Lionel Messi 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Since 2008, Messi has been in a relationship with Antonella Roccuzzo, a fellow native of Rosario.
He has known Roccuzzo since he was five years old, as she is the cousin of his childhood best friend, Lucas Scaglia, who is also a football player.
After keeping their relationship private for a year, Messi first confirmed their romance in an interview in January 2009, before going public a month later during a carnival in Sitges after the Barcelona–Espanyol derby.
“Leo is not shy. He’s introverted. He’s reserved.”
– Endocrinologist Dr. Diego Schwarzstein addressed Messi’s growth hormone deficiency from 1997 to 2001.
According to Bleacher Report’s Richard Fitzpatrick, “Schwarzstein and Messi built up a close relationship during more than four years of treatment.”
Messi and Roccuzzo have three sons: Thiago (born 2012), Mateo (born 2015) and Ciro (born 2018).
To celebrate his partner’s first pregnancy, Messi placed the ball under his shirt after scoring in Argentina’s 4–0 win against Ecuador on 2 June 2012, before confirming the pregnancy in an interview two weeks later.
Thiago was born in Barcelona on 2 November 2012, with Messi attending the birth after being given permission by Barcelona to miss training.
He announced his son’s arrival on his Facebook page, writing, “Today I am the happiest man in the world, my son was born and thanks to God for this gift!”
Thiago’s name and handprints are tattooed on his left calf.
In April 2015, Messi confirmed on Facebook that they were expecting another child.
He missed training ahead of a match against Atlético Madrid to attend the birth of his second son, Mateo, on 11 September 2015 in Barcelona.
On 30 June 2017, he married Roccuzzo at a luxury hotel named Hotel City Center in Rosario with about 260 guests attending his wedding.
On 15 October 2017, his wife announced they were expecting their third child in an Instagram post, with the words “Family of 5”.
On 10 March 2018, Messi skipped the match against Málaga after Ciro was born.
Messi enjoys a close relationship with his immediate family members, particularly his mother, Celia, whose face he has tattooed on his left shoulder.
His professional affairs are largely run as a family business: his father, Jorge, has been his agent since he was 14, and his oldest brother, Rodrigo, handles his daily schedule and publicity.
His mother and other brother, Matías, manage his charitable organization, the Leo Messi Foundation, and take care of personal and professional matters in Rosario.
Since leaving for Spain at age 13, Messi has maintained close ties to his hometown of Rosario, even preserving his distinct Rosarino accent.
He has kept ownership of his family’s old house, although it has long stood empty; he maintains a penthouse apartment in an exclusive residential building for his mother, as well as a family compound just outside the city.
Once when he was in training with the national team in Buenos Aires, he made a three-hour trip by car to Rosario immediately after practice to have dinner with his family, spent the night with them, and returned to Buenos Aires the next day in time for practice.
Messi keeps in daily contact via phone and text with a small group of confidants in Rosario, most of whom were fellow members of “The Machine of ’87” at Newell’s Old Boys.
He currently lives in Castelldefels, a village near Barcelona.
Although considered a one-club man, he has long planned to return to Rosario to end his playing career at Newell’s.
