WAG of the day: Irina Shayk

Irina Shayk is a Russian model known for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue from 2007 through to 2011.

She entered WAG status having started dating Cristiano Ronaldo in 2010. The two are believed to have met through their Armani Exchange campaigns.

She was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia. Her late father Valeri was of Tatar origin and her mother is Russian. Shayk says that she got her unusual looks from her father, and she has said that people often think she is South American.
