FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has sent birthday wishes to his girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo, who he has been dating since December 2008.
Rocuzzo, who turns 26 years old today, has known Messi since childhood, and began to date the Argentine superstar when he returned to his home town six years ago.
“I have known Antonella since we were five years old; she is my best friend’s cousin, from Rosario like myself,” said Messi.
“I have seen her grow up just like she has seen me grow up, our families know each other, so I never had any doubts.”
Barca ace Messi posted the below picture to social network Instagram, with the following caption:
“Happy birthday my darling !!! l love you !!”
