Barcelona ace Lionel Messi is proving to be prolific both on and off the field of play as the football star and his wife Antonella Roccuzzo announced on Instagram that they are expecting baby number three.
They revealed the news in an Instagram post on Anonella's page which read "family of five" which was accompanied by five hearts, a hashtag blessed and a cute family picture.
The pictured had Messi, Antonella, Thiago and Mateo but with all the males touching their wife, or mother's belly.
The newborn will be the first child Antonella has given birth to since she officially married Messi.
Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1 on Wednesday, October 11, to secure a World Cup spot thanks to a Messi treble on the pitch.
The 30-year-old delivered when his country needed him most as they avoided a qualification disaster to book their trip to Russia.
The two-time World Cup winners and 2014 runners-up were in real danger of missing the tournament for just the second time in their history.
Messi would be going to the World Cup next summer and hoping to win the only missing piece in his illustrious career and also hoping to win it for his new born baby.
