Cristiano Ronaldo recently introduced his Spanish girlfriend Nereida Gallardo to his family, but it's likely one topic was off the list of dinner party conversations – her racy past.
Before meeting the Manchester United midfielder, the 24-year-old was an aspiring glamour model prepared to show rather a lot of in her efforts to make ends meet while working as a nursing assistant.

Making a splash: the Spanish brunette pursued modelling while working as a nursing assistant
Pictures have surfaced showing the brunette posing provocatively on the beach in a series of scantily clad outfits while hoping to break into modelling.
Nereida, who continues to work in health care, had little success attracting the attention of a big agency, but has instead managed to add WAG to her CV.
And it's a role she clearly takes seriously – earlier this week she was spotted wearing a specially-designed 'R7' logo diamond earring, in honour of her striker boyfriend Ronaldo, who wears United number 7 shirt.
Nereida cheered on her man at Old Trafford with the rather large earring sparkling in her ear as she turned up to watch United triumph over Barcelona in the Champion's League semi-final.

Getting serious: the brunette has already been introduced to Ronaldo's family, where she presumably opted for a more demure outfit than this barely-there number
Ronaldo, who once dated jungle babe Gemma Atkinson, has been dating Nereida since January after the pair met at a Spanish nightclub.
He now regularly flies the pin-up from her home in Mallorca to watch him in action for United.
A friend of brunette told The Sun: "She's totally smitten and so is he.
"Their relationship is looking pretty serious."
Ear bling: Nereida showed off her new earring, a diamond-studded creation featuring the letter 'R' and number '7' earlier
