His son, Thiago was born on 2nd November, 2012. Just after his son could see the first light on earth, Thiago became a prime target for many different clubs. Messi’s first club Newell’s Old Boys was first in line and achieved the height when they signed junior Messi just 72 hours after he was born. Messi’s father, Jeorge, negotiated the contract for his grandson Thiago with Newell’s Old Boys. The club officials traveled to Europe and completed the documentation with their newest and youngest member on 5th November, 2012. A replica kit of Thiago’s size was also given to the new-born, along with a small version of No.10 “Thiago” Jersey of the club.
