The world saw Barcelona ace Lionel Messi and childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo’s ‘Wedding of the century’ attended by football stars and there is one person who has hit the headlines.
No, it’s not any footballer or his wag but its Leo’s mother Celia Cuccittini who has grabbed the headline by wearing a white dress just like the bride.|
There are rumours that the two families booked separate entire floors at the luxury hotel complex in Rosario.
As per Argentina’s tradition, it is offensive to wear white at a wedding other than the bride.

After the private civil ceremony, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner and his wife posed on the red carpet for their fans and were surrounded by hundreds of journalists at a hotel and casino complex.
Leo and Antonella met at Rosario when they were five and their friendship continued even when Leo moved to Barcelona.
Football World’s lovely couple looked beautiful as they enjoyed the ceremony and posed on the red carpet. Messi wore a black Armani tuxedo and Antonella the centre of attraction wore a white curve hugging dress designed by Spanish designer Rosa Clara.
The star couple’s children Thiago, four, and Mateo, one, were spotted at the front seats at the ceremony attended by some 260 guests, including Barcelona legends Xavi Hernandez, Carles Puyol, Samuel Eto’o and Messi’s current team-mate Gerard Pique, who came in with his pop star girlfriend Shakira.
Former Barca player and pal Cesc Fabregas also attended the event along with his wife. Manchester City star and Messi’s international team-mate Sergio Aguero was also in attendance.
The two other members of the incredible Barca attacking triumvirate – Luis Suarez and Neymar also attended the wedding ceremony.
As per Daily Mail, Leo and Antonella’s relationship has been under strain for nearly 7 years. But the families settled their differences for the wedding.
