Score for Abby Wambach! The soccer superstar who helped take the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup just announced her engagement to her sweetheart, Christian mom blogger Glennon Doyle Melton.

While Wambach may be more accustomed to soccer goals, it looks like the woman is now bona fide #relationshipgoals! The blogger behind the website Momastery was the first to break the nupital news, taking to social media to post a black-and-white snapshot of herself holding hands with Wambach—with both of them rocking some super sparkly rings! "Abby and I decided to hold hands forever," Melton captioned the photo on Instagram. "First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach."

Wambach soon shared the same snapshot on her own Instagram page, simply writing, "Happy. #iseethemoonnow." Aww! Quit it with the cuteness, you guys!

This will be both Wambach and Melton's second marriages. Wambach was previously married to Sarah Huffman (whom she famously smooched during her 2015 World Cup victory). Wambach and Huffman split last year, around the same time Melton and her husband of 14 years also called it quits.

Then in November 2016, the couple officially took their relationship public with Melton writing a long, heartfelt social media post. "Feels like the world could use all the love it can get right now," began Melton. "So today, I’m going to share with you my new love. Her name is Abby. You might recognize her from soccer. She was one of the best players of all time, and she has been a fierce and committed advocate for women's equality for a decade. And honestly? Those are the least impressive things about her."

Melton went on to write the sweetest things about her honey, closing the post with, "What I'm trying to say is, PRECIOUS WORLD: I LOVE ABBY."

And in case there was any question about that, both women now have the engagement bling to prove it! Congrats, you two!
