LIONEL MESSI has hit another hat-trick with his third baby on the way.
The Barcelona and Argentina legend is expecting baby No3 with Antonella Roccuzzo who revealed the heartwarming news on Instagram with five hearts to represent their growing family.
Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1 on Wednesday to and secure a World Cup spot thanks to a Messi treble on the pitch.
The 30-year-old delivered when his country needed most as they avoided a qualification disaster to book their trip to Russia.

The Argentines needed a win at Ecuador, and they got off to the worst possible start when Romario Ibarra gave the hosts the lead after just 40 seconds.
But, with his side in danger, Messi stood up to be counted.
The Barca master equalised in the 12th minute after a one-two with Angel Di Maria, and he doubled his tally six minutes later with a venomous strike into the top corner.
