Former Miss Russia Victoria Lopyreva has been spotted taking a stroll down Miami beach with her boyfriend after giving birth to their ‘anchor baby’ son.
The 35-year-old beauty queen and FIFA World Cup 2018 ambassador was all smiles Monday sporting a busty black top alongside her wealthy businessman baby daddy Igor Bulatov.
This is the couple’s first public sighting since welcoming their son Mark Leo last month in Miami.
Victoria kept her pregnancy under wraps, only revealing she was expecting at eight months, and gave birth to the boy on US soil.

Their newborn son was nowhere in sight as the couple cuddled up on a shared lounge chair under a beach umbrella.
The 2003 Miss Russia beauty queen dished about her love for the Miami sunshine to DailyMail.com in January, just before she gave birth.
‘I like to swim and have plenty of opportunity in Miami. I’m breathing sea air during romantic walks along the beach,’ she said.
The couple decided to have their baby in Miami, rather than their native Russia, because of Victoria’s love for the ocean and ‘warm weather.
News of Victoria’s pregnancy and relationship status came as a surprise to many as she had kept the identity of the baby’s father a closely guarded secret.
The rumor mill was in overdrive since her pregnancy announcement in December, with insiders claiming the father was Russian singer Nikolai Baskov or even politician, Vitaly Mutko.

After much speculation surrounding the father of her baby, Victoria revealed that it is businessman Igor Bulatov, 35 (right) who she said ‘did literally sweep me off my feet’
Victoria, a FIFA World Cup ambassador, previously kept her pregnancy and relationship under wraps, only announcing the father of her child at eight months pregnant
However, Victoria revealed before her delivery that the father is her boyfriend Igor, who she referred to as Harry in her interview with DailyMail.com.
‘Harry is a businessman; an entrepreneur and we met via friends,’ Victoria said. ‘He’s a private person, which I respect. He did literally sweep me off my feet.’
Igor is the vice-president of the Tashir group of companies, which develops and manages trading real estate and business centers.
‘Harry is so far removed from my showbiz world and I love that,’ she explained. ‘More action than words. Our news felt very personal and we wanted to enjoy it together for as long as possible.’

Victoria explained that her ambassadorship to the 2018 World Cup kept her busy while going through the stages of pregnancy.
‘I was traveling the world to promote the football championship, I didn’t want to slow down or for anyone to encourage me to take it easy, and so I kept our news to myself. I was keen to focus on my role and to deliver for my country.’
She added: ‘Harry would have preferred to stay in the wings, which I understood but there was media speculation about my pregnancy that at some point was impossible to hide, so I made an announcement.’
‘This of course provoked questions of paternity. So now we have nothing to hide and everything to show: our happiness, our love.’
It’s unclear if the couple have plans to move their lives back to Russia, but for now they are raising their son in the Miami sunshine and appear very much in love.
