We love hearing real-life love stories that trump hate and crush stereotypes, and Cosmo just let us know that a popular Cristian author revealed she’s dating Abby Wambach. As in Abby Wambach the soccer legend who is hanging up her cleats at the end of this year (she deserves some time off after a stellar career!) and who inspired a barbie doll because she’s such a total badass on the field.

You might have heard that Wambach is recently divorced from Sarah Huffman, and we’re happy to hear about her flourishing relationship with Glennon Doyle Melton, the writer behind the empowering Momastery blog and other projects. Melton also recently divorced from her husband.

Melton actually announced her new relationship on Instagram with a lengthy and emotional post all about Abby.

Awwwwww! So what are the most impressive things?

Awwwwwww! She goes on to talk about her ex-husband Craig and their kids, and how everyone supports her relationship. The post was so long that it needed a “part two,” which was all about how the world needs to accept women as they are.

Soooooo much YES to this right now. Congratulations to the happy couple!
