Crowned Sexiest Man Alive by People in 2011, it’s needless to say that Bradley Cooper is and always will be, a major celebrity heartthrob. If his talented acting on-screen wasn’t enough, we now know he has a gorgeous singing voice (and can direct, too), as shown in his multi-award-winning film A Star Is Born. Pairing him with stunning Russian model Irina Shayk, they are, without a doubt, one of Hollywood’s hottest couples… and now, parents!
Below, we take a look at the couple's relationship timeline.
So long, partner! Before dating the one and only Bradley Cooper, Shayk went out with international football star Christiano Ronaldo for five years.
Around the same time, Bradley Cooper and English model Suki Waterhouse called it quits, ending their two-year relationship.
April 2015 - The love affair begins…
Suspicions arose of the couple’s relationship when they were spotted watching Broadway Production Finding Neverland together in New York City.
The pair is seen sunbathing together on the pebbly shores of the Amalfi Coast in Italy, confirming their couple status.
September 2015 – Brushing shoulders with the family…
We knew the relationship was serious when Shayk was spotted spending some quality time in Atlantic City, NJ with Cooper and his mum, Gloria Campano.
Their relationship is official! After Shayk was appointed brand ambassador for the French Beauty brand in October 2015, the couple made their red carpet debut together at the L'Oreal Red Obsession Party. Taking place during Paris Fashion Week, the pair even shared a kiss!
The honeymoon phase of the relationship continues… Shayk shares an intimate photo of the lovebirds standing in a swimming pool, exposing their torsos.
The pair looked cosy together on the red carpet at the Met Gala, with Shayk standing out in a royal blue Givenchy gown and Cooper in a classic suit. Anna Wintour would've shipped it big time.
Doubts began to circulate when Shayk was reportedly crying next to Cooper at the Wimbledon’s men’s final match in London. We sighed with relief when sources told TMZ the tears were just because of allergies – phew!
Shayk returned to the Victoria's Secret runway and unbeknownst to the public, was carrying Cooper’s child as she strutted the runway! The exciting news was only revealed after the annual event.
Following the announcement of Shayk’s pregnancy, it would only make sense to the public that her Kate Middleton-esque emerald ring meant that her and Bradley were getting hitched! Irina has continued to wear the ring since, however, the couple has never responded to engagement rumours.
The perfect pair welcome their baby girl Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper into the world on March 21. Since the birth of their daughter, the power-couple have been more united than ever. Cooper told People in an interview how the birth of his daughter has “…opened me up even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present.”
Smitten as ever, Cooper and Shayk held hands in a rare public appearance at the Met Gala event in New York City. Unsurprisingly, the pair paraded the red carpet in stunning attire – Shayk in a gold-beaded Atelier Versace gown, and Cooper in a Tom Ford tux.
In light of Cooper’s blockbuster film A Star Is Born, the couple attended the Golden Globes together to celebrate the film’s multiple nominations. The pair looked super loved-up with their very obvious PDAs, and Shayk seemed very proud of her man. Once again, they were dressed immaculately – Shayk rocked a gold Versace dress, and Cooper looked handsome in his white suit and black bow-tie.
The unbreakable duo recently attended the 2019 BAFTA awards in London together, wearing matching suits – serious couple goals… #twinning! Cooper, after receiving an outstanding five nominations for A Star Is Born, took home the Best Film Music Award. In his acceptance speech, Cooper gushed over Shayk, “Thank you for putting up with me”. We're sure she doesn't find it too difficult...
