However, the marriage could not last long, which later ended in divorce. The couple shares an 18-year-old son Lander Emery Fernandez.
Both his father and grandfather were goalkeepers
Unai's father Juan and grandfather Antonio both were goalkeepers. His grandad played for the Real Union in the 1920s and contributed to winning Copa del Rey in 1924 and 1927.

He started playing football with his feet which later became his career as a left-sided midfielder. There is one more member who is a goalkeeper, and that is his son Lander. His son's first memory of football is with his grandfather as a goalkeeper.
He labeled his ex-girlfriend a white witch
Unai was in a relationship with Sacha Wright until they broke up with one another in September 2019. The couple first met in the summer of 2018.
Sacha confessed to not being aware of his popularity earlier since she did not follow football that much.
The Gaucho steak restaurant at Hampstead, North West London, was their regular meeting place.
She got to know his football obsession when they moved to his beautiful house in Barnet and he started watching games in bed.
Later he slowly started blaming her for every failure while at Arsenal, labeling her a white witch and bringing bad luck in his life.
According to her, he always watched games and checked results and would lie in bed watching games with one game on the computer and the other on the tablet.
She eventually got used to his behavior, but her frustration level slowly rose to a peak when he was not ready to introduce her to his friends and family and would get upset if anyone would try to take pictures of them together.
The relationship, which she thought to be serious, was not serious to him, so she decided to call it a quit.
When Unai was sacked from Arsenal's job, she flew back to Unai, but he blamed her for losing his job.
According to the sources, Unai was dating another woman named Lucila Vila Segui, a bar owner in his native Spain, at the same time with whom he is still together.
