How was Irina’s life in Russia?
In the past, during an interaction with Vogue UK, the 36-year-old supermodel talked about her upbringing in Russia. She said, ‘I was born and raised in a town called Yemanzhelinsk, in the middle of nowhere in Russia. My father was a coal miner and my mom was a pianist – she couldn’t find a job, so she played for kids in kindergarten. It was a very simple life: one main street, no movie theatre, no restaurants.’
She continued, ‘In summer you grow vegetables and bury them, so in wintertime you have potatoes, carrots, everything, so you can survive. When I moved to New York, I was shocked that people go to the supermarket and buy potatoes. I was like, “That’s crazy.”‘
Shayk also opened up about losing her father at the young of 14. She further added, ‘He was the healthiest man alive, and at 44, out of the blue, he was coughing for a while then got pneumonia and died. Me, my mom, and my sister were left. Three women. We learnt how to early in life, even when we had a father, because in Russia you have to.’
She also posted a picture that stood for world peace on her Instagram story. Apart from Irina, many other celebs have like ‘Deadpool’ star Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively also volunteered to provide a helping hand to the people of Ukraine.
