Lionel Messi's wife Antonela shares never-before-seen picture of pair as teenage sweethearts in gushing birthday message

LIONEL MESSI'S wife Antonela has shared a never-before-seen picture of the teenage sweethearts in a birthday message to her husband.

The pair, both from Rosario, Argentina, married in July 2017 after more than 20 years of knowing each other.

They have three sons together: Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro.

The Barcelona captain celebrated his 34th birthday on Thursday away from his wife and kids as he is current chasing Copa America glory with Argentina.

His wife Antonela captioned the Instagram post: "Happy Birthday my Love.

"We love you more every day! You are everything to us, we miss you so much!"

Argentina are looking to capture the Copa America, ending their 28-year major international trophy drought.

Messi has guided Argentina to the top of their Copa America group, which has seen the La Albiceleste draw one and win two.

Argentina will play their last group game against Bolivia on Tuesday, June 29.

Messi has scored one goal and provided one assist in the three games played, scoring a wonderful free-kick in the opening group game draw against Chile.


The legendary attacker stepped up central to the goal, 25 yards out, and curled the ball into the top-right corner.

But his stunner wasn't enough to secure three points, with Chile's Eduardo Vargas scoring the equaliser.

The game also saw Blackburn Rovers' Ben Brereton play, sharing the pitch with one of the greatest of all time.

The Stoke-on-Trent born striker switched international allegiance from England to Chile due to the fact his mother was born in the country.
