She is also an Instagram star, with over 2.5 million followers, so if you want to learn more about her, let us tell you all about her beginnings, her dreams, and her future projects.
Who are her parents?
Kristina is the only child of Glikeriya Shirokova, a former model, and Ruslan Primenov, a former football player. She has an older half-sister, Natalia, from her mother’s side. It hasn’t been disclosed whether their mother was married before she met Ruslan Primenov.
Although Glikeriya was a model, she gained international popularity by marrying the famous football player, Ruslan Valeryevich Pimenov, who played for Dynamo Moscow, and for Russia at the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup in 2002.
Kristina’s mother came into the spotlight at the start of her modeling career as a moderator of her Instagram account. Some people accused Glikeriya of posting photos of her daughter that they felt were inappropriate for her age – she disagreed with these remarks, claiming that all of Kristina’s photos were innocent, and that anyone who sees something sexual in them may think of themselves as pedophiles. Her mother still manages her social media accounts.
Kristina began her modeling career aged four. Her mother sent Kristina’s photos to the modeling agency President Kids, and she soon launched her career in the fashion industry. Kristina also practiced gymnastics, and won a gold medal at the 2013 gymnastics tournament in Tatarstan, an important cultural center in Russia.
Subsequently, Kristina began working for brands such as Roberto Cavalli, Armani, Burberry, and Benetton. In 2014, Kristina was called ‘the most beautiful girl in the world’ by Women Daily magazine.
The following year, Kristina moved to California with her mother, and the same year was on the cover of Vogue Kids; at the age of 10, she was already a top model. In 2016, Radio Television Luxembourg (RTL) aired a documentary about Kristina’s life and modeling career.
