Jurgen Klopp's wife Ulla has been sporting Liverpool red ahead of their FA Cup final clash against Chelsea weeks after convincing her husband to sign a contract extension at Anfield until 2026.
Ulla, who was fondly dubbed 'First Lady of the Bundesliga' during Klopp's success with Borussia Dortmund, has lived a private personal life following a series of selfless working roles.
On Friday (May 13), Ulla was spotted heading to a beauty salon ahead of what could be a nervy Saturday for Liverpool as they go in search of a second Wembley triumph over Thomas Tuchel's men this season following League Cup glory in February.
Having been married to Sabine, with whom he shares son Marc, Klopp married children's writer Ulla Sandrock during his time as Mainz 05 manager in 2005.
The pair met during an Oktoberfest celebration earlier in the year, and formed a family with her son Dennis from a previous relationship.
Klopp said last month after his new Liverpool contract was announced: "As a good husband, what do you do when your wife wants to stay? You stay. And now we do this because Ulla wants to stay!"

Klopp even revealed in a 2015 interview that it took them very little time to get close, telling Freundin: "I knew at first glance with Ulla: That's her! Three days later I stood in front of her door with my gym bag and moved in."
Adding: "When Ulla and I lived in Mainz, we had the best living concept ever: We had bought a house in which only friends of ours lived. It was a three-storey flat share with open doors.
"We often came home in the evening after training and there were 15 people sitting in our living room. Total fun! Unfortunately, we only lived there for a year and a half."
Ulla spent time working as a teacher at a German school in Nairobi before heading back to Europe, also working as a nurse to treat local children.
Her two works as an author follow a young boy from Mainz who finds a magical football in his attic, which turns him into a superstar player.
Klopp once said of the books: "It's like Harry Potter but about football."
The Champions League and Premier League winning boss has also said of their love: "Ulla and I have a happy, incredibly harmonious relationship."
