BUENOS AIRES, May 1 (AFP): Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi announced yesterday he is to be a father again by posting a picture of his pregnant partner on social media.
The four-time Ballon d�Or, 27, took to Instagram to post a picture of his son, Thiago, kissing Antonella Roccuzzo�s stomach with the message: �Can�t wait to welcome you into our world!!! We love you! Thiagui, mum and dad.�
Local press in Argentina had been speculating about Messi�s future fatherhood since February with newspaper Clarin saying the couple already knew they were due to have a baby boy who would be named Benjamin.
Messi and Roccuzzo�s first son was born in November 2012.
