She added: ‘What a guy! Doesn’t care about my Messi posters all over the house, like….super cool’. 

Catherine and Michael have been married for 22 years and have two children. 

The Paris Saint-Germain star led the South American side to global glory on Sunday night, scoring twice to help his side beat France 4-2 on penalties at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar. 

The Albiceleste captain immediately sank to his knees and embraced his compatriots when Gonzalo Montiel scored Argentina’s final penalty to seal the win, but quickly collected himself and cantered over to the stands where he was mobbed by wife Antonella Roccuzzo and his three sons, Thiago, Mateo and Ciro.
