Georgina Rodriguez puts Cristiano Ronaldo-Lionel Messi rivalry aside to wish Barcelona star's son happy birthday

GEORGINA RODRIGUEZ put Cristiano Ronaldo's rivalry with Lionel Messi to one side as she wished the Barcelona star's son a happy birthday.

The 26-year-old model responded to a post put up by Thiago Messi's mum on his eighth birthday.

Ronaldo and Messi battled it out for club and personal honours during the Portuguese star's spell in La Liga from 2009 until 2018.

But Rodriguez has proved there are no hard feelings off the pitch between her and Messi's wife Antonela Roccuzzo.

Alongside a photograph of birthday boy Thiago in a Barcelona short, mum-of-three Roccuzzo wrote: “Happy Birthday Thiagui.

“I don’t have words to say what you mean to us.

“Always with a smile and that peace you transmit.

“We love you and I’m going to carry on you smothering you in kisses even though you don’t like it.”

Sofia Balbi, wife of former Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, responded immediately with her own birthday greeting.

Former Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas’ wife Daniella Seeman, another good friend of Roccuzzo’s, was also quick off the mark and replied: “Happy birthday handsome boy.

Feliz Cumple Thiagui❤️No tengo palabras para decirte todo lo que sos para nosotros! Siempre con una sonrisa y esa paz que transmitis❤️TE AMAMOS y te voy a seguir llenando de besos aunque no te guste 🤪

“We love you and miss you so much.”

But Rodriguez showed she wasn’t going to be left out by adding in an Instagram response: “How quickly they grow. Congratulations” alongside a heart emoji.

Fans were quick to show their appreciation of the former Gucci shop worker's gesture, with one writing: “Respect.”

Another added: “That’s wonderful. I didn’t know they were friends. That’s the way to go Georgina.”

Thiago is the eldest of Messi's three sons and a keen footballer who is playing for the Barcelona FC youth team.

Ronaldo and Messi are friendly off the pitch and have often been seen chatting at awards ceremonies.

Messi admitted in an interview last year: “It was nice to have Cristiano in LaLiga for the prestige it brought.”

The pair were set to lock horns when Juventus faced Barcelona in the Champions League last week.

But Ronaldo was unable to play after he tested positive for coronavirus for the third time.

Serie A star Ronaldo was forced to self isolate in a separate part of his house to Rodriguez and their four children.

But he returned to action – and showed off his ripped physique – as Juventus played Spezia on Sunday.
