Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 covergirl is Irina Shayk

Russian supermodel Irina Shayk and girlfriend of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, in on the cover of this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The Russian model’s cover was briefly revealed earlier today on a large billboard in New York’s Times Square for a segment to air later tonight on “Late Show with David Letterman.”

But the news and photo leaked on Twitter on Tuesday – what a surprise!

Shayk beat model Brooklyn Decker to the coveted covergirl spot.

As well as her work on the catwalk and in fashion magazines, Shayk is also known for dating soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Monday night on “The Bachelor”, several of the women were photographed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition as well!

Watch the steamy footage below.
