Wambach hit headlines earlier this year for her DUI and memoir detailing her struggle with alcohol and prescription pills.
A Christian mommy blogger has announced she is dating retired soccer star Abby Wambach.
Glennon Doyle Melton posted a smiling picture of herself and Wambach on Sunday, with the caption: ‘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.’
Both are newly single.
Wambach, who lost her sponsors after a DUI last April, is currently in the process of divorcing fellow soccer star, and wife of three years, Sarah Huffman. While Melton announced her divorce from Craig Melton, her husband of 14 years, in August.
The relationship may come as something of a surprise for fans of the Christian author – whose book Love Warrior was featured in Oprah’s Book Club.
But regular readers of her blog Momastery won’t be surprised by her openness about the new relationship.
Melton, a mother-of-three, is known as the ultimate confessional writer, for her honest portrayals of her struggling marriage, addiction and eating disorder, according to the Washington Post.
She has also been a champion of LGBT rights, and insists that same-sex marriage is not contrary to the church.
Since coming out about her first gay relationship, some fellow Christian bloggers have offered their support on her Facebook post.
She issued a statement on Facebook after she was released from jail the next morning, taking full responsibility for her actions and apologizing to her friends, family and fans.
In the aftermath, the car company MINI USA withdrew her from its heavily promoted advertising campaign, which also starred tennis great Serena Williams.
Melton’s news comes just two months after her friend Elizabeth Gilbert, of Eat, Pray, Love fame, also announced her lesbian relationship.
Gilbert, whose book about her struggle to find herself, announced in September she was in a romantic relationship with her female best friend, just two months after divorcing over the summer.
Both Gilbert and Melton share a spiritual influence on their writing and much more – a coveted place on the Oprah Book Club list.
