The love story of Abby Wambach and Glennon Doyle will captivate you

What she didn’t disclose at the time was that she was already newly in love with Momastery blogger Glennon Doyle.

Doyle is no stranger to overcoming personal problems. She battled bulimia at a young age and drank and used drugs in college. She finally decided to get sober in 2002 when she became pregnant with her first child. (When she found out she was pregnant, she married her now-ex-husband because “I thought it was the right thing,” she told

“I had never kissed a girl, so I had no context for what was going to happen to me,” Doyle revealed on MamaMia’s No Filter podcast in May 2020. “But when Abby entered the room, I’ll tell you, that’s how it was [inner] voice I had practiced hearing and trusting [after my separation] just screamed. My whole self was like ‘there she is’ and I just knew it.”

They started corresponding about a month later, Doyle recalled, and a month later “I sat down with Craig and said, ‘It’s over. I’m in love.’ By the way, Abby and I had never seen each other outside of this room. We spent 10 minutes together and then decomposed our entire lives to be together.”

Wambach recalled to the New York Times, “We couldn’t have been a better match. Glennon had a husband and three children and lived in Naples, Florida. I had been sober for a month, my marriage was failing, besides, I had just finished my 30-year football career and was living in Portland, Ore.”
