There are many couples in the world but only few have a love story quite like Messi’s because everyone dreams of having a love story like this. It’s simply a dream for everyone as who doesn’t want to marry someone whom they know and love from childhood and in today’s generation where commitment is so rare. They both stood firm with each other for more than two decades and shows that true love exists.
A Love Story everyone dreams for:
It all started in 1996, when Messi and Lucas Scaglia, the cousin of Antonella and Leo’s friend in the Newell’s Old Boys youth system, began to spend time together in Rosario. Messi saw her for the first time while he and his friend were playing Play station. Right then he knew he wanted to be with her forever. They were in the middle of a game, and the girl who lived upstairs from the Scaglias came to ask if they needed anything. Messi’s friends still joke with him about the silly faces he pulled every time the Antonella came near him.
Antonella would join them, as they would go to the shore of the Parana River. Leo was just nine-years-old, but was already in love with the daughter of the Rosario supermarket chain owners. Messi’s friends said that he would write letters as a kid, stating that one day Antonella would be his wife.
The death of a friend of Anto’s in a traffic accident led to the renewed meeting of Antonella and Messi. According to ‘Infobae’, Messi learned of the tragedy and quickly travelled to Argentina to be at her side. It was then that their relationship progressed, but they chose to keep it private.
It was not until he had turned 21-years-old that the relationship became known. Antonella’s friends say that she revealed her relationship with Messi to them on July 20, 2007. Despite this, the confirmation that the relationship was established happened before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
On June 2, 2012, in a celebration after a goal against Ecuador in the Monumental stadium, an open secret was confirmed: Antonella was pregnant with Thiago, the couple’s first child, born on November 2, 2012. It is evident that the lives of Leo Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo were destined to be one great love story. He always knew that he loved her, and she had the sufficient patience to wait for him.

What will the bride wear?
