Breaking news: Lionel Messi is getting married to his longtime girlfriend Antonella Rocuzzo, according to Barcelona paper Sport.

The date and place have not been finalized, but it’s likely to take place in Messi and Rocuzzo’s hometown of Rosario, Argentina.

The two have been together for a long time and have two children: Thiago and Mateo.

The pair met when they were children, and it seems even then young Leo had eyes for little Antonella. But their relationship did not really take off until 2007, and things got serious when she moved from Argentina to Messi’s house in Barcelona in 2009.

The report cites “sources close to Messi’s family.” If it is true, we should see confirmation soon.
