The love story between Antonella Roccuzzo and Lionel Messi started many years ago. They met when they were just 5 years old, as their families are friends. Antonella is Lionel’s best friend Lucas Scaglia’s cousin, so they basically grew up together.
Lionel moved from Argentina to Barcelona when he was very young. He suffered from a growth problem that could not be cured at home, so all the family moved to Europe in order for him to have a chance.
Meanwhile, Antonella remained in Rosario where Messi usually flew back to for the holidays. It was on Christmas vacation in 2009, that they met again and fell in love with each other.
"Hey Frank today is a very special day because it’s your birthday so thank you for being that person so amazing and affectionate you are. You’re my pride and inspiration, I want you to be very happy and that you get everything you want because you deserve, I’d hug you right now if I could, but I can’t, so I just leave this post to show how much you’ve changed my life and keeps changing, (even if you don’t know that) I am very grateful to you. I love you. Thank you for everything. Happy birthday my litlle monster ♥!!!" - Me ^-^
When people see me, I’m on the red carpet, perfectly dressed and styled, after two hours of hair and makeup. I’m putting on a show. So when I explain that I have moments when I feel dark or insecure, I understand how it might not really ring true, because there’s this weird double-life thing I have going on.
