Leandro Penna is an Argentinian model who looks lovely in his underwear, best known in the UK for being linked to glamour model and full time limelight hogger, Jordan aka Katie Price.
The pair met at an Oscars after party hosted by Elton John and David Furnish and Leandro seems pretty smitten with Jordan, despite admitting there is a slight language barrier. But who needs words when you have true love and Google translate?
He has said she is divine and even introduced her to his parents in his native Argentina while she has introduced him to her three children, Harvey, Princess and Junior.
In Argentina Leandro is, as he claimed, a bit famous. He has modelled in his smalls for loads of designers, including Louis Vuitton! But his main passion is TV (good thing he hangs out with Katie and her travelling camera circus).
He was a resident lifeguard on the Argentinian version of Hole in the Wall (as in ‘Bring on the wall!’, remember that?!), but has also had quite a few good TV presenting parts in Argentina which is why he was invited to that fateful post Oscars party where he met Katie (he didn’t dress up as a waiter like you all were thinking).
However, it turned out that Leandro’s image wasn’t quite so squeaky clean when it emerged he has a love child living in Argentina and a meanie ex-girlfriend sold a story claiming Leandro is a recovering sex addict.
