4. She’s fresh out of a serious relationship with someone you may recognize: Yep, Irina is recently single after splitting from hot soccer player Christiano Ronaldo. Her rep confirmed in January that the couple had broken up after five years together, noting, “Any negative rumors with regards to Irina and the Ronaldo family are completely false, and have not been a factor in the cause of the split.”
