We present predictions for diboson production (with exact decays) that are next-to-next-to-leading order (NNLO) accurate and consistently matched to a parton shower (NNLOPS). The matching is achieved by upgrading the NLO WW+j calculation with MiNLO, in such a way that NLO accuracy is guaranteed for W+W- inclusive observables and by then performing a reweighting of the WWJ-MiNLO events, differential in the W+W- Born variables, to the NNLO results obtained with Matrix.
