Lionel Messi reveals that he wants another child with his stunning wife, Antonela, as he claims ‘we’ll see if a baby girl arrives’

Lionel Messi has suggested that he and wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, could try for another baby. 

Messi, 36, is known for being a family man and he and his beautiful wife Antonela, also 36, share three sons together – Thiago, 10, Mateo, 7, and Ciro, 5. 

The Argentinian family have been spotted out hitting the local supermarket, dining out and cheering on their dad at his games since the World Cup winner made the move Stateside to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami. 

However, the family of five could be stepping out as a six in the future as the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner refused to rule out the possibility of another little one joining the Messi clan. 

The soccer superstar was asked if he and Antonela, a model and influencer, would consider having another baby by Argentinian comedian Migue Granados during an interview on OLGA.

And Messi, who had welcomed Granados into his Miami home to film the segment, teased the arrival of a baby girl. 

‘We’re not trying, but I don’t know [if the factory has closed],’ he admitted. ‘We’ll see if a baby girl arrives.’

Messi’s eldest son Thiago is already following in his father’s footsteps after joining Inter Miami’s academy in August. 

But Messi revealed that Thiago is more of a mama’s boy, as he said his three sons all have very different personalities. 

‘They have different personalities,’ Messi said. ‘Thiago, when he comes on the field to play, he doesn’t look at you.’ 

‘Mateo. He comes on, he greets the crowd, applauds. They’re different characters.’

Meanwhile, he claimed Ciro, his youngest, is somewhat of an unknown as the youngster is still growing into himself. 

‘The youngest is terrible,’ he joked. ‘He’s only five years old, and he’s not yet defined.’

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner celebrated his first Inter Miami goal with his family 

Messi added: ‘Mateo you have to stop, he talks to you and doesn’t stop. Ciro is more reserved. He tells you things but not about himself, he talks about others.’

He added that Thiago is very close to his mom, saying: ‘Thiago has trouble talking much, he’s glued to Antonela… Thiago is sensitive.’ 

Messi went on to praise his wife, hailing her as a dedicated mother to their three kids. 

‘She’s a great mother. The truth is, she with them 24/7, I’m away a lot. Sometimes I’m gone a month, month and a half, she’s there everyday.’ 

Messi and Antonela met for the first time in the 90s in their hometown, Rosario. The Argentine was just five years old when he met the love of his life.

Antonela was the cousin of Messi’s childhood friend Lucas Scaglia. The two love birds ended up spending a substantial amount of time together when they were young.

Messi and Antonela’s relationship blossomed during their younger years and the pair kept in contact when the No. 10 left for Barcelona at the age of 13. Then, in 2008, Messi and Antonela made their relationship public.

Messi and Antonela welcomed their first son Thiago into the world in 2012 before having two more sons Mateo (2015) and Ciro (2018).

The couple are childhood sweethearts, having met when he was just five years old 

The pair tied the not in 2017 in a lavish wedding at a luxury hotel in the heart of Rosario. 

She is huge supporter of her husband and is regularly seen cheering him from the stands at his games. 

Since arriving in South Florida, the couple have soaked up the Miami social scene, dining out with David and Victoria Beckham as well as close friends, Messi’s teammate Sergio Busquets and his partner Elena Galera. 

The young family recently bought a sprawling new $10.75million estate in Fort Lauderdale which features 10 bedrooms, a spa room, two boat docks and a swimming pool.

The Argentina superstar – who signed a two-and-a-half-year deal worth $50-60m a season – has been looking to expand his property portfolio since joining Inter Miami in the summer.

He already owned a luxury $9m apartment in Miami – and now has two other condos in Sunny Isles Beach, according to reports – but had recently been spotted house hunting with Antonela and Thiago in the Boca Raton area.

But Messi signed off on a new 10,500 square-foot property within the gated community at Bay Colony, one of the floating neighborhoods north of Fort Lauderdale last week. 

The stunning house is just off the beachfront, barely a 15-minute drive from Miami’s DRV PNK Stadium and training base. Sergio Busquets is not far away either – the midfielder, who followed Messi to South Florida, is reported to have recently paid around $9m for a waterfront home in Sea Ranch Lakes.
