Her husband’s ex-wife passed away at the age of 63 following a long-term illness

Her husband’s ex-wife Luisa Gibellini passed away in May 2021 at 63 following her long-term illness. 

After hearing the deteriorating health condition of his ex-wife, Ancelotti flew back to his native to be with his ex-wife during her last hour. 

Gibellini was his childhood sweetheart and was together for more than two decades before splitting in 2008

Luisa was interested in sports, specifically football, softball, and tennis, according to the sources. 

She used to accompany her husband Ancelotti back home after Parma matches while he was in charge of the Series A club.

She is outspoken and once labeled referees as a disgrace

Barrena has been the supporting pillar to her husband Ancelotti and is seen accompanying her husband in the matches and events. 

She never fears speaking her heart and once labeled referees a disgrace. 

While Ancelotti was in charge of Bayern Munich in 2017, the 4-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals led to controversy after then Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal was firmly sent off for two bookable offenses before then Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo scored from an offside position in an extra time. 

In his post-match interview, Ancelotti was critical of the referee, saying the need for a referee with more quality in the game or to put the video referee because of too many errors. 

He went on to say that he was not saying that they would have gone with a different referee, but the referee had a bad game. It would have been a different game with video replays. 

Amid that, Barrena also put her word forward. She took her Instagram and wrote,

”As it is now unanimous, I too will speak the truth! The refereeing during last night’s game was a disgrace”. 

This should not have happened at this level of this beautiful game. She further wrote that they deserved much more. 

It is time to bring in video technology so that this game goes down in history as an example of what should never happen again.

Her hubby answered interesting questions from his fans

He lived there until he was fifteen and then headed to another place to attend college and play football. 

He explained that where he grew up, Reggiolo only consisted of ten thousand people as it is a small village, and most of them were farmers. 

Coming to next, the question goes by if Carlo was a cheese farmer, to which he responded by saying that his dad was a farmer and the most important part for him was to give food to the cows, and cows would give milk to make the cheese and pointed that his dad was a true farmer. 

Also, he giggles and says that after retiring from football, he could go back and be involved in cheese making. Well, then Carlo also admitted that he is a good chef.

So, Carlo learned so many things from him and then said that his favorite pasta is Carbonara

Carlo then revealed the languages he knows, where he said that he knew English, Italian, good Spanish, and French and he claimed German was the most difficult one among all. 

Carlo also shared that the tougher part with different languages is when one has to show their emotions. He claims that it is tougher to show your emotions in numerous languages. 

Also, Carlo revealed that to show his emotions, like when he's upset or angry, he speaks in Italian with his players, and his players know that he is angry.
