She was the cover model for the 2011 issue. Shayk was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russia, to ethnic Tatar father and Russian mother. She says she inherited her unusual looks from her father and she has said that people often think she is South American. Ã¢Â€ÂœMy father was dark skinned, because he was Tatar, sometimes Tatars can look Brazilian,Ã¢Â€Â she says. Ã¢Â€ÂœI get my light eyes from my mother.Ã¢Â€Â ShaykÃ¢Â€Â™s mother Olga was a pianist who was the music teacher in a kindergarten and her father was a coal miner. She has one sibling, an older sister named Tatiana. Shayk started playing piano at age six. At age nine she enrolled in a music school and studied there for seven years, both playing the piano and singing in the choir since her mother wanted her to study music. Her father died of complications of pneumonia when she was 14, leaving her family with little money and forcing her mother to work two jobs to provide for the family.
