On their 10th anniversary, Valentina wrote a beautiful message on Instagram which said:

“Ten years
Ten years of you
Ten years of life
Ten years that seem to have flown
Ten years sharing everything
Ten years to feel loved as I am
Ten years to love you more and more
Ten years and I feel lucky
Ten years to be proud of you
Ten years since the most beautiful day.”

It is known that their eldest child is called Tommaso and their daughters name is Emma.

Valentina used to travel to the tournaments with her husband but since having children, she no longer attends the tour.
