Leo and Antonella announced in October that they are expecting baby number three. "Familia de 5 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #blessed👦🏻👦🏻👦🏻,” the picture of Leo, Thiago and Mateo touching Antonella’s baby bump read. In 2016, the soccer champion opened up about fatherhood and life with his family. “The births of our sons—Thiago, three, and Mateo, eight months—were life changing as well,” Leo told Sports Illustrated.

He added, “I’m ecstatic about the family we have been able to create. A typical day involves taking Thiago to school, going to training, hanging out at home drinking maté and spending time with Anto and the kids at the park or somewhere. It’s a normal, calm life, the kind of life we have always wanted.”
