Lionel Messi has a son, presumably starts prepping for World Cup 203211/3/2012
Lionel Messi scored big Friday, though this time it had little to do with his talents on the soccer field. Messi, who's pretty much the best soccer player on the planet, became a father for the first time after his girlfriend, Antonella Rocuzzo, gave birth to a boy named Thiago. Messi, an Argentine national who stars for FC Barcelona, was excused from a training session Friday morning to be with Rocuzzo as she gave birth in a Barcelona hospital. The 25-year-old Messi posted on Facebook that he was "the happiest man in the world." And as icing on the cake, Messi, having another stellar season, is a favorite to win his fourth world player of the year award. [Source]
