Barcelona star Lionel Messi celebrated his youngest son Mateo’s birthday with his wife Antonella Roccuzzo and his other son Thiago over the weekend.

The Argentina international posted a picture of the four of them on his official Instagram account.

It was all smiles from Messi and his family as they stood by a canvas on a sketching easel that wished Mateo a happy second birthday.  

Messi also posted another picture of them — with someone dressed in a Mickey Mouse costume — surrounded by balloons and a Mickey-Mouse themed array of sweets. 

He captioned the photo: ‘Beautiful happy birthday!!!! I love my life!!!!’ 

The 30-year-old has earned himself some much-needed down time following his match-winning performance at the weekend. 

Messi shone for Barcelona netting a hat-trick as the Catalan giants capitalised on Real Madrid’s slip-up against Levante with a 5-0 thumping of local rivals Espanyol on Saturday. 

Barcelona have won all three of their opening La Liga games and top the table four points clear of Madrid.
