The five-time Ballon d’Or winner with FC Barcelona is expecting third child with wife Antonella Roccuzzo. It has been quite a week for Leo Messi as his hat-trick against Ecuador qualified Argentina for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, despite conceding a goal within a minute mark, the Argentine’s solo efforts in the most crucial game qualified Argentina for the World Cup and now the couple announced they are expecting a third baby.
Barcelona faced Atleti away from home and played a 1-1 draw. Saul opened the score for Rojiblancos inside first-half but Wanda Metropolitano was silenced by the visitors in the late minutes of the game by Luis Suarez, who scored his third goal in La Liga this season, beating Oblak with a header from close range. Messi on the other hand was quite on the field due to back to back games for country and club, coach Ernesto Valverde cleared in post-match conference that he has no intentions to rest Messi against Simeone’s men as they are a tough team to play against.
But it seems like the Argentine cannot stop himself from hitting a hat-trick as wife Antonella Roccuzzo confirmed on Instagram that the couple are expecting another baby with a heartwarming picture of Messi and boys touching her belly, captioned ‘Family of five #blessed’.
The 30-year-old is truly a family man as he dedicates every goal to his grandmother “She took to me to football but now she can’t see how far I have come. Nevertheless, she continues to help me and my family,” Messi revealed a couple of years ago, Messi also has a tattoo of his mother on his left shoulder and even after so many tough matches he always spends time with his family.
With Neymar’s departure Messi’s role has been more central than ever and the little magician is fulfilling the void left behind by Neymar as the Argentine has already scored 11 goals so far this season in La Liga.
All of this in just one week, well It is as special as the kind of player Leo Messi is.
