Europe went crazy for how cute he was during the Eurovision 2015 season and have followed his exploits on social media ever since.

And now Messi – Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw’s beautiful black labrador-retriever – has become a father, after his lady gave birth to eight healthy puppies. The birth of the puppies also makes Messi’s “Dad” Måns a grandfather at the tender age of 30. We wonder what his English girlfriend Ciara Janson thinks of that!

Messi rose to fame after he accompanied Måns to an interview with wiwibloggs during Melodifestivalen 2015.

During that interview Måns told us how Messi came into his life as an 8-week old puppy and has been with him ever since.

Prior to filming, Måns handed the leash to wiwiblogger William while he ran to grab a coffee. Naturally the leash fell apart. But Messi, ever the loyal pup, simply sat and waiting for the “Hope and Glory” singer to return. Awwww.

And as the dog has grown, he’s grown on Måns too and even then the Swedish stud admitted he couldn’t imagine living without Messi anymore. Questions about Messi have followed Måns ever since.

The handsome hound most recently appeared on Zelmerlöw’s Instagram page before his European Chameleon Tour.

In that post he was helping his master prepare for the tour, taking in a woodland walk in the UK.

With the stamina involved in touring a continent, we can imagine the dynamic duo took in a lot of dog walks to get set for the tour, which took in dates in France, the UK and Poland.

While Messi has been busy fathering puppies, his musical owner hasn’t been idle either, recording a French version of “Hanging Onto Nothing” and preparing for his summer tour of Sweden.

The first date of the tour is tomorrow night in Grona Lund, where he’ll be promoting “Wrong Decision” (his latest single from Chameleon) which is in the Top 15 radio airplay chart in Sweden.

The wiwibloggs team sends its warmest wishes to Messi, the mother and the puppies.

This is so cute, I’m surprised that Wiwibloggs doesn’t have more news like that, knowing that you like to ask the artists about other topics in their life, you even ”shocked” Eduard Romanyuta when you asked him about his hair.

Put down the haterade, this is cute I suffer from PED as much as any ESC fan but with all the conflict happening right now news like this gives us a reprieve from the daily madness of modern life.

Oh dear, you’re right. Much as I love Wiwibloggs, finding myself reading about the puppy litter of a former winner (even one who now lives near me) makes me think I need to take a Eurovision break.
