BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Lionel Messi announced the birth of his third child — and third son — on Saturday.

The Argentina forward wrote on his Instagram account in Spanish: "Welcome Ciro! Thank God everything went perfect. Mom and he are very well. We are super happy!!!!!"

Messi is married to Antonella Roccuzzo, the mother of their three children.

Barcelona said early Saturday that Messi would miss a match at Malaga later in the day for "personal reasons."

Barcelona leads the Spanish league by eight points.
