Who is Lorena Bernal?

Lorena was born on May 12, 1981 in Tucuman, Argentina - but she moved to San Sebastian in Spain at the age of one.

But she was on the move again, this time to America to begin working as a model at seven years old.

The brunette beauty has since worked as a TV host and actress in Spain and in America, featuring on Chuck and CSI: Miami.

The model can speak French, Spanish and English.

Did she win the Miss World competition?

She was named Miss Spain 1999 at the age of 17.

But she could not represent herself in the Miss Universe because of her age.

The model then went to Miss World where she came in the top ten.

When did she get married to Mikel Arteta and do they have any children?

She met the former Arsenal star in 2002 and claims that she did not know he was a footballer when they first met.

After dating for six years, the couple got married in Mallorca, Spain in 2010.

The pair have three sons together: Gabriel, Daniel and Oliver.

Is she on social media?

As you would expect with not only a model and actress, but also the wife of a well-known sports star - Lorena has built up a tidy following.

She has over 34,300 followers on Instagram, where she regularly posts photoshoots, family life and destinations she has visited.
