"My beloveds- please never give up on love," Melton wrote to followers. "Life could surprise the hell out of you. Trust me- you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smackdab in the middle of heaven. I love my wife. LOVE WINS."


Of course, Melton's big marriage shocker comes just nine months after she announced her divorce from husband Craig Melton. The couple shares three children together, Chase, Tish and Amma.

Meanwhile, three months after Melton's split, Wambach announced her divorce from wife of three years Sarah Huffman. Last April, Wambach's DUI arrest also inspired the star to address her issues with substance abuse.

Wammbach and Melton announced their engagement in February.
