Cuteness alert. Although we tend to forget or doubt it, Lionel Messi is a human being. Just like everyone else, he had a childhood, and given that evidence of this is scarce, every piece of evidence we find goes viral within a very short amount of time.
This time, Argentinian media company La Capital managed to get their hands on a childhood picture of the Barça striker, after several months of investigating.
At the beach in Mar Del Plata, South of Buenos Aires, you'll recognize little Leo, 10 years old, surrounded by his friends. But the Argentine press was especially moved by this photo because Antonella Rocuzzo, who is now Leo Messi's wife and the mother of his three children, is also in the picture!
Of course, this token of the five-time Golden Ball winner's loyalty and the beauty of the two lovebirds' love story spread across the world very quickly! Take a look at the video above to see the adorable photograph for yourself!
