Los Angeles: Soccer ace Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set to walk down the aisle with model girlfriend Irina Shayk soon.

Ronaldo flew down all the way from Spain to New York to propose to the Russian beauty on Valentine`s Day, reports a website.

According to Britain`s News of the World, Ronaldo presented his girlfriend with a red rose before getting down on bended knee to ask for her hand in marriage.

"We are very happy for them," said a family friend.

Shayk, who recently landed the honour of gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated`s 2011 Swimsuit Issue, met Ronaldo last year after modelling together for the Armani Exchange campaigns.
