Messi Kids: Steady Thiago, Mischievous Mateo, And Shy Ciro

Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi has achieved all the championships in his career, and even if he were to retire now, he would have no regrets.

However, when it comes to Messi off the field, the topic that comes up the most is his love story with childhood sweetheart Antonela, from being innocent childhood friends at 9 to now a family of five. Despite his immense wealth, Messi has never been involved in any scandals, fulfilling many people’s fantasies about a childhood love story.

But what makes Messi enviable is not just his love life, but also the fact that Messi kids are so adorable! Well, Messi’s three children have completely different personalities! Let’s take a look together!

Thiago Messi Roccuzzo, 11

On November 2, 2012, Messi and Roccuzzo became parents for the first time, welcoming their eldest son Thiago.

Shortly after his birth, Messi tattooed Thiago’s name and handprints on his leg to express his love for his little boy.

On November 5, 2012, when Thiago was just 3 days old, with the help of his grandfather, Jorge Messi, he became a member of the Newell’s Old Boys fan club. By October 31, 2016, Thiago Messi had already started training at Barcelona’s youth academy. Messi sent him to the Barcelona football school (FCB Escola) to continue their family’s soccer journey.

As a child, Thiago had big, round eyes, chubby cheeks, and an adorable double chin that hid his neck.

Since Thiago’s arrival, even the haters of Messi couldn’t resist falling for Thiago’s cuteness!

Thiago is the most mature of Messi kids. Even as a child, you could see it on his face when he stepped onto the field, saying, “Why am I here? Can I go home?”

When his dad wanted to give him a victory kiss, Thiago’s face said no.

The only thing that could make him smile on the field was the little confetti that burst out during the celebrations after winning a championship. (It had nothing to do with the game, anyway.)

As Thiago grew up, he might have begun to admire his dad, or maybe he just fell in love with soccer. Thiago learned to focus on watching the game at the stadium, getting nervous about his dad’s victories or losses.

When his dad won, he tried to imitate the celebration gestures he learned from his dad’s good friend, Uncle Neymar.

He also plays soccer with his buddies.

What remains unchanged is his increasingly mature temperament as he grows up. When his dad is interviewed, he often talks about his well-behaved and sensible eldest son.

Dad laughs foolishly, Mom is gentle, and Thiago remains aloof.

Mateo Messi Roccuzzo, 9

On September 11, 2015, Messi and Antonela welcomed their second child, Mateo Messi Roccuzzo.

If Thiago is Messi’s good boy, Mateo is the little rascal.

Unlike his well-behaved and sensible brother Thiago, Mateo’s mischievous nature is evident in his eyes. According to Messi, he is the jokester of the family and never misses an opportunity to tease his father or brother, including cheering for the opposing team.

Mateo supports whichever team Messi is rivaling. Everyone knows Barcelona and Real Madrid are arch-rivals, but Mateo cheers for Real Madrid when they score a goal. Messi and Suarez, sitting beside him, are puzzled and wonder which side he’s on.

So Mateo has become the certified little rascal of his dad. Messi, in interviews, complains about his second son, saying that Mateo always looks at him with a provocative face. Mateo’s favorite thing to do is to contradict him and Thiago.

When Thiago and Mateo are together, Thiago sits quietly while Mateo is exceptionally lively.

When Messi kids (the three brothers) stand together, Mateo’s exaggerated expressions immediately catch your attention.

Of course, despite his rebellious nature as a child, Mateo still knows how to show love and concern for his dad. For example, during this Qatar World Cup, when Argentina unexpectedly lost to Saudi Arabia in their first match, Mateo left the stadium crying.

And from what we’ve seen so far, Mateo is the most likely to follow in Messi’s footsteps. Based on his recent performances in soccer, Mateo resembles a young Messi with a very flexible body. Watching Mateo play, you can’t help but think of Messi.

Ciro Messi Roccuzzo, 6

Ciro Messi Roccuzzo was born on March 10, 2018, and he is the third child of Messi and Antonela.

It’s still too early to tell if he will inherit his father’s soccer skills, but one thing we can be sure of is how much he looks like his dad!

Not only does Ciro resemble Messi in appearance, but he also has the same shy personality as his dad.

However, as soon as Ciro is around his family, he immediately turns into a smiley little cutie.

When Ciro was born, there were already four people in the family showering him with love. Growing up in a loving environment, he may be shy but not timid.

Although he is too young to understand the joy of soccer at the moment, he always follows his brothers and cheers for his dad.

Genetics truly work in mysterious ways. Just by looking at their faces, you can see the different personalities of Messi kids (the three brothers). Thiago is steady, Mateo is mischievous, and Ciro is shy.
