Last week, Melton had posted a kissy-face picture of herself with Wambach, writing, "And then one day it all makes sense. Every bit of it. And you can finally see your past as one long, blessed road leading you home. And you understand that every bit of it was necessary and that every bit of it was holy. Thank you for being my home @abbywambach . I love us."
The engagement news comes three months after Melton announced to her readers that she had fallen in love with Wambach. That announcement followed within months of Melton's marriage to Craig Melton ending, and Wambach's marriage to Sarah Huffman also coming to an end.
Wambach, who had faced an April 2016 DUI arrest, is a two-time Olympic gold medalist who played her last game in December 2015.
