Antonela Roccuzzo and Lionel Messi‘s love story is one that spans decades. From childhood friends to married with three children, this power couple has faced challenges together and come out on top.
A Love Story Through the Years
Their journey began as kids in their hometown of Rosario, Argentina. They were both part of the same group of friends, but it wasn’t until tragedy struck that they reconnected.
In 2005, Roccuzzo’s best friend passed away in a car accident. When Messi learned the news while training in Spain, he immediately flew back to Argentina to comfort his future wife.
After reconnecting through their shared grief, sparks began to fly between them.
Despite the long distance separating them later on when Messi moved abroad for his soccer career, their connection only grew more robust over time.
Eventually, they welcomed two sons before tying the knot in a wedding dubbed “the wedding of the century” by media outlets around the globe. The following year they brought about another joyous addition – their third son.
Personal qualities admired by all
Messi has spoken highly of his wife’s admirable qualities on several occasions throughout the years. He admires her intelligence and well-roundedness in every aspect of life.
Her positivity always shines through as she tackles problems with grace and purpose – something he greatly appreciates about her personality.
Super supportive spouse
In addition to being an encouraging force behind closed doors at home during potentially tough times, such as major games coming up, Antonella is known for always showing up when her husband needs support the most during work-related events.
This includes soccer matches or meetings for endorsements/partnerships, etc.
She often documents these experiences via social media for fans who cannot be there themselves or for those wanting glimpses into what goes on beyond the scoreboards too!
Modeling Career And Businesswoman Extraordinaire
When not supporting her husband’s successful career, Roccuzzo has carved out an impressive path of her own.
In November 2016, she signed a modeling contract with designer Ricky Sarkany and would also venture into business with soccer wife Sofia Balbi to open up Barcelona‘s boutique for Argentinean footwear brand Sarkany.
Fitness company Adidas has also worked with Antonela in the past as well as high-profile designer Stella McCartney – all very impressive growth from the early years.
Roccuzzo is one of the most followed people onInstagramdespite not having Twitter or Facebook accounts evident proof that her influence and reach extend far beyond niche borders.
With over 36 million followers on Instagram alone at press time, there is no shortage of exciting content showcasing moments both big, like their World Cup win, and more ordinary ones like family get-togethers, etc. Everything’s here!
A Proud Mama To Three Boys
Arguably one of Antonela Roccuzzo’s best roles in life is being a mom! She shares three kids with Messi – Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro who are often decked out in matching jerseys cheering him on during games too.
Messi says becoming a dad transformed his entire outlook on life: “You gather experience in all aspects of life, but as human beings, we change our way of thinking, especially when it comes down to growing and fostering these tiny humans.”
Messi Won The FIFA World Cup
Antonella Roccuzzo had front-row seats to witness history unfold on December 13th when Lionel Messi led Argentina to victory against France at the FIFA World Cup final.
Thousands celebrated around them, along with their trio of kids dressed impeccably alike, joining field-side hugging scenes immediately after the game ended.
Even though it meant much security taking care not only of players but everyone present apart too!
Miami Welcomes And Embraces The Couple
July 2023 marks a new chapter in the couple’s life in Miami! Lionel Messi recently joined Major League Soccer team Inter MiamiCF alongside co-owner and legendary soccer icon David Beckham.
The family of five appears to be settling into their new life well, as pictures on IG show them basking by the poolside, relaxing together.
Victoria Beckham herself welcomed them with open arms, posting snaps from an exciting event honoring newcomer faces like theirs.
