Guess who just got €800 shoes for her birthday?

ANY girl loves new shoes -- and when they're €800 Louboutins, who could blame Holly Carpenter for showing them off?

Leinster rugby star Cian Healy earned himself a lot of bonus points when he splashed out for girlfriend Holly's 21st birthday.

"When I took out the box and saw Christian Louboutin on the cover I started shaking," she told the Herald.

"I couldn't believe it. I think he thought I'd been hinting for ages. Every time we go shopping I point out things I like, but I didn't think he would actually get me a pair."

The Raheny model broke her new shoes in at the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note II this week and claimed they were "actually really comfortable".

When asked about his purchase the rugby star, who will lineout for Leinster against Exeter tomorrow, joked: "Yeah, Gok Wan I am."

He also bought Holly a Polaroid camera for her big day.

She revealed: "I've wanted one for ages but they are really hard to find. They're pretty rare these days. I think it took him a good while to track it down."

Cian also celebrated his 25th birthday last week.

But Holly wasn't quite as extravagant as Cian when it came to birthday gifts.

"I decided to go down the sentimental route -- I baked him cupcakes and painted a picture of his dog Ted," she revealed.
