Leo Messi is a father. Late on Friday afternoon, his girlfriend Antonella Rocuzzo gave birth to Thiago Messi, the couple’s first child. The greatest player in the world thanked everybody for this support with a brief message on his Facebook account: “Today I am the happiest man in the world, my son has been born, thanks to God for this gift! Thanks to my family for their support. Love to you all!”
