Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle Melton

Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle Melton

Former soccer star Abby Wambach and Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton celebrated Mother's Day with an intimate wedding.

The former USA women's national team star and the blogger and author both shared photos of their wedding day on Instagram. "This tho... @glennondoylemelton", she wrote. "LOVE WINS", Melton wrote in one of her posts. The post included a photo of her and Wambach, 36, dressed in white outfits sporting sunglasses. Life could surprise the hell out of you. Trust me- you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smackdab in the middle of heaven.

The relationship news comes three months after Melton announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton, and two months after Wambach announced that she and her wife of three years, Sarah Huffman, would be divorcing following an April DUI arrest that forced the soccer star to confront her struggles with substance abuse. I love my wife. So loved. And because of all of that love, they are fearless.

Somehow she is still widely referred to as a "Christian mommy blogger", but we're focusing on the happy news today, so I'll choose to sidestep the implications of that wildly narrow label.

While many of Melton's fans on social media celebrated when she announced her engagement to Wambach earlier this year, more conservative Christians like David Hunter, called her a "false prophet" for promoting the gay lifestyle.

Melton said she decided to choose joy.

Melton has been a vocal supporter of LGBT rights, including same-sex marriage.

When I fell in love with Abby, I was scared.

Melton made headlines in November when she revealed that she and Wambach were dating just three months after her divorce from Craig Melton was made public.
