Cristiano Ronaldo's Girlfriend Irina Shayk Named 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue' Cover Girl!

Race for the newsstands boys, Russian bombshell Irina is the new lusty lady featured on the famed cover!

It may be the greatest upset in the history of modelling as Russian beauty Irina Shayk, girlfriend to soccer star (or footballer) Cristiano Ronaldo, has landed the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue — beating out heavy favorite Brooklyn Decker. Mock-ups decorated the streets of New York City this past week of covers featuring Irina, Brooklyn and another Russian beauty, Anne Vyalitsyna, but Brooklyn had been expected by most to snag her second straight cover.

The announcement was made during a taping of David Letterman‘s late night show and seconds later a billboard was revealed featuring the new superstar model.

So what do you think HollywoodLifers? Did Sports Illustrated get it right?
