Lionel Messi’s family just grew and became a little furrier than it was before.
Messi is the proud owner of a new dog. The soccer superstar revealed Tuesday on Instagram he received the dog as a gift from longtime partner Antonella Roccuzzo.
Messi didn’t reveal the breed of the dog or its name.
Messi, 28, and Rocuzzo have known each other since he was five years old and have been in a relationship since 2008.
Rocuzzo already has given Messi two children — Thiago, 3, and Mateo, 3 months.
And she gives on, as the new pooch and Messi can attest.
