Lionel Messi has confirmed that his third son with wife Antonella Roccuzzo will be named Ciro.
Ciro is expected to be born at the end of February or in early March. He will be welcomed into the world by his adoring parents and older brothers Thiago and Mateo.
Messi announced the news on his Instagram account, having kept his loyal following of fans waiting since the announcement that his wife was expecting.
Neither the gender nor the name of the baby was known at that point, although a social media post from Antonella in November revealed that another boy was on the way.
