Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has announced the arrival of his third child and son, Ciro, after his wife, Antonella Roccuzzo gave birth on Saturday.
The Blaugrana alerted the public early in the day that their star player would not make the trip to La Rosaleda with the rest of the squad, stating only that the Argentina international would not feature in the Liga clash due to ‘personal reasons,’ with Yerry Mina taking his place in the squad.
The news left fans suspecting that the birth of his third son was the reason for his exclusion from the squad, and the Argentine confirmed those suspicions, taking to Instagram to announce Ciro had been born, with the message: “Welcome Ciro! Thank God everything went perfect. Mum and he are very well. We are super happy.”
The 30-year-old is also a dad to sons Thiago, 5, and Mateo, 2, and has been with his wife Antonella since he was 20.
