Buenos Aires (AFP) – Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi has added two-time dad to his long list of honors, after his girlfriend gave birth to a son, relatives announced.
Mateo Messi was born Friday in Barcelona, the athlete’s brother wrote on Twitter.

“Mateo has just been born, he is beautiful,” Matias Messi wrote.
“We’re savoring this moment of happiness.”
Messi, 28, and longtime companion Antonella Roccuzzo are already parents to a toddler son, Thiago, who turns three later this year.
Messi was last month voted UEFA’s best player in Europe for 2014-2015. The Argentina star — who won the Champions League, Spain’s La Liga and Spanish Cup last season with Barcelona — claimed the award for the second time.
