Melton posted a photograph to Instagram this weekend, showing two hands with rings.
The photo was captioned: ‘Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.’
Wambach later posted the same photograph on Instagram. She included the caption: ‘Happy. #iseethemoonnow.’
Wambach is currently in the process of divorcing fellow soccer star Sarah Huffman.
Melton has divorced from her husband of 14 years, and she says her ex-husband supports her relationship with Wambach and that they make a ‘beautiful, modern family’ together.
Melton wrote on Facebook that her children also loved the soccer star, branding her ‘an M&M because she looks tough on the outside but inside she’s really mushy and sweet.
‘They’re lucky kids, to be surrounded by so much love. We have family dinners together — all six of us — and Abby cooks.
‘We go to the kids’ school parties together. We are a modern, beautiful family. Our children are loved. So loved. And because of all of that love, they are brave.’
Melton’s book Love Warrior was featured in Oprah’s Book Club
