Leo Messi got married as he said “I do” to his childhood friend Antonella Roccuzzo on Friday in his Argentine hometown Rosario. Antonella Roccuzzo is the mother of Messi’s two children Thiago (born 2012) and Mateo (born 2015).

Argentine media called it the “wedding of the century” for Rosario, the city perched on the banks of the Paraná River.

Following a private ceremony, the couple walked on red carpet before hundreds of journalists at a hotel and casino complex.

They were joined by a number of stars, including Pinto, Gabriel Milito, Puyol, Piqué, Dani Alves, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Xavi, Eto'o, Neymar, Luis Suárez, Di María, Lavezzi and Agüero.

Messi has gone on to win the top Ballon d'Or award five times and is widely regarded as the world’s best footballer.

Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo currently live in Barcelona, but still return regularly to Rosario on holiday. He moved to Spain when he was 13 to join FC Barcelona, but the couple kept in touch.
