Her social media shows her modelling portfolio as well as her jet setting lifestyle in typical Instagram model fashion.

But who exactly is she and why is she famous?

Who is Rafaella Santos?

Rafaella Santos is a model born on March 11, 1996.

She has found herself gaining a large online audience, and has been praised as a style icon.

Her 5.6 million followers feeds usually see the blonde beauty showing off her latest outfits, probably as part of her modelling contracts.

Rafaella is heavily invested in the charity Instituto Neymar.

The Brazilian created the charity in 2014, which focuses on helping disadvantaged children who live in Praia Grande, Sao Paulo, located near where the siblings were raised.

Neymar's sister had previously been in a relationship with Inter Milan forward Gabriel Barbosa but the couple allegedly broke up in 2018.

Why is she famous?

She made her name in modelling when he starred in a World Cup-themed advert for Beats by Dre in 2014.

Her incredibly close relationship with her brother has stretched as far as them getting matching tattoos.

Neymar Jr. once said: "My heart is yours, my love is yours, my smile is yours, my day, my night, my longing, my best company".

She has some quirky qualities too, as she reportedly changed her surname from ''Da Silva Santos'' to ''Beckran'' due to her idolisation of now-retired David Beckham.

She also made the headlines because Neymar always seems to be suspended or injured around her birthday.

Whilst at Barcelona, Neymar reportedly always flew back to Brazil to be with his family on March 11 even though they are still in season.

At the time the Brazilian youngster had to get permission from his manager and captains before he was allowed to make the trip back to his home country.

Continuing on for five years, this year the Brazilian opted to stay in Paris and play for the first time as oppose to going to Brazil.
