Andrea Pirlo married Deborah Roversi in 2001. They had two children together, son Niccolo and daughter Angela. Pirlo wrote an autobiography in 2013-2014 called Penso Quindi Gioco (I Think, Therefore I Play). Also in 2014, Roversi and Pirlo divorced. Once the divorce was final, there was quite the scandal when it was reported that Pirlo had been having an affair with Valentina Baldini, a real estate agent and former partner of one of the Juventus owners’ sons (Richard Crande Stevens). Aside from his marriage woes, Pirlo seems to be doing well for himself. His father founded a metal trading company in 1982 called Elg Steel that is doing pretty well for itself. Pirlo has a stake in this family business. He has a great passion for wine and even owns his own vineyard in the hills above Brescia called Pratum Coller Vineyard (which means meadow hill in Latin). He plans to work more with wine after retirement.
