Lionel messi dating
Messi has a reputation for shyness - particularly as a youngster - but is said to have been besotted with Antonella from a young age, regularly visiting Scaglia's family home just to get a chance to see her.
She attended university in Argentina - studying odotology before switching to social communication - and then moved to Barcelona to join Leo.
Messi first confirmed he had a girlfriend back in 2009 and on June 30, they will return home to marry each other at a star-studded ceremony.
Messi's wedding: All you need to know Roccuzzo was born in Rosario, like Messi, and is the cousin of the Barcelona star's childhood friend Lucas Scaglia.
It was on the programme 'Hat Trick Barça', of the Catalan channel 'TV3', in January 2009. While Messi started on his road to becoming the greatest player in the world, Antonella was in a relationship with another Rosario neighbour, one that lasted three years.
The death of a friend of Antonella's in a traffic accident led to the renewed meeting of Antonella and Leo.
Those who know him recall that he would write letters as a kid, stating that one day Antonella would be his girlfriend. The truth is that I am well and I am relaxed." From that moment, Antonella Roccuzzo, who always had a close relationship with Leo, was linked to the life of Messi.
It was not until he had turned 21-years-old that the relationship became known. Antonella, who studied at the Latin American Education Centre, took a different path to Leo when the Barça star left to go to the Catalan capital.
According to , Antonella's relationship with Leo blossomed after Messi returned to Rosario to console her following the death of a friend in a traffic accident.Many of those guests began arriving earlier this week, including Carles Puyol, Luis Suárez, Samuel Eto’o, Cesc Fábregas, Jordi Alba, Xavi Hernández and Sergio Busquets.Expected to arrive is Messi’s Barcelona buddy Neymar, although he has yet to be spotted.Enrique Dominguez, the trainer, approached the father of Lucas Scaglia and inquired about what was going on. "But why is he so anxious if he always goes to your house?" came the reply."Because now the weekend is coming around and Antonella, Lucas' cousin, comes on Saturdays and Sundays. Like a character from a novel, Lionel Messi fell quickly for Antonella Rocuzzo.
