Irina Shayk has an incredibly impressive modeling resume, and she’s now even breaking into acting. Irina was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, and while her mother was Russian, her father was a Volga Tatar, born of that Turkic ethnic group that is native to Russia’s Volga-Ural region. This is of note because the Volga Tatars tend to have darker skin tones, and Irina often credits her father’s genes for her olive skin and stunning looks, saying that she got her contrasting light eyes from her mother.
