Bonya said she removed one of her earrings during the meal and then forgot about it, leaving it behind with a set of headphones.

The earrings are reportedly made of tanzanite and diamonds and are worth 429,740 RUB (5,223.33 GBP). The ring is also made of tanzanite and diamonds and is worth 647,800 RUB (7,873 GBP).

When she realised she had left her headphones at the venue, she went back and was surprised when staff returned them along with one of her jewel-encrusted earrings.

The stunning 39-year-old said: “I was so shocked when I got my earring back along with my headphones. How can I not believe in miracles after that?”

In September, Bonya posted a video of her shopping in London for her daughter’s first day at school after moving to the UK from sunny Monaco.

The 39-year-old said that her daughter will have better opportunities in the UK rather than the small city-state of Monaco where they have been living for the last six years.

Bonya gave birth to her only child Angeline Laeticia when she was with Smurfit, son of Irish multi-millionaire Sir Michael Smurfit, from 2010 to 2017.

She decided to bring the seven-year-old to the UK because she is an avid horse rider and Monaco is not well set up for equestrian sports, according to Bonya.

The yummy mummy promised her daughter that she would take her back to Monaco every other weekend.

Bonya, who calls herself a “full-time mum”, told Central European News (CEN): “I try to spend all my time with her so she can get used to her new surroundings quickly and feel at ease here.”

Meanwhile, the stunning model believes that British men are just like any other nationality in the world except they “simply have a British accent”.

She added: “On a serious note, English men are like English women, they are very moderate in all areas of their lives, in my opinion. I would also say that they are gallant, polite and, most importantly, restrained.”
