Best-selling author and mommy blogger Glennon Doyle Melton, who is known for blogging about her Christian beliefs, parenting, divorce and addiction, announced in an emotional coming out post yesterday that she is dating two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA Women's World Cup champion Abby Wambach. Damn, talk about a power couple.

"Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now," wrote Melton in a lengthy Facebook post, which she also shared on Instagram. “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." She also described her girlfriend as "deeply sensitive and kind," "mushy and sweet," and "brave...not just with her words but with her entire being."

There is a lot more love (and a lot more words) in the post, which you can read in its entirety here:

It seems like the internet really did need some positive news, because the post has been shared over a thousand times and received thousands of supportive comments.

Melton, 40, is the author of New York Times bestseller Love Warrior, who announced her divorce from her ex-husband a few months ago. Wambach, 36, announced her divorce from ex-wife Sarah Huffman in September.

Here's another pic of them from Instagram, in case you still doubt their love:

[[[LOVE WINS PART TWO, CONTINUED FROM PART ONE]]] How are we supposed to FEEL about this? My loves, here is the good news: You are allowed to think and feel WHATEVER YOU NEED OR WANT TO FEEL! Come close--because I need to explain this part well: It has been my job for so long as a leader in this community to care deeply about what you think and feel about me and the way I live my life. I have cared so much, for so long. It has been a great honor. Now we are entering a new time which calls for a different type of leadership. And now it is my job as a leader not to concern myself too deeply about what you think and feel about me- about the way I live my life. That is what I want to model now, because that is what I want for YOU: I want you to grow so comfortable in your own being, your own skin, your own knowing - that you become more interested in your own joy and freedom and integrity than in what others think about you. I want you to refuse to betray yourself. Not just for you. For ALL OF US. Because what the world needs -- in order to grow, in order to relax, in order to find peace, in order to become brave -- is to watch one woman at a time live her truth without asking for permission or offering explanation. The most revolutionary thing a woman can do is not explain herself. What I need you to know- and what I know you need to know- is that I am deeply, finally, FINE. Fine through my bones and soul and mind and just every fiber of me. You have the room to feel and react with your truth….because I am so unshakably certain inside of mine. 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. Love Wins. G
