After hours of speculation, Fiji Water Girl, real name Kelleth Cuthbert, revealed her identity on Instagram, writing: "Not the worst way to spend a Sunday..."

While she became a viral sensation as the Fiji Water Girl who photo-bombed today's top stars at the Golden Globes on Sunday, she primarily works in commercial acting and fashion modeling.

The outlet was also among the first to tweet about her presence on the red carpet, calmly photobombing some of the celebrities.

The model was totally unaware of all the social media furore surrounding her appearance on the red carpet, where she wore a long blue gown. Given her job of the night, she quickly became known as FIJI Water Girl.

After her gone-viral photobombs, Cuthbert spoke with Glamour about being an overnight Internet sensation, saying, "I do love a good meme, so I think it's incredibly ironic and amusing that I'm one now".

In what appears to be a perfectly timed PR stunt, the model appeared in photos with several celebrities such as Jim Carrey and Idris Elba.

"To Richard Madden - thank you for giving me my start ... to Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans for allowing me the space to have my best angle", Cuthbert said tongue in cheek.

She claims the Golden Globes was a once in a lifetime experience, despite having been in the industry for 12 years.

If you Google "Fiji Water", the first question that pops up is, "What is so special about Fiji Water?" However, she recently featured in a video wherein she gave out tips for photobombing correctly.

"She's right behind us, isn't she?" Back in 2010, after spending one day working together in Los Angeles, we did the adult thing and stuffed our feelings for each other down. The model, who is represented by the Wilhemina agency, has nearly 170,000 followers on Instagram.

With a tray of bottles and a subtly-raised eyebrow, "Fiji Water Girl" was nearly ever-present as the stars arrived, staring straight down the camera and winning over hundreds of social media users.
