Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has become another man who has fallen into the charms of breath-taking beauty of Russian ladies. Tabloids actively discuss Ronaldo’s love affair with 24-year-old Russian model Irina Sheik. Irina, who won Miss Chelyabinsk-2004 beauty pageant, moved from her hometown to Paris five years ago. The girl could hardly ever imagine that she would be having a love affair with the most expensive football player in the world.
Born as Irina Sheikhlislamova, the girl spent her childhood in a tiny apartment in the town of Emanzhelinsk, in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia. She was a good student at school and enjoyed studying foreign languages.
“She was conspicuous among her peers. She was tall and slim,” Irina’s former chemistry teacher told Vesti.ru.
The model’s friends say that Irina was always in perfect shape.

“She has nothing unnatural. I know for sure that her body is totally natural, I saw it myself – she has no implants,” Irina’s former classmate Katya said.
Irina was born to become a fashion model. She went to a local agency in Chelyabinsk in 2004. The agency was not impressed with her body and face. The same year Irina won a regional beauty pageant and went to Moscow. Afterwards, she traveled to New York and Paris.
Irina Sheik has been on the catwalk for Guess, Lacoste, Missoni and La Perla. She was a lingerie model for Intimisimi and appeared on the covers of fashion magazines. Now the model works with Armani: she met Ronaldo when shooting a commercial for this fashion house.
The footballer asked the model out on a date, and the girl accepted the invitation. The couple flew from Madrid to Corsica on board a private jet and then rented a luxury yacht, the Olialia for 8,000 euros a day.
Five days later, Irina called her family in Chelyabinsk and told them of her trip to Corsica with Ronaldo. Irina’s mother does not make any comments about her daughter’s private life. Ronaldo does not communicate with reporters at all at the moment – he is too busy getting ready for the World Football Championship in South Africa.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 25, is one of the world’s most desirable single men. He currently makes $40 million a year. The list of his girlfriends includes Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Irina Sheik is a former girlfriend of Rob Bourdon, the drummer of Linkin Park.
