Toned and tanned, Claudine’s every inch a california girl

CLAUDINE Keane dazzled in Tinsletown on her first official appearance.

The Hollywood-based wife of Irish football captain and LA Galaxy’s newest recruit Robbie Keane happily posed in front of the cameras to help promote her husband’s new club.

After shooting down speculation earlier this week that she was lonely in LA, Claudine was on hand to lend some star quality to an exclusive event in Silicon Valley yesterday.

At the launch of the Irish Technology Leadership Group and the opening of their California business, Claudine turned up looking toned, tanned and every inch a Californian girl.

As part of the event, the model mum presented a Galaxy jersey to John Hartnett, the founder of the Irish-based company, which was signed by her 31-year-old husband. Wearing a black bodycon mini dress and a cropped cream jacket, Claudine showed off her enviable figure.

The Keanes have been searching for the perfect home in LA, but Claudine has admitted to missing her family.


Last week, the Herald revealed how Claudine’s mother Joan flew stateside to keep her company. However, things are looking up for the blonde beauty. New mum Victoria Beckham, wife of Robbie’s LA Galaxy team-mate David Beckham has contacted Claudine and the pair are hopeful about meeting up.

An insider said that the busy Spice Girl – who has just released her seventh clothing line in the Big Apple - said the new mum is eager to meet up with Claudine. Victoria was in New York this week for Fashion Week there and brought along her adorable baby daughter Harper for the trip.

Earlier this week, Claudine shot down suggestions that she was “lonely” in LA and disappointed that Victoria Beckham did not contact her.

She said that was not the case. She also added that she appreciated that as a new mum and a fashion designer, Victoria would not have the time to contact Claudine but had told she was hopeful of meeting her in the near future.
