Kim Kardashian, Nereida Gallardo and Irina Shayk have all been connected to Cristiano Ronaldo at some point. (Photo Agency | Photo Agency | Getty Images) More on Cristiano Ronaldo
's girlfriends are talked about in the press almost as much as the star Portuguese footballer. Not only does Ronaldo date incredibly hot models you may or may not have heard of. He's also been connected to celebrities like Paris Hilton
Following Kim Kardashian
and Reggie Bush's break-up back in April, rumors almost immediately started leaking that the curvy celebutante was seeing Ronaldo. The rumors started after Kim was spotted having an intimate dinner with him at a restaurant in Madrid, but ultimately nothing seemed to happen.

Before that, Ronaldo was connected to Spanish beauty Nereida Gallardo
, a model who he supposedly met at a night club in Mallorca. It doesn't appear that the two have sustained a relationship lately though.
That might be because most recently Ronaldo has been connected to Victoria's Secret model Irina Shayk
. Irina is a Russian model with an exotic look that's hard to resist. British news outlet The Sun reported in May
that Ronaldo had been spotted vacationing with Irina on an expensive yacht off the Corsican coast.
The point? Ronaldo is a tanned, Portuguese playboy whose stature at the clubs is matched only by his performance on the pitch. For now we're calling Irina Shayk his World Cup WAG, but that doesn't mean anything will come of the fiery romance. To see our full list of World Cup Wives and Girlfriends, check out our special here
