Who says soccer players don’t have personal lives off the field?

When Lionel Messi arrives in the Magic City at the end of the month for El Clasico Miami: Real Madrid CF v. FC Barcelona at Hard Rock Stadium, he may have someone with him: his wife.

Messi married childhood sweetheart Antonela Roccuzzo in his hometown of Rosario, Argentina, Friday night and locals were excited as he is the best thing since sliced bread to come to that town.

The BBC reports that the 200 plus guests included Messi’s Barcelona teammates Luis Suárez, Neymar, Gerard Piqué, who came with Shakira.

The decorated soccer player and Roccuzzo are parents to 4-year-old Thiago and 1-year-old Mateo.

In other nonathletic news, Real Madrid’s standout player Cristiano Ronaldo announced he had become a father to twins.

According to Hollywood Life, the Portuguese athlete’s newborns were born to an unidentified surrogate mother. 

That’s not all. The Hollywood Reporter adds that Ronaldo’s model girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is also pregnant. 

Congrats to both guys!
