The couple has known each other since they were five. The lady was a cousin of one of his friends in the neighborhood. There was a break in the love story of the couple as Leo went on to live and develop at FC Barcelona aged 13. After some of the rumors of the Argentine’s relations with other women, the couple officially announced being together in 2010. Since then, Messi and Antonella have two sons together, named Thiago Messi and Mateo Messi.
