A former Marine turned model has revealed men have offered to pay her for ‘private photos’ and have even proposed to her after seeing her sultry snaps—but her policy is to ignore such inquiries.
Shannon Ihrke, 29, from Minnesota, went viral when her bikini and modelling pictures started trending online.
The gorgeous blonde joined the military aged 19 and served on active duty for four years but has since formed a career as a full-time model.
She now has 73,000 followers on Instagram and shares with them pictures from her bikini and lingerie shoots as well as candid photos of her life at home.
Her newfound online fame means Shannon sometimes receives attention in unexpected ways.
‘You get those guys who will offer you money for their own “private photos” or marriage proposals, but I just ignore them and sometimes just laugh them off,’ she said.
‘I model because it’s something I love to do, it’s not to get money or marriage proposals from men. I’ve even had people I’ve never met say they want to fly me places. That’s never going to happen, I’ve seen the movie Taken before.
‘I simply enjoy exploring my modelling range and working with some incredibly talented artists and trying to help others along the way. ‘
