‘Two great people don’t have to make a good couple’

According to British Vogue, Shayk doesn’t think Cooper is a bad man. “I think in all good relationships you bring your best and your worst — it’s just the nature of a human being. Two great people don’t have to make a good couple.”

There’s an old saying “Don’t be sad that it’s over, be happy that it happened.” Shayk seems to have a similar attitude towards her relationship with Cooper. “I think we’ve been very lucky to experience what we had with each other. Life without B is new ground.”

According to Harper’s Bazaar, Cooper and Shayk have a daughter together named Lea de Seine. Being a single mother has its difficulties for Shayk. “It’s hard to find a balance between being a single mom and being a working woman and provider. Trust me, there are days I wake up and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I don’t know what to do, I’m falling apart.'”

Shayk’s feelings on motherhood are interesting as she once felt she should have been male. “I felt I was supposed to be a boy… I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because my father always wanted a boy.”

These feelings did not last. “When [my father] passed away, I thought, ‘Since I’m a guy, now it’s my time to take care of the family. I said to myself I would never get married. Of course, later on in life I outgrew that, and I love being a woman. But I remember that feeling.”

Although Shayk had a good relationship with Cooper, she feels certain men are scared of her “coldness.” “I have a strong personality and I definitely know what I want, and I think some men are scared of that. If somebody’s out of my life, they’re out of my life and I really cut all the ties, you know?  I think some people are really scared of this coldness. I also think not many people know that underneath this there’s a nice, sweet person who cries in interviews.”

Shayk’s interview seems mellow on the surface. However, she admitted via Instagram made he want to cry, reports Fox News. Regarding British Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, Shaky wrote: “Since the day we met until now, my friendship with you has meant so much more than work.. And being chosen by you @Edward_Enninful to be on the March cover of @BritishVogue, is an honor. Thank you for making me a part of your vision, and always making me laugh, even when I wanted to cry while we did the interview:))).”

Despite any upset the interview caused, Shayk was glad to be part of it. “And thank you for your friendship @MertAlas @MacPiggott .. can’t wait to celebrate it with all of you ❤️ #BritishVogue @AliKavoussi.” It’s inspiring to see Shayk be positive in the face of her personal trials and travails.
