Loved-up Italy star Ciro Immobile will be cheered on by wife Jessica Melena as Roberto Mancini's side take on Spain on Tuesday with a chance of reaching the final of Euro 2020.
The prolific Lazio forward, who has scored 123 goals across 177 Serie A appearances for this side since leaving Sevilla back in 2016, found the net twice for his country in the group stages.
Despite failing to score in both their last 16 win over Austria and quarter-final triumph against Belgium, he remains their danger man as they take on the Spanish in the last four.
One supporter who will be more keen than most to see him find the net at Wembley on Tuesday evening, is wife Jessica, with whom the 31-year-old shares three children.
Immobile, who struggled to get game time at Juventus and underperformed at Borussia Dortmund earlier in his career, has found his form back in Italy after tying the knot back in 2014.
Their wedding came after the birth of their first daughter, and was followed by the birth of their second in 2015 and a son in September of 2019.
Jessica regularly updates fans on the life of her family in Instagram, a platform on which she has gained just short of one million followers, one of which is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who played with Ciro at Dortmund.
In one snap that gained almost 200,000 likes, she posed with her husband in front of a view of the sea, and both looked besotted in each other's company.

Immobile said of his wife and family in an interview with Vanity Fair last year: "We have three children and I always get home after them. For me it’s the five minutes at the end of the day.
"I would like my wife to give me a little more time.
"A month after we got engaged, I broke up with her because I wanted to see if she was really the one.
"You know, I had never been seriously with a girl before. After a week it was clear to me that yes, she was the one. Three kids? We agreed on that right away.
"We have some financial stability, a lot of love to give. Why shouldn’t we have them?
"Other family types? If you have to give love to another person, or a child, it’s right to be able to do so. We shouldn’t even talk about different families."
