Lionel Messi is one of Argentina’s best imports in soccer, he is the star of FC Barcelona, but this gifted and handsome boy has someone to share his victories and majestic life with….and no with his mother or dog,but with his Argentinean girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo. Let’s get to know this lucky girl.
Antonella is 22 years old, she was born in Lionel’s hometown of Rosario, Argentina, where she was studying Nutrition.Now she is living in Barcelona with her boyfriend, so she is now studying there.
You might wonder how these two love birds met, was it at school? Did they live in the same neighborhood? Well, they did meet since they were just five years old, she is Lionel’s best friend,so they basically grew up together,it was confirmed by him in an interview.
“I know Antonella since we were five years old, she is my best friend’s cousin, from Rosario like myself. I have seen her grow up just like she has seen me grow up, our families know each other, so I never had any doubts” Said Lionel.
But how did this whole started? Well as you know Lionel moved from Argentina when he was very young because of his growth problem, but he always tried to fly back to Rosario for the holly days and so it was on Christmas vacation in 2009, when they reconnected and fell for each other.
Although they tried to keep a low profile, in Latin magazines it showed pictures of them taking long walks with their dog at the beach, but then when they were spotted together at a Sitges Carnival and then the world revealed news about the new romance, but they managed to keep it quiet for almost a year or so.
“It’s already one year that my girlfriend is with me and until now nobody knew about it. Well, people saw us together but they thought it was something normal. I didn’t know that there would be paparazzi at the Sitges carnival. If we wouldn’t have gone there, people still wouldn’t have known anything. But it doesn’t matter.”said Messi
Then we saw even more pictures of Antonella when she flew along with her in laws to Madrid, then it was rumored that they were getting married in February, which they didn’t and now rumors said that they will get married by the end of the year.
Well they still haven’t get married, but they still are madly in love.
