Glennon Doyle is coming out again — this time as a "home-sexual."

The best-selling author and podcast host was thrilled to share that she and her wife, retired soccer champion and fellow author Abby Wambach, are the "first queer women" pictured in an issue of Architectural Digest — in bed.

“It feels good and important to put these images out into the world in this moment,” Doyle wrote on Instagram alongside photos from the shoot. “As you likely know, I'm obsessed with home. Home is my favorite. I identify as home-sexual. So, it was kind of intimidating to invite the world into my safe, happy place. I’m glad we did though.”

The post, which was tagged #Pride to commemorate LGBTQ Pride month in June, was widely praised by some of Hollywood’s biggest names.

“That’s dope, girls!” Chelsea Handler wrote.

Gwyneth Paltrow added, “So beautiful. Can I snuggle in there with you guys??”

“Love your kitchen cabinets! (And everything else!),” Katie Couric commented, while Jennifer Garner chimed in with: “Beautiful xxx.”

The happy couple relocated to California from Florida last year, as noted in the AD story, which was published last month. Though moving across the country can be daunting, Doyle said it actually brought them closer together.

“There were a lot of moments that I felt like I was falling deeper and deeper in love with Abby, and one of them is when she had had her books shipped from Portland,” Doyle said. “For some reason, I was alone and opening her boxes, and I was so scared. Like, if I look at your bookshelf, and it doesn’t have the right books that are important, I will have a real problem. I opened her books, one by one, and they were all the books that I love, all the books that I had. That was a really big moment.”

Doyle, a proud momma of three kids — Chase, 19, Tish, 16, and Amma, 14 — has never been shy about sharing her true self with her fans.

Late last year, the author made headlines when she decided to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show without makeup, an experience she later chronicled on Instagram.

“I’ve always wanted to go on tv without makeup,” she wrote before clarifying, “I don't think makeup is bad, but something about wearing a lot of it on TV makes me feel bad.”

“So many people watch TV,” she continued. “So we're just constantly taking in all these images of... enhanced faces. And then we look in the mirror and believe that OUR faces need enhancing. That WE are somehow all wrong or not good enough. It happens to me, and I don't want to do it to anybody else. But I always DO IT anyway. 'Cause I get to the TV thing, and I get scared, and they say: 'Are you ready for makeup?' And I say: 'YES PLEASE ALL OF IT.'”
