Lionel Messi To Be A Dad

Congratulations are in order for Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo!

The football star and his girlfriend are expecting their first child.  “I know it’s going to be a boy,” said Messi, 24, who is dubbed as the world’s best football player.

“I didn’t want to say anything because we never discuss our private lives, but it’s confirmed and it’s a joy for my family and her family,” the Barcelona player added. “We’re looking forward to that moment.”

Two weeks ago, Messi appeared to hint at a pregnancy by putting the ball under his shirt after a goal in in a packed Monumental Stadium in Buenos Aires.
