Morata’s wife is a model and fashionista with over 2.5m Instagram followers

Former Chelsea hitman, Alvaro Morata, will face a tough challenge when his Spanish side takes on Italy in the semi-finals of Euro 2020 on Tuesday evening.

Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are two defenders from a bygone era – where defending was the order of the day, and ball-playing abilities took a backseat.

And, Alvaro Morata, who has struggled to find the net at this summer's Euros, will have to be at the top of his game to score.

However, there will be one fan with ultimate belief in the striker, his wife, Alice Campello-Morata – a stunning model with over a 2.5million Instagram followers.

Campello will have spilt loyalties heading into Tuesday evening, as the stunning bombshell was born in Venice, Italy, and her husband is Spain's marksman.

The Italian stunner is a model, and social media influencer, however, she has found most of her success in the fashion industry – where she has her own line of handbags.

She often delights her fans by uploading saucy snaps to her social media pages, where she has millions of followers.

And, once upon a time, one of those followers was Alvaro Morata – who, after failing to find any mutual friends – slid into Campello's DMs.

"He had seen a picture of me and asked many people if they knew me, to introduce us, but we had no friends in common.

"So he wrote to me (on Instagram). I answered him after a long time and, in the end, we met.

"When I met him, he struck me because I immediately knew he was very serious.

"For example, two weeks after our first date, he drove eight hours to meet my family, and returned to Turin very late, even though he had to train early the next day."

And, it was love at first sight for the pair.

Morata was smitten, and just eight months after the pair started dating, Morata popped the question: "His friends and family had never seen him like this and he kept telling me he wanted to marry me: in the end, he asked me eight months after we started dating."

The pair now have been together for five years, and they have three children together.

They were married in June, in a ceremony in Campello's native Venice – with players such as Isco and Simone Zaza in attendance.

Morata has featured in all five of Spain's Euro 2020 fixtures.

And, he has two goals to his name with strikes against Poland and Croatia.
