WINS ANNOUNCEMENT PART ONE]]] 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. 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. And honestly? Those are the least impressive things about her. Abby is deeply sensitive and kind. The kids call her an M&M because she looks tough on the outside but inside she’s really mushy and sweet. Abby’s brave. Not just with her words but with her entire being. 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. Wanted to answer a few questions you might have: Isn’t this fast, G? Yes, it is. How is Craig? He’s his beautiful, kind, brave self. He’s dating too — and we are both supportive of each other’s relationships. How are the kids? I’ll let them speak for themselves, or not. I can tell you that as usual, we’re walking through this together. They have the love and support of their dad, me, their grandparents, their aunts and uncles, their church, their teachers, their friends’ families. They’re lucky kids, to be surrounded by so much love. We have family dinners together – all six of us — and Abby cooks. (She is an AMAZING chef because Jesus loves me). We are a modern, beautiful family. Our children are loved. So loved. And because of all of that love, they are brave. When Craig and I sat them down to tell them about Abby I started by saying: “In our family, we live and tell the truth about who we are no matter what, and then love each other through it — and I’m about to show you how that’s done.” [[CONTINUED IN LOVE WINS PART TWO]]]
She found love! Christian mom blogger Glennon Doyle Melton, who recently announced her divorce from her husband of 14 years, revealed that she's dating soccer star Abby Wambach.
Melton, 40, took to Facebook on Sunday, November 13, to share an adorable photo of herself with Wambach, 36, and a lengthy note confirming their newfound romance.
"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," the Love Warrior author wrote. "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. And honestly? Those are the least impressive things about her."
The happy couple's news comes three months after Melton announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton, and two months after the two-time Olympic gold medalist separated from wife Sarah Huffman in the wake of Wambach's April DUI arrest.
"Abby is deeply sensitive and kind," Glennon continued. "[My] kids call her an M&M because she looks tough on the outside but inside she's really mushy and sweet. Abby's brave. Not just with her words but with her entire being. She has never been afraid to be herself, even when the world told her not to be. I learn from her every day about the woman I want to become. She is committed to her friends and family. … 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 Carry On, Warrior author also revealed that her ex Craig has started dating again, and that they're "both supportive of each other's relationships," as are the former couple's three children.
"What I need you to know — and what I know you need to know — is that I am deeply, finally, FINE," Glennon added. "Fine through my bones and soul and mind and just every fiber of me. … I have officially become a woman who knows who she is and refuses to betray herself. So anyway. What I'm trying to say is. PRECIOUS WORLD: I LOVE ABBY."
Glennon concluded her Facebook post: "I'm so happy. Love Wins."
