World Cup Brings WAG Antonella Roccuzzo Into Spotlight
World Cup fans in Brazil want to know more about the WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of their favorite sports heroes, and Antonella Roccuzzo is definitely considered this World Cup’s sexiest WAG. She is the Argentinian beauty who has captured the attention of football star Lionel Messi for the past six years. The 26-year old beauty recently stated that being in the long-time relationship has been a source of much happiness and relaxation for her. She and Messi are the proud parents of a son, Thiago, born to the couple in the fall of 2012. Dad Messi was so happy to become a father for the first time that he had his newborn’s name and handprints tattooed on his left leg.
Both Roccuzzo and Messi grew up in the same region of Argentina in the town of Rosario. Although Roccuzzo continues to live in Rosario, she and Thiago are often jetting to Barcelona in order to spend time with Messi. Although reporters often boldly knock on the door of Roccuzzo’s home to interview her, she is too shy to answer and remains something of a mystery woman. Roccuzzo has never revealed much about herself, either to the public, the news media, or the paparazzi.
According to some sources, her background is Italian. Although she initially entered college in order to become a dentist, at some point she switched her study major to communications, although it is not certain whether or not she ever received her degree. She is the cousin of Messi’s best friend and first met the future soccer star when both of them were five years old. They have been dating since 2008. Fans are wondering if the couple will choose this year’s World Cup ceremony to officially tie the knot because they have been engaged since 2011.
