Antonella Roccuzzo, born on February 26, 1988, in Rosario, Argentina, is known as the wife of the world’s football star, Lionel Messi. Coming from a family of Argentine entrepreneurs, Antonella has always had a keen eye for fashion. After starting studies in dentistry and then social communication, she turned to other horizons, away from the family professional field.
Antonella Roccuzzo has known Lionel Messi since childhood
Although she prefers to keep a low profile, Antonella’s influence on social media is remarkable. Her presence at the matches of her husband, Lionel Messi, is always in the spotlight, especially after Argentina’s victory in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Antonella Roccuzzo does not fit the stereotype of WAGs (wives and girlfriends of footballers). She and Messi have been together since 2008 and have known each other since childhood, as Antonella is the cousin of Messi’s best friend, Lucas Scaglia.
An influencer who is making waves in the fashion world
Her love of design led her to launch “Enfans”, a children’s clothing brand in partnership with her cousin Andrea Lo Menzo. This brand offers timeless designs for children, combining comfort and luxury. As an influencer, she keeps a more reserved profile, but the impact of her Instagram posts puts her in the spotlight. Her modeling career is also notable, with her participation in campaigns with designer Ricky Sarkany.
Antonella Roccuzzo’s fortune is estimated at nearly €20 million
The famous entrepreneur and model has a fortune that the media The Sun estimates to be close to €20 million, independent of Lionel Messi’s more colossal one. She recently launched a line of shoes in collaboration with Sofía Balbi, wife of Uruguayan footballer Luis Suárez. Married to Messi in January 2017 after nine years of dating, they have three children: Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro.
