Who is Bradley Cooper’s Girlfriend, Irina Shayk?

Anytime a star plays the lead in a romantic movie, people start to wonder about the actor’s actual love life.

Bradley Cooper is no different. After his role in A Star is Born, people began to question if there was something going on between him and his costar Lady Gaga. The chemistry between the two was enthralling, after all.

But it may have all just been really good acting as Cooper is actually already in a committed relationship with supermodel Irina Shayk.

Who is Irina Shayk?

One look at Shayk and her profession is pretty clear. The Russian beauty is a successful supermodel.

Before getting into modeling, Shayk attended a music school where she focused on playing the piano. Later, she studied marketing.

Her modeling career didn’t take off until she won Miss Chelyabinsk in 2004. Since then, the model has graced the covers of several high-end magazines including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and GQ.

She isn’t just a print model, either. She has also walked runways for Versace, Marc Jacobs, Moschino, and more.

In 2014, the model branched out into the acting world and appeared in the movie Hercules.

One of her biggest jobs has been as a Victoria’s Secret angel. She has walked the runway for several years and even participated in the show when she was pregnant!

At the time of the show in 2016, no one knew that Shayk was carrying a baby.

“Looking back, some of her outfits were less revealing in the stomach and seeing the news after the show, it made sense,” a source told People. “No one suspected backstage, that’s for sure! She looked as beautiful as ever.”


Shayk and Cooper have been dating since 2015, but don’t feel bad if you had no idea bout the relationship. The two have kept their romance very quiet.

“I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly,” Shayk said to Glamour UK. “I admire it and I think it’s great — but I think it’s all about personal choice.”

For Shayk and Cooper, keeping their personal lives private has been the best route.

“Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet,” she continued. “That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”

In fact, the couple has been so secretive that they only just made their red carpet debut together in 2018 at the Met Gala.

Since then, they have been slightly more public with their relationship.

Cooper came to support Shayk at the 2019 Versace pre-fall show as she graced the runway and the model supported her boyfriend at the 2019 Golden Globes.

When Cooper won a BAFTA award in early February for Best Original Music, he even thanked Shayk onstage.

“I also need to thank Irina for putting up with me while I was trying to make music in our basement for a year,” he said.
