Claudine Keane has beaten fellow California WAG Victoria Beckham in a beach body poll.

Soccer star Robbie Keane's wife has already received the thumbs up from Hollywood after voters were wowed by her stunning figure on celebrity website TMZ -- dubbing her 'smokin hot'.

Yummy-mummy Claudine jetted in to LA yesterday with Robbie, looking every bit the superstar, in a relaxed blue velour tracksuit, topped off with a Hermes Birken bag.

TMZ is currently pitting Claudine against original WAG Victoria, who is married to Robbie's new LA Galaxy teammate David Beckham.

The site asked fans to vote on which of the two ladies looked better in a bikini -- and Dublin gal Claudine is making waves, with voters overwhelmed by her Irish beauty.

The glamorous pair will set up home in LA for two years, after husband Robbie signed a lucrative contract with LA Galaxy this week.

The former Tottenham star was set to be officially unveiled at the club today and could even make his debut against the San Jose Earthquakes tomorrow.

The Republic of Ireland striker was granted a US visa earlier this week and was to be introduced to his new team mates at training today before a news conference.

Claudine has made no secret of her delight over her hubby's latest transfer. "Would I like to see him play for a team like LA Galaxy? Yes, I would love that," she said before the move.

The couple will undoubtedly welcome the Beckhams' friendship, as well as their Hollywood pals Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, as well as Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Fashion lover Claudine is sure to have plenty in common with Victoria, with both ladies being mothers to young children. Claudine's son Robert Jnr is two years old, while Victoria has just given birth to her fourth child, Harper.

Former Miss Ireland contestant Claudine is expected to be snapped up immediately by local model agents.

It's a far cry from Grafton Street, and the stunning WAG can also look forward to enjoying retail therapy on Wilshire Boulevard and in Rodeo Drive's designer boutiques.
