Lionel Messi’s Wife, Son, Girlfriend And Family

He is no doubt one of the most private athletes in the world and also one of the best. Football lovers and people who are rather indifferent about the sport have no choice but to know his name, despite this the athlete has managed to keep his person life on the down low. We are going to try our best to dig up all you need to know about his family, which he holds very dear.

Lionel Messi’s Wife/Girlfriend

We decided to merge the two topics because, believe it or not, they are one and the same person. You may have googled ‘Lionel Messi’s Wife’ a couple of times, well folks the football player is not married. Before you let out that sigh of relief, he has a long term girlfriend, Antonella Roccuzzo and the two are from Rosario, Argentina, a lower-middle class city about 185 miles north-west of Buenos Aires, they have been together since 2008.

Lionel has known the Argentinian beauty since he was five years old; she is cousins with his childhood best friend, Lucas Scaglia . Having a fine cousin must have been one of the binding factors of their friendship, because Messi admitted that  he was interested in Antonella from the minute he saw her and whenever she was there, he would look for excuses to go to his best friend’s house.

The 28 year old went to the Universidad Nacional de Rosario, where she began studying nutrition, but then went on to read Social Communication studies and more recently, she was studying English. No media person has had the opportunity to have a one-on-one with Antonella, as she is the shy type. No doubt, she also aims to keep her personal life personal.

You would think that she is a die hard football fan, but the opposite is the case. She has no interest in the sport, her boyfriend admitted that he does not watch football at home, in relation to this he also said, ‘I go home, I say that I have scored two or three goals and she doesn’t hear me. And I go watch cartoons with Thiago, and she laughs a lot.’ She’s giving you a breath of fresh air, Lionel.

So the next time you hear the words ‘Lionel Messi’s wife’, you will undoubtedly know who they are referring to. The couple have two sons together, but that’s an issue for another sub topic.

Lionel Messi’s Sons

The football player has two sons with his childhood sweetheart and present girlfriend, Antonella. Their first son, Thiago was born on November 2, 2012. Lionel is obviously devoted to his family and displays it proudly, when they were expecting their first baby, Messi placed the ball under his t-shirt during a match against Ecuador as a tribute to his wife and unborn child. Also, he has quite the collection of tattoos on his body with Thiago’s name and hand-prints inked on his left calf.

Three years later, Lionel took to Facebook to announce the arrival of baby number 2, Mateo, who was born on September 15, 2015. Messi was not ready to miss the birth of his second son, as such he took permission from ‘Barcelona’ to miss training.  Later on, via Facebook post, he announced Mateo’s birth writing, ‘Today I am the happiest man in the world, my son was born and thanks to God for this gift!’

Recently, in June the football player was shaken by his team’s failure and as a result, he announced his retirement from international football. Many hearts were broken and hopes were dashed as millions of Argentinians hoped he would lead the team to glory during the 2018 World Cup.

There are two Argentinians who don’t mind at all though, because this means they get to spend a lot more time with daddy.

Lionel Messi’s Family

Messi is undoubtedly a family man, apart from the family he has built with Antonella, he values his parents and siblings, constantly keeping them close. He proved to us that he is a ‘Momma’s boy’, when he tattooed his mother’s face on his left shoulder. His mother, Celia, alongside his brother, Matias are in charge of his NGO, the Leo Messi Foundation.
