Danny O'Donoghue is dating a Brazilian Sports Illustrated model and fair play, like

Danny O'Donoghue: you might assume he isn't all that famous and then you think about and realise that actually he really is.

Dan was raised in Ballinteer in Dublin. At the age of 20 he went to LA to write songs for the likes of Britney Spears and TLC. Then he founded The Script - a band that has sold millions of records and has notched up No1 singles in the UK and Ireland as well as a Top 5 album in the US.

He furthermore appeared as a judge on The Voice UK - alongside Will.I.Am and Tom Jones.

So far so famous. Still, we nevertheless had a 'fair play to ya, boyo' moment earlier today when we noted that Danny is currently dating a Brazilian Sports Illustrated model.

Anne De Paula is 22 and seems to have an incredibly successful modelling career. That and she hopes to eventually pursue a career in medicine (her parents are both doctors).

She previously told GQ Portugal: "I love my work but I want to do other things besides being a model. I want to finish my studies and get my degree in medicine. It’s another dream I have.

"My parents work in that area and they are my role models."

It is believed Anne first met Danny when she starred in The Script’s video for the single No Good In Goodbye almost four years ago.

She's well-used to hanging out in his native Dublin too. Last year, Danny told 2fm: "She has loads of mates here, there’s a big Brazilian community here in college and working.

"I never even realised that. It’s probably one of the biggest destinations for Brazilians because the people are lovely."
