Revisit Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s four-plus-year relationship outside the spotlight after their June 2019 split — photos
From couple to coparents! Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk preferred to keep their romance quiet over the years, but throughout their relationship, they have found a way to stay friends.
The A Star Is Born actor and the model were first spotted spending time together in New York in April 2015. The duo made their relationship official the following month with a PDA-filled trip to London.
Cooper and Shayk continued to keep their romance private until the Russia native unveiled a baby bump at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in November 2016.
The couple welcomed their daughter, Lea De Seine, in March 2017 and Cooper reflected on his life as a father one year later.
“Having a child, and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I’ve always dreamt of — has opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present,” he said in an interview with NPR in September 2018.
Cooper made headlines in early 2019 for his chemistry with A Star Is Born costar Lady Gaga, both on and offscreen. While Shayk supported her boyfriend at the time, the pair split up in June 2019 and a source told Us Weekly that the romance rumors played a role.
“The movie had a major impact on Bradley and Irina’s relationship,” a source exclusively told Us at the time. “Even though there was nothing romantic between Bradley and Gaga, the noise was difficult for Irina to deal with.”
Another source revealed that the exes “haven’t been getting along for a while” and that they were “not in a great place” leading up to the end of their relationship.
Since their breakup, Cooper and Shayk have been focused on their daughter.
“They share a balanced schedule with their daughter, which also varies based on their work obligations,” an insider explained to Us in February 2021. “There have been no arguments about Lea’s schedule. Bradley usually is busier and has back-to-back films lined up, but he makes sure he spends a lot of time with Lea.”
This new normal for the twosome allowed for them to develop a friendship as well.
“They are on healthy terms and are very respectful of one another, making the coparenting process much more seamless and smooth,” the source added. “At this point in time, they are better off as friends.”
While Cooper and Shayk have found a way to make things work between them as coparents, they still choose not to speak about it publicly.
“My past relationship, it’s something that belongs to me, and it’s private. It’s just a piece of my inner self that I don’t want to give away,” Shayk clarified to Elle in March 2021.
