One of the best football players in the world and seven times Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi, is fighting for the World Cup together with the Argentina national team. His beautiful wife Antonella Roccuzzo will be there to support him and cheer him on from the stands.
How did Antonella Support her Husband before his World Cup Start?
Sadly, this World Cup will be the last one for Lionel Messi, as it is for Ronaldo. An entire era is coming to an end. And that means this is the Argentine’s last chance to conquer yet another peak, the World Cup. This year Messi has all the chances to win the World Cup. Argentina is one of the main favorites for the tournament along with Brazil and Germany.
At this pivotal point in his life, Messi will have his beautiful wife, Antonella Roccuzzo, by his side. On Nov. 21, she posted an Instagram story from a plane with Luis Suárez’s wife, Sofia Balbi, heading to Qatar. The children apparently had to be left at home.

And just two days ago, Antonella posted a cute photo of her three sons (Thiago, Mateo and Ciro) dressed up in Argentine national team kits to support their dad before the World Cup. The next generation of talented soccer players is growing up!

Love since Childhood
Antonella was born February 26, 1988 in the Argentine city of Rosario in the family of a worker and a housewife. She has two siblings, Carlo and Paula.
Antonella knew her future husband since she was young. Roccuzzo’s and Messi’s families were friends, and the girl’s cousin is a close friend of Lionel.
One day Lucas invited Leo to play console games. That was when he first met the beautiful dark-haired, tanned girl with brown eyes.
The children lived next door and dated until they were 13. Leo wrote love notes to his Antonella and saw her home. However, because of Messi’s illness (growth hormone deficiency), his father decided to move his son to Barcelona.

After the move, communication between the young people died down. Antonella was even going to marry another man. But fate disposed otherwise.
In 2007, a close friend of Antonella died in a terrible accident. At this time, Messi came to visit his hometown. Upon learning of Antonella’s grief, Leo decided to support her. This meeting became fateful – the former feelings flared up with renewed vigor. Roccuzzo left her fiancé for Messi before their wedding. The young people never parted again.
In June 2017, Leo and Antonella got married. There were 260 guests at the wedding in Rosario, including famous football players: Gerard Piqué and his wife singer Shakira, Neymar and Luis Suárez. Local publications called the Messi family celebration “the wedding of the century”.

The couple has three sons – Thiago, Mateo and Ciro. One of the boys will definitely follow in their father’s footsteps and become a famous football player.
Antonella is a nutritionist by degree. She also worked in a fitness center for a long time. Along with her work in the gym, she also worked as a part-time model. Thankfully her perfect body and a pretty face made that possible.
Antonella collaborated with fashion brands from Spain. Together with Sofia Balbi (wife of Luis Suárez) Roccuzzo launched her own shoe brand.

Antonella also runs a blog on Instagram. She has 16.7 million followers on her account. The girl publishes beautiful travel photos, football matches and cute family photos.
Roccuzzo not only has time to take care of her children, but also her shape. So you can see photos and videos from workouts on her blog. This is great motivation for her followers!

Antonella has had a positive effect on Leo’s mental state and personality. He became calmer and more confident. The girl has always accompanied him to Barcelona matches – at first she was alone, and then her sons joined her. Now Roccuzzo will attend matches of PSG.
Outside the football field, Leo and Antonella spend all their free time together. The couple often travel, celebrate holidays and go out with their close friends.
Perhaps Lionel Messi will really succeed in winning the World Cup. After Argentina’s success at the America’s Cup in 2021, it’s time to win the one missing trophy in his collection – the World Cup.
