LIONEL MESSI posted an adorable throwback picture of him and his wife Antonella from when they first met as teenagers.
The Barcelona superstar, 32, posted the snap showing the pair after they met during their childhood in Rosario, Argentina.
Messi poses next to Roccuzzo, 31, in what looks like a printed photo.
It is unclear exactly when the picture was taken but the pair are clearly quite young.
Messi captioned the snap: “The years go by…”
Messi and Roccuzzo met in Argentina after Messi was introduced to her by a friend when he was just nine.
The two met in 1996 but their relationship did not come about immediately.
But this did not stop the lovebirds staying in touch and after a fatal car accident killed one of Roccuzzo’s close friends, Messi travelled back to Argentina to show his support.
According to local media, it is around this time that their relationship began.
Messi hinted at the relationship in 2008 and mentioned he was with someone, although he did not specify who.
They moved in together in 2010, months prior to the World Cup in South Africa and have been together ever since.
The couple married in 2017 and have had three sons, Thiago, six, Mateo, four, and Ciro, one.
