Although football star has previously dated English models Alice Goodwin and Gemma Atkinson; it sure seems Russia is the one to have won his heart!
Ronaldo and his Russian girl have been together since early 2010, but this gal is more than just a football wag! Born Irina Shaykhlislamova on January 6, 1986 in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia.
She is a Russian model known for her 2007 through 2012 appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She was the cover model for the 2011 issue! And how could she not!!! Just take a look she is absolutely gorgeous!
This 5 ft 10 in, brown hair and green eyes knock out works for IMG models in USA, France and Italy.
Her mother Olga, being a pianist and techaer wanted her to study music and she did for seven years starting at the age of nine. After high school, Shayk studied marketing but was bored by it and entered a local beauty school with her older sister, Tatian. While there, she was noticed by a person from a local modeling agency who was struck by her unusual beauty. She was urged to participate in the “Miss Chelyabinsk 2004” beauty contest and she won.
And although she is considered to have started her modeling career relatively late at age 19; she has been successful nevertheless.
She is been also successful in finding love with footballer Ronaldo while they seemed very much in love and spending quality time all over the globe we have no news of they getting hitch any time soon. What do you think about this two?? We can’t forget she is been very understanding on him being a daddy already?? Would you do the same?? Is it maybe love??
We wish this great looking power couple the best of luck!
