Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and his supermodel girlfriend Irina Shayk have been so busy with their respective professions that the hot couple have hardly been seen making a public appearance together.
However, the duo went on a rare dinner date on Sunday to celebrate the Madrid striker's hat-trick at the Santiago Bernabeu against Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish League.
It was Ronaldo's third hat-trick in five matches for Real. The Portuguese ace also equalled the record for the highest number of hat-tricks in the Spanish League - 22 - which he now shares with Spaniards Telmo Zarra and Alfredo di Stefano. The in-form striker has scored 17 goals so far this season - 13 in La Liga, two in the Champions League and two in the UEFA Super Cup final.
Ronaldo (29) and Shayk (28) spent a quiet evening at the Tse Yang - an uber chic Chinese restaurant situated within the premises of Madrid's five star luxury hotel Villa Magna, which is famous for its steamed jasmine rice with lotus leaves and delicious dimsums.
Ronaldo even shared a picture of his romantic evening with Shayk on social media. 'Dinner with Tigriski', he wrote alongside the photograph. Tigriski means 'little tiger' in Russian, and is Ronaldo's nickname for Shayk.
The super busy couple head off for their respective professional commitments rightaway. While Ronaldo returns to football, Shayk travels to Dubai.
According to Arabian Business, Shayk and fellow supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio are scheduled to inaugurate Cle Dubai, a posh restaurant offering Middle Eastern cuisine, at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) on October 13.
