December 18, 2012 0 By Rodney Burrell

Irina Shayk is a Russian born model, TV personality and actress. In 2012, she’s been on the cover of over 20 magazines, but now she can rest easy because she’s appearing on KDM’s website, probably the most coveted of all media outlets in the world…Says the editor in the basement.

Shayk is a classically trained pianist and singer. Shayk was discovered while she was attending beauty school. She competed in the “Miss Chelyabinsk 2004” competition, won, and has been braking hearts ever since.

Shayk has also branched out into TV, as the host for the Russian version of Top Model. It’s not all lingerie and puckered lips though, Shayk and her older sister, Tatiana are helping to rebuild the children’s ward of a local hospital, and she raises money for the Russian charity, Pomogi, which means “help me” in Russian.

Shayk is currently dating Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the most marketable athletes in the world. He’s also worth around 168 million, give or take a million.
