When the world christened the little magic dribbler with the growth disorder (barely 1.40 meters as a 13-year-old) “flea”, his feelings for HER were huge…
Having triumphed at his fifth (and final) World Cup, Argentina’s national hero Lionel Messi (35, now 1.69m – thanks to growth hormones) is now a titan.
With a heart of gold!
In the winter of his world career, he still burns for the woman he promised love to as a pale teenager.
In 2000, Messi wrote to his Antonela (34): “One day we will be a couple.” And he should keep his word. They became a couple. scandal free. Happy.
In 2007 they became. Yes word 2017. Three sons together: Thiago (10), Mateo (7) and Ciro (4). A happy family like in a picture book.
A little “Romeo and Juliet” with the Italian-born families. The model’s clan (25 million Instagram fans) and Messi’s relatives are considered enemies.
At Messi’s mega wedding in a casino, his mother Celia (62) appeared in the bridal color white! That’s actually not possible. But it worked here too.
And when she won the World Cup, she was the first to wish her well. She even took over his love of tattoos (18 pieces, including a portrait of Mama) from him.
Messi, the family man.
Despite an XL bank account (estimated at 600 million euros), luxury real estate (including Barcelona, Ibiza, Argentina) and jet set life (private plane, charter yacht), time with loved ones is his most precious asset. He also loves and lives with his family away from the football field.
Messi: “Of course I love football and live for it, but my family is above everything for me!”
Now he has achieved everything. Lionel Messi is world champion. After all the trophies and triumphs that the superstar has already collected over the past few years, he has finally achieved a big goal. He made himself, a whole nation, and his family really happy. This is how little Lionel has become a great world champion of hearts.
