Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and SI swimsuit model Irina Shayk getting married?
Portuguese media are reporting that soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Irina Shayk may get married later this summer.
Ronaldo — who plays for Real Madrid and is the ninth richest athlete in the world, according to Forbes (2013 earnings: $44 million)— is expected to marry Shayk on the island of Porto Santo in Portugal. That’s near where Ronaldo was born.
He and Shayk have been dating for more than three years.
Shayk has appeared in the 2007-2013 SI Swimsuit Editions. She was the cover model for the 2011 issue. She has also modeled for Armani, Guess and Beach Bunny Swimwear.
Last April, Ronaldo denied reports that he cheated on Shayk by having an affair with Andressa Urach — the runner-up to Miss Butt Brazil. (Yes, there is actually a competition for that coveted title.)
“It was incredible, his body’s perfect, like a Greek god,” Urach said. “He went on for hours and would not stop talking about my butt.”
The denial must have been good enough for Shayk to plan a wedding.
Of course, Ronaldo is mixing a little business with pleasure on that island. He reportedly wants to build a luxury hotel there.
