Truly it’s ‘wedding of the century’…!!!

          ‘Wedding of the Century is the phrase that is used to define the marriage of World’s best footballer Lionel Messi to his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo. Of course, it was a much awaited wedding.

          Lionel Messi said “I do” to his childhood sweetheart and mother of their two children on Friday.

          The grand wedding ceremony was attended by his family and some of the greatest world football players who enjoyed the beautiful wedding 

ceremony followed by a typical Argentina roast at hotel La Quinta, Case de Campo. The couple who have known each other for 25 years and have two kids together finally got hitched together in a wedding ceremony that looked too good to be true! 

          But, while the groom is one of the most famous individuals on the planet, far less is known about his bride. In contrast to the more modest upbringings of Messi, Roccuzzo grew up in the middle class neighborhood of Rosario.        

       Like a character from a novel, Lionel Messi fell quickly for Antonella Roccuzzo. Antonellawas the cousin of one of his friends and he saw her first time while young Messi and the friend were playing PlayStation game. Right then he knew that he wanted to be with her forever.

          As a young Newell’s hopeful, Messi used to hang around his buddy’s house in hope of running into his friend’s beautiful cousin.

          Sources close to the 30 year old 


star reveal that from a tender age, he  always had a dream that he would tie the knot with Antonella. He reportedly wrote letters as a kid stating that Antonella would be his girlfriend  and as fate would have it, it happened.

          After staying in Antonella’s friend Zone for at least two decades, Messi finally had a breakthrough in his pursuit for the love of his life. The relationship was made official on a TV programme called ‘Hat trick barca’ in 2009 when Messi revealed that he had a girlfriend who lived inArgentina.

          In 2012, Messi scored a goal against Ecuador and his celebration confirmed another secret- the couple expecting their first child, Thiago, who was later born on November 2, 2012. Three years later, Leo broke the news of the expected arrival of Mateo, their second child who was born on September 11, 2015.

          Since the official confirmation of their relationship the couple has been an inspiration to many football fans across the world.

          Various old friends of the couple in their city say the bride and groom are humble folk who have never forgotten where they come from.

          People these days change their partners more frequently than they change clothes. Some, in fact, are so daring that they involve themselves with more than one partner. The survival rate of a relationship among celebrity couples, especially, has always been low.  The media limelight 

sometimes becomes too much to handle. The  heartbreaks and broken stories have become the usual trend.  However,  even amidst this gloom, there is hope. Even a  molehill becomes a mountain  in their case  since they don’t have the luxury of  keeping their lives extensively private.
