According to various sources, Esther is 11 years younger than Palou. The Spanish beauty has been in a relationship with him since he was merely 17 years old.

The remarkable bond and the support they offer each other make Palou and Valle a couple goals. It is not known when the couple got married. However, in various interviews, Palou has mentioned Esther as his wife. 

Palou and Valle both are coffee enthusiasts. While enjoying their vacation in Girona, Spain, they noticed a noticeable gap in the market for stylish and contemporary cafes.

As a result, they embarked on a joint venture, becoming the proud owners and managers of a coffee shop called “Coffee & Greens” for the past three years.

Throughout this time, Valle has taken charge of the daily operations while Palou dedicated himself to his racing career. However, in 2022, Palou experienced a remarkable surge in his professional journey.

Recognizing this potential, Valle made a bold decision during IndyCar’s summer break: she packed up their belongings in Spain and permanently relocated them to Indiana.

This move allowed Palou to fully embrace his racing aspirations while supported by Valle’s unwavering commitment.

The couple share a lovely bond. Palou’s inclination to share every detail of his experiences with his wife is genuinely endearing.

In an interview about his venture into driving an F1 car, he expressed his experience. Further, in that interview, he stated that he couldn’t contain his excitement and immediately shared his whole experience with his wife. 

Valle stands as a pillar of support for Palou. On May 21, 2023, an exhilarating moment unfolded as Alex Palou secured his first-ever pole position in the prestigious Indy 500.

Overwhelmed with joy and achievement, he embraced his wife in a heartfelt hug to share the triumph.
