Lionel Messi pulled out of the Barcelona squad Saturday (it didn't matter, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho scored and Barcelona beat Malaga 2-0) in order to be present at the birth of his third child. He and his wife Antonella shared Instagram posts indicating everything had gone well.
Tiago and Mateo have a new baby brother named Ciro.
Only eight more children to go until we can field an entire XI of Messi children who will run rampant and take over the soccer world.
