The Russian supermodel is no stranger to celebrity romances. 

Ever since Tom Brady and Gisele's bombshell announcement that they were getting a divorce after 13 years, rumors have been swirling around the NFL star's love life. For months there was speculation that the quarterback was romancing reality star Kim Kardashian. However, this week evidence surfaced that the future Hall of Famer has been getting cozy with someone else, supermodel Irina Shayk. Photos have surfaced of the two at the Hotel Bel-Air, with Brady picking her up, taking her to his Los Angeles pad, and bringing her home at 9:30 the next day, wearing the same clothes as the day before. Who is Irina Shayk, anyway? Here are 7 things to know about her.
