Messi junior has arrived.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is a father.
The 25 year old left a Barcelona training session earlier today to accompany his girlfriend Antonella Rocuzzo to local hospital USP Dexeus.
Several hours later, their boy Thiago was born just after 5pm local time.
Unfortunately for Celta Vigo Messi will be back in plenty of time to take part in tomorrow night’s encounter at the Nou Camp.
Tickets still available for top football matches – Barcelona v Athletic Bilbao tickets
