At 40 years old, Sarah Shahi still possesses a youthful glow, exceptionally since she maintained her slim and sexy figure throughout the years. Ranked by various big-name magazines as one of the hottest personalities in three consecutive years, from 2005 to 2007, it’s easy to say that Sarah Shahi has an undeniably impressive ass and boobs. Her remarkable figure even led her to be Covergirl in the 2000 bikini calendar for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
Born in 1980 in Euless, Texas, the actress’s real name is Aahoo Jahansouz Shahi. It is reminiscent of the family’s long Persian ancestry. She comes from the Qajar Dynasty and a great-great-granddaughter of the former ruler of Iran.
Aahoo is a beautiful name, which means gazelle in Persian, one befitting the beauty and charm of Sarah Shahi. However, her unusual name in the US became a constant subject of torment from other kids in school. That led the actress to adopt the name “Sarah,” which she heard from a song when she was still young.
Before pursuing a career in show business, Sarah Shahi first entered the pageant scene when she was still eight years old. In 1997, she got the crown during the Miss Fort Worth competition. With her hopes for a career in show business, the actress decided to join the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. It was a great stepping stone for Sarah Shahi, despite not having any experience joining a cheering squad before.
